Hitler fails as an artist…again

(After the Mumbai terror attacks perhaps some light relief is needed.)

A painting by Hitler from the first world war failed to meet its reserve price of £2,800 at auction. The seller had been given the painting two years ago by her son as a birthday gift, who paid £10,500 for it, but she hated it so much that she was happy to sell it at a loss.

Who buys their mother a painting by Hitler? I can just imagine the scene now:

Proud son: “Mum, I got you a painting by that artist you like.”

Mother: “Actually, I said that I didn’t like Hitler.”

Son: “Oh.”

    *ahem* I think it would be poetic justice to burn it…

    Uh-oh, sounds like somebody confused Hitler and Whistler! :D

    But surely burning it would make any remaining paintings more valuable.

    From the script of “The Producers” : “Hitler… there was a painter! He could paint an entire apartment in ONE afternoon! TWO coats! “
