  • 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.

      For a tenner, sure why not? But £2,800? fugdatshit.

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