Gingerbread Nazis rally again

WELLINGTON A controversial display featuring swastika-bearing gingerbread men that was yanked from an Oberlin business found a new home in Wellington.

Local artist Keith McGuckin set up the display in an empty storefront at 115 W. Herrick St. on Thursday night. Titled The Secret Lives of Gingerbread Men, the display depicts a small gathering of gingerbread men at a Nazi rally.



It had been set up at an Oberlin hardware store, but the owner ordered it out after deeming the subject matter offensive.

McGuckin, 50, already had established a controversial holiday repertoire using his window display medium before this years choice. He said he relies on edgy material to grab peoples attention.
Last years display of a caroler bashing snowman and a little boy excited to use his unwrapped chemistry set to produce crystal meth came after a 2004 display of a suicide in the front window of a video store.

I remember thinking to myself, Whats the worst thing a gingerbread man can do? he said. Theyre just copying things that people have done. There are no hidden messages here.

I don't suppose it's related in any way to this gingerbread-based Role-playing game?



See:

The Secret Lives of Gingerbread Men is a family-friendly roleplaying game designed for gamers of all ages. The system is easy enough for a beginner to learn and deep enough to challenge experienced players.

Built with a system with only a handful of rules, this game invites you to tell stories about cookies running around your home; no need for a special map! Also, using a recipe that has been in the author's family for generations, characters can be created by mixing dough instead of rolling dice (not that any dice need to be rolled to create a Player Cookie in The Secret Lives of Gingerbread Men).

Get the new, unrevised (but newly (slightly) illlustrated) printing for $12 (including shipping).
