Hitler Tea-kettle is a H I T

Last edited Sun Jun 2, 2013, 12:20 PM - Edit history (1)

on ebay..

the link is to the SOLD teapots.. There are many more for sale.. By making a big deal out of it, many people bought out what was available & are making more money than Penneys would probably have made from a teapot that would probably have been put on sale for half price at some point & may have ended up at Big Lots, like many overpriced utilitarian objects do.

1. Well here's a pic, should explain for people wondering WTF?:

 

For the record, Michael Graves is an architect and like many architects is also in industrial designer (me too to both).

Graves and other famous architects/designers (i am not famous) all designed a teapot like 20 years ago or so. This Hitler pot is Graves' design.

3. As long as they don't try boiling water in the thing...

I haven't seen a Graves design yet that worked worth a shit.

6. I think this story has jumped the Godwin

 

Anthropomorphizing a particular view of a teapot and turning that into Adolf Hitler....ehhhhh, sounds a little funky to me

7. When you squint at it, it vaguely looks like a South Park version of Hitlerů

So, I blame South Park for this atrocity.

8. It's not even a Hitler "teapot". It's a Hitler teaKETTLE.

 

Teapots are for pouring boiling water into for steeping tea. Teakettles are for boiling water. This is the latter.

Am I missing something?

14. I've got a good imagination but

I don't see Hitler in the teapot. It's like Our Lady of the Underpass or Jesus on toast.

I think they might have planted this little viral concept to sell the stupid things.
