F.A.Q.: Hitler teapot

News

Q: Does a Hitler teapot exist?

A: Yes, I am afraid the existence of a Hitler teapot entered my reality at approximately 4pm yesterday. 1600 if you're in the military.

Q: Why would someone make a Hitler teapot?

A: You know, that's a great question and one that I don't have an easy answer for. Then again, I bought a Chairman Mao watch when I was in China. I can only assume that someone in the world has Mussolini underpants.

Q: Who on earth would buy a Hitler teapot?

A: Nazis are the first folks who come to mind. But, to be honest I've read a slew of books about them and World War II in general and I've never once gotten the impression they were big tea drinkers. Schnapps, yes. Darjeeling, nein.

Q: How would you react to being served from a Hitler teapot?

A: There's not a lot of precedent for being served from a Hitler teapot so I'm not sure what the etiquette would be. In all probability I would make several assumptions about the host's sanity and taste but try to stay civil. However, I'd be forced to say something if the sugar cubes were shaped like swastikas.
