Do you have any idea how hard it is to cut the little swastikas into the gingerbread men?

Well, this is a first.

*Tosses a "r" up to His Blogness*

McGuckin said he chose the subject to provoke thought, not to offend.

"I can differentiate between real Nazis and that the atrocities they performed compared to these little gingerbread men, but I guess some people can't," said McGuckin, 50.

Um, yes, I can differentiate them too, but exactly what other thoughts besides atrocities, brutality and hate might one expect to provoke when depicting Nazis? How many philanthropic, gentle and saintly Nazis has he encountered in either real life, in history, or in media imagery?

This guy is a phony of the worst kind, looking to get himself a name through shock. I don't see him as a Nazi himself, just a pathetic, ignorant opportunist.

/unfunny hot button rant

Thanks in advance for the gumballs, all.

*snork* @ AFKAT

So what's their warm-up act, the Donut Communists?

No gingerbead for YOU!

i find the thought of nazis being shoved into an oven to be somewhat appropriate.

SNORK @ Mahatma Kane Jeeves. First thing I thought of,too!

*snork* @ MKJ and cg

How about croissant shaped suicide bombers?

Ok, this has nothing to do with the Gingerbread Nazis, but I just got an early Christmas gift. I'm graduating with my masters from UM in December, and I just found out that you're speaking at my graduation, Dave!!! YESSSSSS!!!!!!

Can't wait to hear you speak!

u rule crossgirl!

"He's gone way overboard this time"
I wonder what he made before that wasn't as overboard?
Little snowmen in Klan robes, maybe?

I suppose Gingerbread Nazis are not gonna be the top cookies of the Holday Season?

Okay, so gingerbread nazis are allowed to be displayed, but here in Colorado a lady is being forced to take down her Christmas wreath because it is shaped like a peace sign. Believe it or not, someone thought it might be "Satanic".

Well, nothing says Christmas like Satan.

No... drat. Santa. Never mind.

I saw that. Damned wreath nazis.

Pliers on noses and whiskers on fire
bear trap chastity belts that cool your desire
little mewling kittens tied up with string
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored pustules and crisp little poodles
cookies en regalia and schnauzer with noodles
Wild geese that fly with anchors on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses that give forty lashes
hot caustic chemicals on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white splinters jabbed into your fing- ers
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

cream colored pustules WBAGNF something.

*Ponder and Head Scratch* @ mud

I do not like gingerbread (or gingerbead) Nazis, but I really like the name McGuckin. It's the "uck" part. Makes me giggle.

i vill goosestep und march until your leg's shot,see
you can't catch me, ich bin der Gingerbread Nazi!

Girls in white dresses that give forty lashes

Why do I suspect that DPC might actually agree with this part of the song?

And mud... that was disturbing. In a snorkable sort of way, but still.

And congrats, Catherine!

*snorks* at mud's "crisp little poodles" big ole *SNORKS* for insom's new bed time story. i always found that tale a bit disturbing anyway.

Congrads Catherine we all knew you could do it!!!!

Gingerbread Nazis. The perfect snack when you're hungry for power.

...prompting the store owner to demand the artwork be removed.

Hmmm... That store owner must be enjoying the publicity a little bit because you'd think that, as the store owner he could take a couple cookies out of his window at any time!

Maybe the Gingerbread Nazis should just be beheaded, leaving the bodies on display, and the heads served to...(any volunteers?)

First thought is that ain't beauty and it ain't art. But free speech is also a precious thing, and we need to be cautious about losing it.

I was told once that a peace sign is an upside down broken cross, an anti-Christ symbol. But to most of the people who use it, it does not stand for anything like that.

Again I say we need to guard free speech, not just our own, but that of others. And isn't it in the eye of the beholder?

Sorry, not funny, but heartfelt. I still, perhaps naively, believe the person who said "I do not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." Something like that. Have we lost that somewhere sinc 9/11? Or before...

Hanna, I think that was Patrick Henry who said it.

Hanna, I heard that "broken cross" explanation when I was a kid. Fortunately, it's not true. It's formed from the semaphore (flag waving) letters for N and D which stand for Nuclear Disarmament.

thanks for linking that scott. peace.

Hanna, if I'm the store owner and I let you put your "speech" in my window, I also have a right to tell you to take it down. I'm not squelching your right to free speech, I'm excercising my rights as a property owner. Let the "artist" in question put his trash in his own windows. He has a right to "say" it or "display" it, but not in *my* window.

That said, reading the account of what was in last year's "artistic" disply, the store owner obviously isn't averse to the publicity.

The description of the suicidal snowman made me realize: 'tis the season!

Hey, maybe he could send some to the Gubernator out here in Kahleefohneeyah. Arnie would probably get some yuks out of that. >;-(
