PERTH, Australia — A Catholic school has apologized to parents offended by a boy pretending to be Adolf Hitler winning first place in his class at a school costume contest, the West Australian newspaper reported.

My Catholic Church has a costume contest every Halloween but it is known as an All Saints Day costume contest. Vampires and things like that are discouraged. In fact our Priest says to dress up like your favorite saint and if you can't think of one just put a bathrobe over your clothes and tell everybody you're Joseph. Even in a non-Catholic setting I wouldn't want my kid to dress up like Hitler. There's famous and then there's infamous.

"To me it's a mountain out of a molehill."

Yeah, well Hitler was all about making mountains out of mohels.

I don't think Hitler was all that fond of the Catholics. That kid's parents should be fined for being general idiots.

They don't tell you he beat out Jeffery Daumer, Caligula and the Marquis de Sade.

They should have had someone else dress up like Godwin's Law.

"He (Hitler) was a fairly famous person," he [the principal] told the West Australian.

Of course he is. He's all over YouTube, right?

Dressing up as the devil is fairly common for Halloween. So, some people think Hitler is worse that the the devil?
