No Birthday Cake for Li’l Adolf Hitler

Can you imagine your fury if you ordered your kid a birthday cake and the bakery refused to write your three-year-old’s name on it? Readers might be thinking, “The bastards!” right about now. But maybe you should know one more thing: The tot’s name is Adolf Hitler.

Boing Boing has the details, writing, “Heath and Deborah Campbell of Greenwich, Pennsylvania are angry that the ShopRite supermarket refused to spell out their 3-year-old son’s name in frosting on his birthday cake. His name is Adolf Hitler Campbell. Poor kid. An area Wal-Mart later agreed to decorate the cake. Others who read the story in a local paper were apparently upset with Heath Campbell about choosing that name for his child. That made him even angrier.”

Um, yeah. Because someone who names his kid Adolf Hitler is bound to be sensitive.
