Higher than in WWII? Worrying.
Apparently werewolves are roaming the streets of Dusseldorf eating Jewish people alive. The situation is just awful.
(jk, I was trying to imagine a worse situation than WW2 for German anti-semitism, pardon my poverty of imagination)

Proof checking rather than reading, but this story seems to fit here.

As sport emerges from lockdown, Australian NRL fans were encouraged to upload photos of themselves for $22 to be turned into cardboard cut-outs, which would populate the stands and supposedly give an air of normality to the stadium during matches.

Nice idea - but some one thought it would be a hoot to upload a pic of Adolf Hitler.
Another submitted murdering "Doctor Death" Harold Shipman.

These notorious characters were dutifully made into life-size cut-outs and given their place in the stand:

Oh man, that reminds me of that Engrish site... Where I laugh until I puke.

The "Chinese Friends" invasion of Amazon has resulted in some amusing product descriptions!
Why would women with wide teeth need special hair-clips?

Chinese Friends gave me another chuckle just now, when I was looking for a pet-hair remover on Amazon.
Blimey! Those pets are getting clever!

The BBC reporting on RAF "Tycoon" aircraft intercepting a Russian Bear. They do it twice, once in the article and once on the front page.

However the Tycoons have temporarily relocated from their base at RAF Lossiemouth while part of a runway is resurfaced.
