In the fashion episode, the buzzer was sounded for saying that Hitler had only one ball.

Actually, turns out that the old rhyme about Hitler is actually quite possibly true.
By coincidence I read it in either the New Scientist or the Fortean Times, can't remember which, so I found this to show my friend:

Refund those points! =)

The question asked was "Which dictator definitely only had one ball?"

The link you post is The Telegraph quoting The Sun, quoting a document that supposedly records a conversation involving a man who supposedly treated Hitler at the Somme some 45 or 50 years before the conversation took place.

I don't think that counts as "definitely".

Fair point, fine then the buzzer still stands.
But he didn't definitely not have only one ball. I didnt say definately, I said "quite possibly". =)

Oh I'm with you that Hitler may well have been unibollocked. To be honest, I rather want him to have been, then I can imagine him in his office some time in 1939/40...

Aide: "Mein Fuhrer, ve haff some bad news."
Hitler: "What is it?"
Aide: "Ze Englanders haff somehow discovered that you only haff one ball."
Hitler: "Noooooooo..."

But that might be just me.

I expect Hitler and his aides would have spoken in German, not some 'comedy' German-accented English.

Sorry to shatter your illusions.

:P

Lies. Everyone knows Hitler spoke in English with a mock-German accent. It happens in films, it must be true.

Yeah, and it doesn't even sound funny in German =P

"Mein Führer, ich habe schlechte Nachrichten"
"Was ist denn?"
"Die Engländer haben irgendwie erfahren, dass Sie nur einen Hoden haben."
"Neeeiiii~n..."

Actually, I believe that the story may be false.

This leads to one big problem. Which source would you rather believe? The Sun or the Daily Mail?

I like the way they felt the need to **** the word ball - I guess next it'll be necessary to censor all those children's books - B is for B***

*** the other newspapers managed to print the offending word in full, without their readers f***ing off their chairs with shock. Perhaps if I were to c*** the Daily M*i* and complain about it, it would hasten that paper's demise. Send it to the w***, in fact. I wonder if I sh*** be asked to be a p***bearer at its funer**, although they may want people t***er than me.

Of course, if someone adverstised "Full Laboratory services" this would not only be an example of using the offending word but of using it in a satanic, reversed way. Thank goodness we have the Wail to stand up for our righteous values.

Actual quote from a documentary on propaganda:

"Photographs of Hitler modeling Lederhosen were rapidly withdrawn"

As he didn't leave any offspring (that I am aware of) it seems that however many he had, they were purely decorative. Of course, you would have to apply to Mrs Hitler nee Braun for details regarding the latter.
