This didn't take long: Nazi waxwork beheaded

Merlin Entertainments Group, who acquired Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, as part of their Tussauds Group purchase last year, decided to open their newest wax museum this month in Berlin.

Despite the fact that Nazi symbols are banned in Germany, the company decided to create publicity for the opening by featuring a controversial "Hitler in the bunker"exhibition.

"We are portraying the history of Germany we could hardly have left him out... we want to show the reality. said Madame Tussauds

Yesterday just hours after the new attraction opened, a 41 year old man tore it's head off. He was taken into custody.

Personally I really dislike wax museums, I find it eerie to look at semi-lifelike depictions of dead people. I guess I've been to too many funerals.

However this new interactivity option just might work for Merlin. They could just make a whack of spare heads. Visitors could then take turns at ripping the heads off their favorite "most despicable human" in history. 

Hey they have a George W. Bush in all eight of their locations.

And they could raise the fees, it's anything for a buck, right.

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
