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.

Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.


That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
