US retailer JC Penney is doing a brisk trade in a designer kettle after someone noticed it bore a certain resemblance to Adolf Hitler. Over the weekend, a snap of a billboard ad for the "Michael Graves Design Bells and Whistles Stainless Steel Tea Kettle" popped up on Reddit. The offending kettle and Adolf Hitler Spot the …

This is so exciting, a new pet...
I see I'll have to work on toilet training you first...
