Although a little late to the discussion, I
enjoyed it very much. I am not sure to which side
I should lean - I can see the humor in it, but
also think it is not funny at all and would
support Charles Ess.
Quite frankly, I found it boring to use Hitler
again - and I can indeed understand the
"original", which was a dramatic performance in
the first place - then again what was Hilter's?
Anyway, I kept thinking, if the following does
also qualify as meme
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sK6VySzddPY - it
is in German, over an original Hitler. The source
is a routine by a German comedien - see here:
Is it as funny, or by using the original image,
less so? It is actually rediculing Hitler, as the
story told is about a leasing contract for a car
and the subtones are much sharper than in the
other memes I have seen.
Anyway, I wanted to share this - have fun those
of you, who can understand German...
