The papers are writing today about Adolf Hitler’s sense of humor. The DailyTelegraph writes:
The dictator would often break from the serious nature of waging his campaign to “pull the legs” of his entourage of generals and hangers on.
His favourite victim was the Luftwaffe chief Herman Goering, who was notoriously fond of awarding himself medals and decorations.
Hitler recounted how Mrs Goering found her husband waving a baton over his underwear in the bedroom and asked him what he was doing.
“He replied: “I am promoting my underpants to OVERpants”", Hitler then joked.
Hitler was said to be so proud of his joke that he had medals made from gold and silver paper for Goering to wear on his pyjamas.
Daily Telegraph describes Hitler’s sense of humors as “bad”, Finnish tabloids as “weird”. But hey, imagine working with Herman Göring
Herr Göring was just begging for it…
