Does this Teapot Look Like Hitler?
I’m a little teapot, short and mustached? A JC Penney billboard in Culver City, Calif. is being criticized for the teapot it advertises — which some have pointed out strikes a strong resemblance to Adolf Hitler.
The $40 Michael Graves-designed tea kettle sparked Internet debate on Tuesday, prompting a Twitter response from JC Penney, which declared the kitchen tool’s resemblance to Hitler “completely unintentional.”

What do you think? Would you have seen the teapot’s resemblance to Hitler without it being pointed out to you?
.@jcpenney A Hitler teapot?? I was willing to look past the fact that your full name is “JEWS COVET Pennies,” but this is TOO MUCH.
