hitler jokes + the australian election

by anzya

I’m not sure why Downfall parodies are so popular, or why funny things are even funnier when Hitler is saying them…  or why Inglorious Basterds was such a hit. But I do think that the wise Sarah Silverman was onto something when she tweeted (though I’m not usually in the habit of quoting tweets, I’m gonna make an exception here…) the other day: “I joke about 9/11 & the holocaust because I can’t stop thinking about 9/11 &the holocaust”.

Anyway, instead of letting me bore  you with cerebral explanations of what makes humour, well, humour, you should just check this out… I’ve seen a few of the Downfall parodies around, but this is the funniest by far…
