Get some of the Fuhrer's hair online

Goering, goering, gone

A German Web site specialising in Nazi memorabilia has put some of Hitler's barnet* up for auction - at £700 a hair!

The woman the runs the minimalist site Carinhall.com, Pamela Korner, is rather pleased with her acquisition. Unfortunately, we had to use online translation software to find out what the hell was going on (it's all in German).

Apparently, Hitler got a bit freaked by the weird cults building up around him and so out-weirded them by insisting his hair was destroyed immediately after it was cut off. However a barber came upon the cunning plan of dampening the sole of his shoe and managing to pick up a few follicles of the crazed dictator. According to Pamela, DNA tests have proved 100 per cent that she has Adolf's hair.

Is it just us or is this absolutely nuts? This is hair for chrissakes. Tiny, tiny bits of it. Spend the money on a pyschiatrist - there's a nice Jewish one just round the corner from us. ®

* For our America readers, "barnet" is Cockney rhyming slang for hair (as in Barnet Fair).
