WTF?!?! Adolf Hitler?

There are just some things that make you ask that type of question.

The seriously whacked news that makes you wonder what the fuck was that person thinking?

Such as The Reincarnation of Adolf Hitler.

Yes, you read that right.

Heath and Deborah Campbell have actually named their blonde-haired blue-eyed three-year-old son Adolf Hitler Campbell and are currently having a hissy fit because a store refused to decorate a cake with the child’s name on top. In a previous year they wanted the cake to have a swastika on it. Their other children are JoceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell (2 yrs in a few months) and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell (age 2 in April).

Honszlynn Hinler is named for Heinrich Himmler, the man in charge of the concentration (death) camps and head of the SS.

Apparently Heath Campbell said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because “no one else in the world would have that name”. NO SHIT SHERLOCK!

And he “sounds surprised” by all the controversy the dispute has generated.

But then again he apparently doesn’t believe the Holocaust took place.

Now, I’m sorry to say, but there are some really stupid kid names out there, that other then being ridiculous and a future embarrassment to the child, are nonetheless relatively harmless. These include:

Pilot Inspektor (Jason Lee’s son)
Fifi Trixibell (Bob Geldof’s daughter)
Audio Science (Shannyn Sossamon’s child, sex unknown)

And lest we forget, the apparently zoned Frank Zappa and his three Zapp-ettes also known as Dweezil, Moon Unit, and Diva Muffin.

Then there are the children who have future lawsuits against their parents waiting, such as Pixie Frou-Frou and Toilet (pronounced Twa-lay). Yeah, right. SURE it’s pronounced twa-lay, yep, everyone calls her that.

And deserving of their own special mention:

Tulula Does The Hula From Hawaii
Number 16 Bus Shelter
Twins – Benson and Hedges and Fish and Chips.

A judge in New Zealand in the Talula case said the parents of the nine-year-old had shown very poor judgment. “It makes a fool of the child and sets her up with a social disability and handicap.”

Now, while all that may have been somewhat cringe-worthy to read, there are those names that are just a flat out no-no. Should not be used, not if you have a shred of decency in your soul for your child. Just an inkling of how cruel children (and adults) can be. Just one drop of compassion for what you are PURPOSEFULLY setting up.

Some of those infamous names (at least in this country), include:

Ted – if your last name is Bundy.

Jeffrey – if your last name is Dahmer.

Joseph – if last name is Stalin.

Mao Tse Tung – pretty much anywhere.



Coming in at number two on the NO FUCKING WAY list is, not surprisingly:

Bin Laden

But, THE number one name, the absolutely don’t use it EVER name, has got to be:

Adolf Hitler.

If this is not one of the most WHAT THE FUCK moments out there, I’ll have to search the news more.

This sure is my WTF of the day. Maybe the week.

This name is not embarrassing, or silly, or ridiculous, or anything as benign as that.

It’s downright cruel.

It “makes a fool of the child and sets her up with a social disability and handicap.”

It’s wrong.

What do you think?
