JC Penney Still Exists?: JC Penney Teapot Hitler Billboard

From geekology, his is the JC Penney billboard for a teapot (because teapots are a great choice for billboard advertisements) that, when blurred, kinda sorta looks like a characture Hitler. Of course, if you squint your eyes and shake your head hard enough, you can get anything to look like Hitler, which is exactly why I just tied my roommate to a chair and kicked him down the stairs. I think he's still down there moaning too if any of you want to come over and take a whack at him.
Thanks to BrianR and Krista, who were more surprised to learn JC Penney was still in business after deciding to stop printing those giant catalogs with all the bra models.

I think the unblurred picture looks more like cartoon Hitler than the blurred one. I wonder if somebody low on the totem pole pointed that out and was pooh-poohed.

That happened to me once. My boss was editing the next book in the Ronald Morgan series, about RM getting a dog named Lucky, and the working title was Ronald Morgan Gets Lucky. I told her what that meant and she waved me away like I was an idiot. I think I've told this story before.

Anyway, shortly afterwards the president of the division was all "What are we really calling this book?" amid a roomful of laughter and my boss had no idea what they were talking about.
