"We do recognise there were some horrendous things done and if people are not seeing it as lampooning, we are dealing with a slightly different animal and we will back down."
Last year, Hell's condom mailout to promote its Lust pizza attracted 685 complaints, and the ASA ruled it had breached standards of decency and social responsibility.

"Nazis are a-holes. Although they're cute when they're little, I will give them that. They're sooo cute. Why can't they stay small?"From the article:
In his cut-down SS uniform, Alex Kurzem made a perfect mascot. Hitler's high command gave him a rifle and he was pictured in newsreels as "the Reich's youngest Nazi". They even paraded the six-year-old before Adolf Hitler, who hailed him as an upstanding example to German youth. But the boy soldier had a secret that he kept for more than 60 years - he was Jewish. Today Mr Kurzem lives in Melbourne, Australia, and has told his amazing story in a book The Mascot, which will stun any former Nazis still alive. "They gave me little jobs to do, polishing shoes or lighting a fire," he said yesterday. "They thought I was a Russian orphan."
His parents had been killed when Germans invaded their village in Belarussia and Alex survived for months by begging for food. Eventually he was found by Latvian police who became part of the SS. He remembers executions and expecting to be one of the victims. But a soldier took him around to the back of the local school and told him: "Look, I don't want to kill you but I can't leave you here. I will take you with me and tell the other soldiers that you are a Russian orphan." Alex kept his secret and was later "adopted" by the SS. In 1944, with defeat inevitable, the Nazis sent him to live with a Latvian family. As a teenager he made his way to Australia where he married and had two children. But only now, at 71, has he told anyone his story.

The games, which include one where points are awarded for bombing British cities, will be auctioned on Thursday.
The unusual pastimes were created during the Second World War for youngsters to practice playing at being German leader Adolf Hitler.
Four games will be auctioned by Mullock’s Auctioneers at Ludlow Racecourse. They are all based on bombing British cities or blowing up shipping.
Richard Westwood-Brookes, historical documents expert, said: “Perhaps the most amazing of the group is ‘Bomber over England’ which dates from 1940 is a kind of table top ‘bagatelle’ - or pinball - style game featuring a map of the UK, northern France, Belgium and Holland, with part of Germany, and various holes in the board each assigned with a points total.
“You got 30 points for hitting Hull, 60 points for hitting Aberdeen, only 40 points for Liverpool, 50 points for Birmingham and of course 100 points for London.”

A bottle of champagne reputed to have come from Adolf Hitler's personal wine cellar fetched nearly £2,000 at auction today. The bottle was only expected to fetch around £500 but interest from telephone bidders across Europe pushed up the cost. In the end, the bottle was snapped up by a Swedish buyer for £1,688 at Charterhouse auctioneers in Sherborne, Dorset.
However, it is unlikely the new owner will be celebrating his new purchase by cracking open the champagne. Charterhouse valuer Chris Copson said: "There was a rumour that some of the bottles of champagne had been poisoned by injecting through the cork which might be why the soldier never actually drank it. "Champagne doesn't particularly age well anyway, but in light of that information I would say it's extremely unlikely that anyone would want to drink it anyway."

Val Kilmer has pulled out of playing Adolf Hitler in a film focusing on the German dictator after reportedly getting 'cold feet' about being involved in the project.
The Kiss Kiss Bang Bang star had said yes to the part for comic movie Hebrew Hammer 2: Hammer Versus Hitler, but then mysteriously refused to go ahead with it.
A source told the New York Post: "Val was supposed to be in the film but he must have just got cold feet because he's pulled out."
Adam Goldberg, who played an Orthodox Jewish action hero in the first film will reprise his role in the sequel, which will mock Mel Gibson's anti-Jewish rant last year.

That makes this champagne 70 years old and it could even have been poisoned via injections through the cork as the man was hated big time. The auction is set for the 17th of August and this should get a big sale as it is a piece of history (maybe not our best moment in history).
The auction will take place at Charterhouse auctioneers in Sherborne, Dorset, UK.
An odd one... even for a porno.
It seems to be put together with several shootings on the same sets with different casts, made over time. (The sets are quite good for a cheapo porno, BTW.) Story concerns 3 Allied agents (1 bearded male, 2 females in fatigues) who parachute into North Africa and land in the middle of a desert Nazi installation and are taken prisoner for some S&M and hardcore sex fun and games.
SEE Angelique Pettyjohn hamming it up as a sadistic Nazi bitch. She plays only with the girls, implying she is a lesbian, which makes her pay-back rape by the guy while jackknifed over a table that much more exciting!
SEE the older guy who played the Nazi kommandant in LOVE CAMP 7 reprise his role.
HEAR the befuddled actress mispronounce "Algiers" repeatedly!
SEE the exciting (?) outdoor scenes (shot in the California desert?) as the filmmakers set off dynamite to simulate bombs.
SEE the other Nazi bitch... a barfy crone in jackboots who reminded this viewer of former Senator Phil Gram. (gag!)
It's supposed to be an action-adventure, but it is unintentionally hilarious in many places! Get out some beer and enjoy yourself!
