And now for something completely different...

So everyone knows I spend way too much time reading World War II books, and like to foist myself off as a Wehrmacht sympathizer, and am famous for saying "Fascism is the best form of government if you're in the ruling circle" (which is patently true).

So in my disdain from politics today, I'm listening to Howard Stern's replay on Sirius radio, and they briefly discuss in the news the Giants "Meadowlands" stadium naming rights.

A little backstory:
Allianz, the front-runner to secure the new stadium's naming rights, is an insurance and financial services company founded in Berlin in 1890 that moved to Munich in 1949 and had ties to Nazi Germany. Its CEO at the time, Kurt Schmitt, was Adolf Hitler's economics minister. It was the insurer of the Auschwitz death camp's facilities and personnel.
So Howard Stern, without missing a beat says:
"Insuring Auschwitz? What'd they insure it for, liability?"

And his sidekick, Artie Lange without missing a beat interjects:
"No, fire"

I choked on my french fries I laughed so hard I gave myself a headache.
"self-aggrandizing jackass" - it says it right on the label
