Mein Camp

Someone's Dictating Terms

Owners of a flagship new pub in the UK may have to ditch its sign - because the face on it looks like Adolf Hitler. It is supposed to depict poet John Masefield but locals reckon it is a dead ringer for the Nazi dictator and have already started called the pub "The Adolf". The pub is dedicated to former poet laureate Masefield due to his local roots and the sign is based on a picture of Masefield when he had a "toothbrush" moustache like Hitler's. Manager Seanie Walsh said: "We must admit he does look a bit like Hitler on the sign, but that didn't occur to us until after we put it up.''
