Was the chief guest's last name Gibson?

Look at these unbelievably ignorant and insensitive jokers - how crass can people get?

Hitler-themed restaurant

A huge poster of the Nazi dictator, Adolf Hitler, adorned the inauguration function of Hitler's Cross, much to the surprise of the invitees.

The signage at the entrance also showed the Swastika encircled by the letter O in Cross.

“We wanted to be different. This is one name that will stay in people’s minds,” owner Punit Shablok told Reuters. “We are not promoting Hitler. But we want to tell people we are different in the way he was different.”

!!!! For shame.

Polar bear anyone?

As a fan of bears - all kinds, I couldn't help showcasing this one.

Here's Coldilocks - a nice AP picture on CNN.
CNN.com: 'Coldilocks, a 25-year-old female polar bear, enjoys bits of fruit in a block of ice in the midday heat at the Philadelphia Zoo.'

I rarely miss bear stories on the net. Here are a few ursine escapades: =)

'Juan the Andean spectacled bear first paddled across a moat using a log for a raft, then scaled a wall. Finally he appeared to commandeer a bicycle, before zookeepers with brooms cornered him.' 'Sgt. Bill Heinck said the bear did try one can of Busch, but ignored the rest."He didn't like that (Busch) and consumed, as near as we can tell, about 36 cans of Rainier." ' 'It was a real-life version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears — only in reverse. A woman came home to find a young bear eating oatmeal in her kitchen. Three police officers who went to the home Thursday couldn't get the bear to budge, so authorities let the animal finish its meal.'
