    People in Switzerland out taking coffee were surprised to find pictures of dictators Hitler and Mussolini adorning the little plastic pots of creamer served with it, recently.

    Migros, the supermarket and restaurant company that supplied them, expressed total surprise and claimed they hadn't noticed. They blamed another company, Karo-Versand, which supplied the creamer to them. Executive of Karo-Versand, Peter Waelchi, said there was no problem with the images - they were just part of a series featuring old cigar brands.

    Migros promptly cut all business ties with the company, so maybe things have soured a little for Waelchi now.

    ok......

    Hitler was a rabid anti-smoker -- after he had reformed his ways and gave up the habit -- so the fact that his face was used as a cigar band is just too ironic

    the Nazis were renowned for their Anti-tobacco campaign ((amazing --huh))
