    Man named after Adolf Hitler wins local election in Namibia

    A Namibian politician named after Adolf Hitler says he has no plans for world domination after winning a sweeping victory in local elections.

    Adolf Hitler Uunona was elected last week as councillor for the Ompundja constituency.

    In an interview with German newspaper Bild, he insisted he had "nothing to do" with Nazi ideology.

    Adolf, like other Germanic first names, is not uncommon in the country, which was once a German colony.

    He was elected for the ruling Swapo party, which led the campaign against colonial and white-minority rule.

    Mr Uunona admitted that his father had named him after the Nazi leader, but said "he probably didn't understand what Adolf Hitler stood for".

    It made me think of you when I saw that. I said to myself, "This is exactly the kind of thing NAP would be doing to his cat!"

    It's hard for me to imagine I ever made it into a system like this. It's a humor skit but damned if it isn't close to the truth. It was hard for me to take:

    In the future I hope they never edit these gems out. Bloopers are the best!

    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)
