Arbeit Macht Deep-Fried

The newest in Nazi chic: a restaurant in Mumbai, India, called "Hitler's Cross."

A huge poster of the Nazi dictator, Adolf Hitler, adorned the inauguration function of the eating house, much to the surprise of the invitees.

The signage at the entrance also showed the Swastika encircled by the letter O in Cross. Bollywood actor Murli Sharma, who was among the guests at the inauguration, told TOI : "I found it amusing to see this poster of Hitler at the restaurant."

When you consider how many restaurants are opening in India this week and how this is the only one anyone will talk about, sure, that's amusing. And you have to love this plug from the owners.

"We are not promoting Hitler. But we want to tell people we are different in the way he was different."

Indeed, all of the chefs are failed painters who secretly romance their cousins.
