There were subtitles that didn't match with the German at all (and I didn't even understand most of it). The subtitles themselves weren't funny. I'm guessing Hitler being angry was supposed to be funny?
You must have a lot of friends.

Unlike you, most people don't count their friends by the metric ton.

Lots of people just talk a lot of shit online, and make ridiculous jokes about very serious things. I told my grandfather about Inglorious Basterds (a movie I loved) and he just blinked a few times and said "that's not what happened, and that's not how it [WW2] ended." It's not that he doesn't have a sense of humor - he does. It's that there are things that, to some people, can never, ever be funny for any reason. People online don't give a shit about that because they're all keyboard warriors and/or have never been checked in real life.

Moo, I certainly respect what lies behind your viewpoint. But isn't it presumptuous to assume that someone might not have a comparable background and just have a different way of processing/dealing with it? Take the Mel Brooks quote Manton mentioned -- I don't think it can be said that Brooks only developed that attitude because the Holocaust had no personal relevance for him.
