And you thought Obama had a shitty name...

My good friends at the JTA are reporting that a Shop Rite refused to write "Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler" on a cake for an unfortunately named 3 year old New Jerseyan whose parents apparently have a really grim sense of humor. (Or -- more likely -- are really, really bad people.)

The parents didn't understand what the fuhrer -- uh, furor -- was all about.
"A name's a name," says the father. "The kid isn't going to grow up and do what [Hitler] did."

Well, let's hope...

Plus, the parents are defending themselves as unracist and un-Nazi because young master Adolf had several "mixed race" guests at the birthday party.

I have to say, you gotta feel bad for young Adolf. And you gotta wonder what life in the Campbell household is like (another child is named JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell). I savor the day when he says to his dad, "Uh, what were you thinking, exactly?"

One of my favorite parts about this story is the fact that even though the New Jersey Shop Rite refused to write this on the cake, nobody in Pennsylvania seemed to have any qualms about it.

Pennsylvania: You ought to be ashamed!
