Sympathy For Der Fuhrer

Even Hitler had his down days. We know this because of a delicate bookmark (with his face on it, naturally) that his love interest, Eva Braun, presented to him during those lonesome, wistful days following the Battle of Stalingrad. She inscribed it with this tender message of love to assuage Der Fuhrer's broken heart:

"My Adolf, don't worry, it [the loss] is only an inconvenience that will not break your certainty of victory. My love for you will be eternal, as our Reich will be eternal. Always yours, Eva. 3-2-43."

An unromantic soul in Bellvue, WA named Christian Popescu coldly tried to sell it for $100,000 at a Starbucks last November. How he got it no one is sure. But an undercover Customs Agent put him away for 6 months in a cold Washington jail. Serves him right, the lout.
