Nazi Chic Is A Thing In Thailand.

There’s a certain craze sweeping through Thailand at present and it’s at it’s strongest with teenagers in the country, it’s called Nazi Chic.

T-shirts and posters featuring Hitler as a Little Big Planet ‘Sackboy’, a Hitlerfied Ronald McDonald and various other pop culture symbols which have been given the full Nazi treatment are for sale throughout many shops and boutiques in Bangkok. Younger local kids are apparently leading the craze with many wearing t-shirts emblazoned with Swastikas and cartoon versions of Hitler’s face and it’s been reported that in September of last year a group of students at a school showed up dressed in full Nazi uniform for a Sports Day. Of course there may be a reason for this craze and as one commentator explained on the Daily Mail’s website:

As a character – a character like Mickey Mouse, Napoleon, or Hello Kitty – Hitler is a very distinctive one, with that scowl, caterpillar moustache, and hairlick. And he’s not just a grinning nonentity type character like Mickey or Hello Kitty – he has a presence. This character is well known worldwide, and moreover is not copyrighted. This new Thai fashion just piggybacks off that. They have not had it drummed into them from birth that Hitler was the worst man in the world, worse than the devil; they really know rather little about him. Also the Thai view of the world is not dualistic, dividing the whole universe into black and white. They understand that there is good and bad mixed in every impermanent thing. That’s why they see nothing wrong with using the image. A bit like the way we see Napoleon today – yet in the nineteenth century he was the devil incarnate.

WTF Has Happened To Jodie Marsh?

The answer would have to be weight training and an industrial tin of creosote. Jodie Marsh famous for having her breasts enlarged to the size of two pre-war Zeppelins has apparently left her glamour girl career behind for the world of female body building.

The 32 year-old entered the Natural Physique Association (NPA) Mike Williams Classic and Pro-Am Bodybuilding Championships last month and looked like she was close to epidermal suffocation. The Daily Mail reports that she’s been on a strict diet and exercise routine constructed by personal fitness trainer Tim Sharp, who recently tweeted a picture of the two with the trophy Marsh lifted for finishing fifth in the competition.

This dramatic transformation has obviously attracted the attention of the tabloids and to be fair some pretty nasty comments have been made about Marsh probably by fat, balding desk jockeys who only ever break sweat when they free their chocolate hostages. But with the success she achieved in this competition Marsh is now continuing her training and setting her sights on the finals next year. Good luck to her.
