Hitler Beheaded

A man was arrested for beheading Hitler... at a controversial new exhibit at Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum.

Before the exhibit opened, organizers surveyed tourists and locals and found they wanted to see a Hitler exhibit. But within hours of its opening, the second viewer of the exhibit tore the head off the waxwork.

There are conflicting reports, with one suggesting a security guard tried to stop the man, and another saying he simply walked behind the desk and tore the dummy in two before wrestling with security. At any rate, the exhibit was ruined.

Tussaud's organizers logically explained there is no way they can depict Germany's history without depicting Hitler. Even the general secretary of the Central Council of Jews in Germany agreed the exhibit, if done tastefully, was important.
