"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

More From The Goebbels Archive

Wow, people can really deceive themselves:

...National Socialist Germany feels itself the leader of the entire civilized world. It would cease to exist were we to give up before the enemy's assault. We are God's instrument today, fulfilling a great historical mission. It cannot be postponed. We must do it, or humanity will collapse. We all know this. This is a struggle between light and dark, between truth and falsehood, between true humanity and inhuman barbarism. Germany carries the banner. All the oppressed and tortured peoples look to us in hope, because they expect from us alone a new order and the salvation of the world.

--Joseph Goebbels, January 2, 1944

Fortunately, of course, when OUR pundits say stuff like this it's really true!

First it was Rudolf Hess. ("Our Kampf" dication)
Now we're quoting Goebbels (at least, thank Wotan, not from one of his novels)

We're not embarking on a nostalgia trip, are we?

Sie...I mean, see you at the Bundt party.
