Hitler's Toilet Resides in a N.J. Auto-Repair Shop
[NEWSFEED.TIME] As dinner-party conversation goes, owning Adolf Hitler's toilet is hardly a bad place to start.
"Pass the ham, please? By the way, darling, I pooped in Hitler's crapper today!"
"Really, Reggie? Oh, what was it like? More potatoes?"
"Yes, thank you. When I got up I felt... empty."
An accidental antiques collector took possession of the dictator's porcelain privy when he purchased an auto-repair shop in Florence, N.J., almost two decades ago, reports Tablet magazine.
"Nice place, for an auto repair shop. Does the crapper come with it?"
"I'll throw it in for boot if you want."
The toilet was originally installed on Hitler's yacht, the 400-500ft Aviso Grille, which was also the very place where Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz first announced the Führer's death on May 1, 1945.
"Reggie! You mean that Dönitz was actually sitting on that very throne when he signed the surrender?"
"Indeed, m'dear. You can tell, y'know. The seat was down."
"[Hitler] wanted to ride it down the Thames in London
"Mein Führer! Das motör hat auf dem Kräpper gefallen!"
and go live in Windsor Palace when he invaded," the latrine's owner, Greg Kohfeldt, told Tablet. The ship boasted a crew of 245 and a private room for Eva Braun; it was one of the largest private vessels in the world at the time.
Although some may question the commode's authenticity, plenty of evidence points to this being the real deal. A sink from the same ship bears the maker's stamps and faucets in the "Blackletter" font favored by the regime.
... and since that particular unreadable font would be used on no one's potty but der Fuehrer's that confirms it.
