Not the fake ad

If you read The Ann Arbor Observer and like to search for the fake ads they run every month, here's a tip. It isn't the one advertising a book called Many Believable Lies, written by some hack named McConnell. That one's real.

I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it.

Visualize John Cleese in his role as Basil Fawlty, Director of Customer Satisfaction at Fawlty Towers, doing his Hitler imitation for a bunch of visiting Germans. Then read this piece about L. Brooks Patterson, doing his version.

The man is -- unique. That's all I can say. I especially like the picture of him using a comb to simulate a Hitler mustache.

Ha! You thought I was making that up! Made you look!
