Is it just me or does one of the characters in this latest kit look like Hitler?  Maybe an appropriate alt history where he gets a more appropriate job as a baggage handler:

The baggage handler guy has a very unique looking moustache ...

I think people forget that Hitler's moustache was, actually, quite common amongst German ex-servicemen of WW1, as it allowed their gas masks to seal properly (unlike the long handle-bars preferred pre-/early-WW1). It was a distinct feature of his but was not unique to him, even before he came to power.

Yeah, I know it was a popular style but you have to admit he does resemble Herr Schicklgruber just a bit :smiley:

I think he does initially, but the more you look at him the more he doesn't ? At least to me, weird ?

The young lady holding the "o.k. to depart board" has a slightly odd looking expression as well.

I thought he looked more like Mr Hilter but it's hard to tell without Mr Bimmler in the picture.

More fodder for the conspiracy theory fanboys dumpster fire.  Hitler escapes!  Not by flying saucer (Haunabu) or Zepplin but disguised as a lowly train station baggage handler.

True, but it is amusing tho think about the potential re-roling...

Big call there.  Better than The Parrot Sketch?  What about The Funniest Joke In The World or Argument Clinic? My favourite, though it may not be a skit, is Four Yorkshiremen
