Hitler playing chess with Zippy

Hello Everyone,

This is about a fantastic photo that has just surfaced! You can read all about it at The Telegraph.

Guy Walters writes:

"Just as soon as I blog about iffy Hitler memorabilia, then along comes an exciting new find, unearthed by my friend Alex Morris. Discovered by his father when clearing out the family’s garage in Chelmsford, this picture is believed to be fantastically rare. Several ‘Historical Documents Experts’ from auction houses all over the world have declared the picture to be a genuine representation of the Führer playing chess in the green room after guest starring on Rainbow in October 1975. Sadly, no recordings of the episode survive... The picture will shortly be auctioned at Swallock’s Auction House, where it is expected to make £2,000,000,000,000 (plus 17% buyer’s premium)."

Even if this a spoof, we're enjoying it.
