I think I mentioned it once...

Witnessed at Kingston markets on Sunday morning - small girl, probably 5 at the most, goose stepping, with her finger held up to her upper lip to form a Hitler moustache.

Girl's Mother: [in an angry whisper] Vanessa! Will you stop doing that!

I think Vanessa is discovering Channel 7's Saturday afternoon repeats of Fawlty Towers, don't you?

Unusually for a photo, that one captures the insanity of Basil's goose-stepping perfectly.

That's some pretty impressive leg flexibility for a man of his age and height.

Oh CSH, you've made my day. What a magnificent child Vanessa must be.

When I hear stories like that I almost wish I'd got round to having one before it was too late.

So this is what I have to look forward to eh?

No, honestly, this is pure gold.

Or maybe Vanessa saw Eurotrip, which also features a child in the background with a painted on Hitler mo', goose-stepping. The outtakes at the end even show the director/producer trying to teach the child how to do it properly. Hilarious.
