I wonder why Lee Mack is trending... oh my.

Has anyone made a Not Going Auschwitz joke yet?

Admittedly, I'm a bit all over the shop of late, but this bought a tear to my eye this morning.  This is the world I want to live in...

You can't really blame Lee for that but the fucking History channel should surely have picked up on it....

Well...

I don’t really know what’s going on because when I saw ‘Lee Mack’ trending, it was already chock-full of the Nazi jokes, and not what the actual issue/story is? The closest I could find was the ‘88’ tattoo on the guy’s right cheek, which has been explained as commemorating the year that the bloke’s dad died.

That may or may not be true, but when has that stopped Twitter?

"88" is a common tattoo/symbol in far right circles, as code for "HH" (H being the 8th letter in the alphabet), as an abbreviation for "Heil Hitler".

He also has "23" and "16", which I've not encountered before, but as "WP" apparently mean "White Power", and has the word "Homegrown" tattooed. Not sure if there are more.

One of them would probably have scope for plausible deniability, accidentally ending up with a whole bunch of Nazi tattoos would be one hell of a coincidence.

 

Weirdly I was only having this conversation in the pub yesterday; apparently there had been a group of bikers in recently, with death's head patches on their jackets. My argument was that some symbols become divorced from their initial meaning, and consumed into another culture - if I see someone wearing an iron cross, they might just be a Motorhead fan. The bikers might have seen other bikers wearing that skull design and nicked it, without knowing its provenance. The same sort of thing could conceivably happen in tattoo culture. But there's a limit to plausible deniability.

Yeah, like shite is this all coincidence. Bet he’s got 14W somewhere on him but I’m sure it’s to commemorate the time I went undefeated in the 14 game season of the Coventry Irish Friday Night Darts League.

He's got the 14 as well, on his forehead, on the other point to the star to the '16'. He appears to have 20-04 (Hitler's birthday) on the other cheek to the 88 too.
