In Peru, Hitler hopes to return to power in a small town in the Andes, despite a threat from a detractor named Lennin.
Campaign slogans reading “Hitler returns” and “Hitler with the people” have appeared around the highland town of Yungar, where local politician Hitler Alba is seeking a new term as mayor.
“I’m the good Hitler,” Alba said on local broadcaster RPP.
Lennin begs to disagree:
Alba’s campaign this year came under attack by Lennin Vladimir Rodriguez Valverde, a resident of a neighboring district who tried to block Alba’s inscription as a candidate.
Electoral authorities rejected the request last week, allowing Hitler to appear on voting cards for the Oct. 7 elections.
Peruvian parents are apparently fond of otherwise WTF names:
Last year an Osama Vinladen was named to Peru’s national juvenile football team.
But of course.
