A man in his 70s who owns a owns a house in Port Tenant, Swansea (in Wales), has been left bewildered as hundreds of thousands of people have shared an image of his property on Twitter.
Why? Because it bears a striking resemblance to Adolf Hitler.
Judge for yourself.
Explains The Daily Telegraph:
The slanted roof was said to resemble the Hitler fringe, the door lintel was the moustache and the small top windows were seen as the dictator’s piercing eyes.
(On a side note – I love Jimmy, but that typo is unforgivable.)
“I walk past the house all the time, but I had never noticed the Hitler likeness before,” says Charli, “But then, at the weekend, I was in the car with my boyfriend and we were stuck in traffic and I just said to him, ‘That house looks like Hitler.’ We both laughed. I took a picture and posted it on Twitter. It was picked up by Jimmy Carr. Now everyone is talking about it!”
The owner of the house – which despite other reports isn’t to be found ‘third on the Reich’ – claims to not even have heard of Twitter.
Neighbour Lyn Thomas said, “I can see a resemblance now. I’ve lived here for two years but have never noticed anything before. I don’t know why it would be designed in such a way. It is uncanny.”
