Wunder-Bar: Inside The Adolph Hitler Pub

by | 9th, November 2007

“HEIL HAVE A PINT,” says the Daily Sport as it places a Winkle Picker within The John Masefield public house, Merseyside. Or The Adolf – “because its sign bears an uncanny resemblance to the Nazi leader.”

Masefield’s dark hair, slide-rule parting and neat moustache are of a fashion favoured by the German leader. And, as Sport readers know, it was Masefield who wrote The Death Rooms.

Let it not pass unsaid that former British Poet Laureate John Masefield was not Adolph Hitler. Mr Masefield’s remains are housed in Poets’ Corner at Westminster Abbey.

Mr Hitler’s poetry Ode to A Sponge never achieved the prominence he felt it so richly deserved. He died a bitter man.
