Reddit has always been known as a breeding ground for off-beat humor. (See here, and here.)
But the latest fad to arise, created by Redditor CurryBanana, even has US questioning our laughter…or at least trying to suppress it.
In a statement to the Daily Dot, CurryBanana explained the concept:
It came from watching The Producers. During the performance of “Springtime for Hitler, ” we were thinking of ways to continue to mock the man. What would Hitler’s drag name be? Titler. It was summer, and we had extra time so r/titler was born.
People seemed to be taking for more than it is. I added the tag, Not intended to be Nazi porn, to prevent people from using it as a fetish subreddit. It’s a joke, a tasteless one, but still a joke.
Are YOU privvy to the joke? If so, scroll below for more “Titler.”
But if you think making fun of Hitler is anything new, check out this matchbook from the 1940s!
You strike the match on Hitler’s posterior!
And of course, if you’re still feeling a little bit irksome about laughing, just do what Drew Carey and his cast of Whose Line is it Anyway? did when a show producer tried to shut them down for making fun of Hitler. (Side WTF: Wayne Brady makes a Hitler with boobs joke in this clip from five years ago!)
