Historians studying the minutes of secret meetings of world war 2 Nazis have discovered that most meetings started off amiably enough, with members pointing out that they were all Nazis, but quickly degenerated into debates about telephones, wind farms and congestion charging.

One translation went as follows:
Adolf Hitler: "Hi Herman, still a Nazi?"
Herman Himmler: "Of course; I just love doing evil things for crackpot reasons. And you?"
AH: "Ooh yes, being a crazy dictator really works for me. But speaking of crackpot, have you seen the plan to introduce a charge for driving through Berlin?"
HH: "For the enemy? That makes sense."
AH: "No! For everyone - it is madness."
HH: "But it will reduce traffic in the city; is this not a good thing?"
AH: "Well yes, I see your point - so we are all in agreement."
Isn't there some kind of variant of Godwin's Law which states that any on-line discussion of Adolf Hitler or Nazi atrocitites always, sooner ot later, reverts to a statement relating to traffic wardens?
@apepper : excellent.
And I think Titus has spotted the joke too.
Not quite - I rarely come across any reference to Nazis or Hitler in discussions about 'phones. Why 'phones? You're distorting what I said - you're as bad as Goebbels.
