The Sense of Humor of Two Famous People
Hitler “Between 1939 and 1945, the SS, assisted by collaborationist governments and recruits from occupied countries, were responsible for the deaths of eleven to fourteen million people” -- Wikipedia
Hitler’s Sense of Humor Hitler's valet, Heinz Linge, recalled Hitler's bizarre sense of humour: "He would laugh at Eva Braun's bright red lipstick on a dinner napkin and then say, 'During wartime lipstick is produced out of dead bodies.'"
Nelson Mandela Savior of South Africa
Mandela’s Sense of Humor The Democratic Alliance’s Tony Leon recalled an exchange in Parliament when Mandela referred to the Democratic Alliance as a Mickey Mouse political party. Leon responded by calling Mandela’s African National Congress a Goofy political party. Many years later, when Leon was recovering from a by-pass operation, Mandela visited him. “I heard a knock at the door followed by Mandela’s distinctive voice saying: ‘Is Mickey Mouse there? This is your friend Goofy’.”
