Autumn for Hitler

Gothamist today has a hilarious story-about-a-story-in-the-New York Post; the headline is “Heil o’ween,” and concerns a 16-year-old Brooklynite named Walter Pertyk who yesterday wore a Hitler costume to school. The kid’s obviously not a racist, so it makes it easier to laugh about. Gothamist quotes the following from the Post story:

“Excuse me, fuhrer, can I talk to you for a minute?” is how Petryk recalled the dean, Paul Puglia, summoning him out of class.

Puglia then allegedly asked, “Are you out of your mind, you idiot?” and ordered him to the office with, “Consider yourself my prisoner of war.”

Nice. Pretty funny way to deal with the situation.
