Capping off a horror year that has seen a string of high-profile celebrity deaths, Adolf Hitler has risen from his grave just in time for New Year’s Eve.
Hitler, who was Führer of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945, was found enjoying a currywurst at a market in Berlin this morning, where he told shocked onlookers he was looking forward to a better view of the fireworks this year. He also said he had learned a lot since killing himself by gunshot.
“During my death, I finally watched Seinfeld,” said Hitler. “This documentary gave me a more positive outlook on certain groups of people, and I hope to make amends by opening several comedy camps across Germany so they can concentrate purely on humour.”
Not everyone’s convinced, with many saying Hitler’s resurrection is 2016’s way of giving everyone the finger on its way out.
Hollywood has taken the news seriously, with “at least 80 holocaust movies planned for January”.
