Here in Jersey, we’re kinda used to people making fun of us. And while most of us are nothing like those morons on the Jersey Shore, people do tend to ridicule the way we talk, our highways, our malls and our great big former swamp known as The Meadowlands. The thing is, we really don’t give a shit. There are some really great things about this state…we just don’t want all of you to know about them. As a result, we get no respect.
Now we’ve learned of one more indignity. Of all the places in the world, where do you think Adolf Hitler’s shitter ends up? Yeah, Jersey. It seems that for the past sixty, yes sixty years, the Fuhrer’s throne from his yacht the Aviso Grille, has been residing in, of all places, a New Jersey auto body shop. Don’t ask, it’s only a toilet, we’ve had bodies end up in stranger places.
The toilet and a sink were purchased from a scrapyard when the ship was torn apart and sold off in pieces. The original owner of the auto body shop installed the toilet and used it for the next eighteen years. It is now on display in the front of the shop where it has become a tourist attraction.
And pretty it ain’t. The shop’s current owner has said he is not quite the housekeeper and the toilet is pretty crappy looking…literally. I’m assuming he believes that reflects more on Hitler than on him.
So while many of you may believe this toilet ending up in New Jersey is the latest in an unending series of jokes at our expense, we feel it portrays a basic attitude we have. We may not have much royalty in Jersey, but you can still come and take a look at our thrones.
