Obscure Historical Reference of the Day

Lloyd made reference to his dog Neville, who was named after former Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, who they happened to be studying in school the day he got his new dog. Mister Chamberlain is infamous for declaring ‘Peace for our time!’ after meeting with Herr Hitler in Munich in 1938. Of course history proved poor Neville wrong, as Herr Hitler was not good at keeping his promises.

    I was traipsing across the internet looking for a political cartoon inspirations for my daughter’s homework and spoke to her of a potential comical event of “lord” Chamberlain meeting with Adolf shaking hands and Hitler putting up “rabbit ears” behind Chamberlains head. I never thought that they actually met until this picture. God forbid that I ever see President Obama kissing a foreign dignitary ars…oops that already happended.
