We have seen pictures of cats that resemble Hitler. And not long ago, photos of a goldfish owned by a couple in Stockport created a buzz as it resembles Hitler.
And now an unassuming semi-detached house in Wales has become an unlikely Web star after Internet users think that it looks a lot like Adolf Hitler’s face.
The Swansea home’s tan-colored, four-window facade stared out from British tabloid newspapers Wednesday following a great buzz house after a photo of the house was published on Twitter, the social networking site.
The lintel above the houes’s slim brown door vaguely echoes the Nazi dictator’s toothbrush mustache, with the black sloping roof reminiscent of Hitler’s side-parted greased down hair and the small top windows were seen as the dictator’s piercing eyes.
The house — divided into two flats with four bedrooms and a small terrace at the rear— in Port Tennant, Swansea, South Wales, has become an internet hit after sharp-eyed Charli Dickenson spotted the resemblance and posted photos on her Twitter page.
Youth worker Charli, 22, said: “I walk past the house all the time – but I’d never noticed the Hitler likeness before.
“But then, at the weekend, I was in the car with my boyfriend and we were stuck in traffic – and I just said to him: ‘That house looks like Hitler’.
“We both laughed about it. I took a picture and posted it on Twitter.
“It’s very funny – everyone who has seen the picture says it looks like Hitler.
“It was picked up by Jimmy Carr on his Twitter. Now everyone is talking about it.”
Comedian Carr posted the picture on his account on the social networking site, saying: “Morning. Here’s a house that looks like Hitler.”
The Hitler house was sent on by hundreds of his followers — and Charli quickly became a trending topic on Twitter.
A neighbour, Lyn Thomas, 25, said: “I can see a resemblance now. I’ve lived here for two years but have never noticed anything before. I don’t know why it would be designed in such a way. It is uncanny.”
Another neighbour Donald Payne, 60, a plasterer, laughed as he said: “It does look a bit like the old Fuhrer, doesn’t it?
“You’d never know from this side of the street, but from a bit of a distance, it could almost be him. How funny that I never even noticed before.
“I hope we don’t get invaded by bus loads of tourists pulling up to take a photo. We’re right on the side of a dual carriageway here and it will cause carnage.
“If it starts attracting the wrong sort of people, I might speak to the owner and see if he’ll let me paint the front door another colour – or give the roof a centre parting instead.”
Another local said: “The jokes have already started.
“Some people are saying the house is on Swansea’s Eastern Front and the main road outside should now be re-named the Heil Street.”
