Cafe Our Bad

2:10 PM -- Following up on the little restaurant that shouldn't, the Mumbai-based "Hitler's Cross" has bowed to international outrage and acknowledged that naming a restaurant after history's most monstrous asshole was, duh, a grotesquely bad idea.

Reuters reports that:

    "Hitler's Cross," which opened a week ago using posters of the Fuehrer and Nazi swastikas for publicity, initially refused to change its name, but relented Thursday and covered its signboards with white cloth...

    "We acknowledge that the name adopted by us for our restaurant was most inappropriate," Satish Sabhlok, one of the owners of the multi-cuisine restaurant, said in a statement.

    "Our intention was not to glorify Hitler or his atrocities or ideology in any way and we regret the anguish caused by the use of this name."

I propose "Never Eat at This Place Run by Astonishingly Clueless Morons Restaurant" as a potential new name -- and they can have it free of charge.
