Happy Birthday, Adolf

5:00 PM -- The town of Easton, Pa., is up in arms after a local ShopRite threatened to ruin the birthday of little Adolf Hitler Campbell. Yes, that's Adolf Hitler Campbell.

The Associated Press reports:

    A supermarket is defending itself for refusing to a write out 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell's name on his birthday cake. Deborah Campbell, 25, of nearby Hunterdon County, N.J., said she phoned in her order last week to the Greenwich ShopRite. When she told the bakery department she wanted her son's name spelled out, she was told to talk to a supervisor, who denied the request.

    Karen Meleta, a ShopRite spokeswoman, said the store denied similar requests from the Campbells the last two years, including a request for a swastika.

But wait! Don't worry too much about the plight of the Campbell family!

    The Campbells ultimately got their cake decorated at a Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania, Deborah Campbell said Tuesday.

See? Just when you think there's not a store in town willing to compromise its principles... there's always Wal-Mart.

    Heath Campbell said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because "no one else in the world would have that name."

Except for, you know, the original...

According to AP, Heath and Deborah "Parents of the Year" Campbell also have two other children: 2-year-old JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell and baby Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell.
