Why the Nazis Lost World War II

Idiocy beyond the conception of lesser men:

"In his new book Amazing Dogs: A Cabinet of Canine Curiosities, Cardiff University historian Jan Bondeson mines obscure German periodicals to reveal the Nazis' failed attempt to breed an army of educated dogs that could read, write and talk.

According to the book, scientists envisioned a day when dogs would serve alongside German troops, and perhaps free up SS officers by guarding concentration camps. So to unlock all that canine potential, Hitler set up a Tier-Sprechschule (Animal Talking School) near Hanover and recruited "educated dogs" from throughout the country."

If only they'd had a little more time, this was bound to work. Yes sir.

On the other hand, someone did teach Michelle Bachmann to talk.
