Hitler? Paintings on Sale

Art supposedly done by Adolf Hitler will be going on sale in Britain tomorrow -- though this Guardian writer thinks they're all forgeries anyway so stop making a fuss (and even if they were by Hitler, the paintings were pretty terrible anyway).
I always enjoyed the Eddie Izzard comedy sketch on Hitler's failed career as a painter: "I can't get the trees just right- damn! I will kill everyone in the world!" When I was applying for colleges, one scholarship committee asked, "If you could do one thing to change the course of history, what would you do?" My response: "I would advise a certain art school admissions committee to rethink the rejection of one applicant, Adolf Hitler."
