Who knew the character of Girl Hitler from The Venture Bros was based on historical fact? This is almost as insane as the time the military spent over 7 million dollars developing a bomb that would turn enemy soldiers gay. (HERE)
via The Daily Mail:
With no end to the Second World War in sight, British spies came up with a plan to lace Adolf Hitler’s food with female sex hormones to curb his aggressive impulses.
Agents planned to smuggle doses of oestrogen into his food to make him less aggressive and more like his docile younger sister Paula.
Uh, I believe it’s spelled estrogen? Silly Brits.
While pretty ingenious, this would have been a bad idea for a number of reasons:
Everybody loves tits. Put a pair of torso nads on the most evil man who ever lived and you run the risk of making him more popular than he already is. The hormones might have mellowed him out, but the development of secondary female sex characteristics would have inspired even more devotion in his followers. The sexier a world leader is, the more powerful they are. Just ask Margaret Thatcher.
Secondly- I can’t really think of a second reason. Maybe this would have worked. Maybe Auntie Adolf would have moved to New York City and gotten involved in the club scene, becoming a wealthy socialite and world renown fashion icon. You never know…
