Would You Have Joined The Hitler Youth in 1937? The First Part in My “What would You Do ?” Questions Series

June 9, 2011

Hugh Paxton’s Blog poses this simple question ” WHAT WOULD YOU DO?”

I start with the Hitler Youth.

What would you do?: Would you join the Hitler Youth in 1937?

Before answering, check Youtube, check the posts. Check the Hitler Youth rallies.  Would you join the Hitler Youth in 1937?


a) Yes It looks like fun! And everybody seems to agree!

Or b):  No. It looks like hard work but the girls look great! (Or the boys look great!) and I’m stuck in a Bavarian village with nothing to do. At all.

b) after a rethink ” Maybe, hell, why not!”

c)  Jews are lice and Bolshevism is a monster and the sick weakness of traitors. Of course, I’ll join. I’m stuck in a bloody village in East Prussia and there’s nothing to do.

d)  I’m Jewish and German but I’m foremost a Jew and a German. This Hitler Youth thing looks liberating. Running with guns, singing, but they don’t like Jews. Joining isn’t an option.

What do you think? Does World Cup Soccer Need Goal Line Technology?

June 28, 2010

In the wake of the England v. Germany miscarriage of justice, do you think FIFA should install goal line technology to register goals that escape the notice of the potentially visually impaired referee and linesmen?

This Blog always offers prizes to competition and quiz winners, but by and large, you actually have to turn up to collect them. We can’t be bothered to go to the post office and last week there was a riot. The post office caught a packet. I won’t bother going there until it stops burning!

Steve Hollier has answered most quizzes correctly, closely followed by my brother, Charles, and his wife Kimmie. This isn’t nepotism. Nobody else bothers to answer this Blog’s quizzes! Come on chaps! Look alive!

All Blog prize winners have won fabulous beach holidays in Thailand. If they bother to come and collect them. They haven’t yet but the beaches are there and the prizes still stand.

The Malima quiz prize is not as exciting, I regret to say. The winner gets a pig woven out of ship’s rope.

And the quiz competition is tough! We don’t give Malima pigs away lightly!

In addition to getting the questions right you also have to submit 200 words on “What I would do to Malima if I caught him raiding my larder, talking nonsense,  and leaving muddy foot prints on my floor while meddling with my cleaner and trying to force my daughter into a multi-partner Zulu style sexual relationship while eating hippo meat, drinking too much, dabbling just a little bit with drugs   and making everybody in South Africa hate each other.”

Two hundred words.

Anybody want our prestigious Malima pig prize? Go for it guys!

We will post you your Malima pig if you win! Fed Ex. That’s a guarantee!

Very interesting….
Question 1:
If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had Syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Read the next question before looking at the response for this one.

Question 2:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three candidates.

Candidate A:
Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists. He’s had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 Martinis a day.

Candidate B:
He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in College and drinks a quart of whisky every evening.

Candidate C:
He is a decorated war hero. He’s a vegetarian, doesn’t smoke, drinks an occasional beer and never committed adultery.

Which of these candidates would be our choice?

Decide first… No peeking, and then scroll down for the response.

















Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question:
If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven.

Pretty interesting isn’t it?
Makes a person think before judging someone.

How Heavy Is The Artist?

February 25, 2010

Bangkok Calling!

And here’s a competition.

Bangkok has a sophisticated metro rail system and if you are planning to use it regularly your best bet is to buy an electronic swipe card that enables you to make multiple journeys. The cards are decorated with exquisite water colour images. Mine has flowers.

And on Sunday, by chance, I met the artist.

I shall supply the correct answer in two days time along with a photo of the painting. The lucky winner will receive a bunch of bananas and an opportunity to meet the artist face to face (with the proviso that the award winning ceremony will take place in Bangkok so you’ll have to pay for your flight).

Somali Radio Quiz. (Not a joke)

October 21, 2009

Hugh Paxton’s Blog had the dubious privilege of spending some quality time in Somalia during the disastrous US intervention “Operation Restore Hope.”

Things are still as hopeless as ever. I’ve just learned that a Somali radio station is contributing to the ongoing anarchy.

First quiz prize if you answer the DJ’s questions?

One Ak-47 assault rifle, two grenades and one anti-tank mine.

Runners up get an AK.

Not a joke. 

It makes Radio Butt Naked in my novel, Homunculus, look rather moderate.
