Ludlow, UK - A collection of thirteen watercolours by Adolf Hitler was sold at auction here today for an unexpected £94,895. The pieces were painted between 1908 and the invasion of Poland in 1939.
Auctioneer, Freddie Charterhouse-Rivers told us:
"I was surprised by the selling price. We expected to get around five or six grand for the job lot but it seems that Combat 18 and the Ku Klux Klan got involved in a bidding war. Which is of course, good news for us."
The spoof.com reporting team previewed the collection prior to auction, and found nothing remarkable, nor anything to suggest that Hitler was talented as an artist in any way.
There were a few still lifes, but the highest earner was a self portrait of the Fuhrer sitting on an ancient stone bridge. Wearing a brown shirt. Wanking into a river. It went for £10k. Anecdotal evidence from the catalogue appeared to suggest that the wanking Hitler was trying to find out if come floats or sinks in water. As he only had one ball, the results were inconclusive.
More as we get it.
