Happy birthday, Adolf

A cake shop in New Jersey has become embroiled in an argument after it refused to personalise a birthday cake with a toddler’s name.

The boy’s family, the Campbells, are up in arms — they cannot understand why the shop has refused to inscribe little Adolf Hitler Campbell’s name on the cake.

Said Adolf’s mother: “ShopRite can’t even make a cake for a three-year-old. That’s sad.”

The shop merely commented that inscribing a birthday wish to Adolf Hitler was “inappropriate” but added that it had offered to make a cake with room for the family to inscribe their own message but this offer had been turned down.

Wonder what their spelling is like?
