Gingerbread Nazi Art Display Is Too Much (Ohio)
OBERLIN, Ohio -- An artist's creation of gingerbread Nazis drew complaints after it was displayed in a hardware store window, prompting the store owner to demand the artwork be removed. Charlie Palmer covered the gingerbread men during the weekend and said he wanted them out by of his business by Tuesday.
"He's gone way overboard this time," Palmer said of artist Keith McGuckin."A few of his other displays were on the edge, but never that crazy."
McGuckin said he chose the subject to provoke thought, not to offend.
"I can differentiate between real Nazis and that the atrocities they performed compared to these little gingerbread men, but I guess some people can't," said McGuckin, 50.
Palmer left one of McGuckin's displays uncovered: a depiction of a
suicidal snowman sitting under a hairdryer.
