It appears that Adolph Hitler and Josef Stalin are continuing their respective reigns of terror. Governments are planning a cull of so-called “Nazi Raccoons,” which were introduced by Hermann Goering to Germany in 1934 to “enrich the Reich’s fauna.” The raccoons are actually imports from America. In the meantime, England is also fretting over the movement of huge numbers of “Stalin crabs” toward its shores.
The Nazi raccoons have spread across Europe — ironically in the same path of the German invasion — through France, Belgium, Holland and Denmark.
The raccoon were actually secured and released by Baron Sittich Von Berlerpsch released at the encouragement of Goering. Back then they were known as wash-bears.
The crabs ordered by Stalin to be introduced in Russian waters are appropriately called “red crabs.” Some chefs relish the crabs, here. However, countries like Norway have complained that they threaten their resources and other aquatic life, here.
The problem is that a new Churchill can hardly announce: “We are waiting for the long-promised invasion. So are the fishes.” They are after the fishes and everything else!
