Heil Starfish!

Reminder: Starfish Hitler exists.

I finally got an explanation of why they chose a starfish: The Japanese word for starfish is "hitora," which is also roughly how a native Japanese speaker pronounces Hitler. So it's a pun. (According to the video comments, the same series featured Gengis Khan Condor ["Gengis KhanCondor"], and Ant Capone, among others. Incidentally, I posted this because my original Starfish Hitler post had its videos removed ages ago.)
