    Posted: 30 Mar 2011 at 8:24am
The elderly owner of an end-of-terrace house in Wales has been left bewildered by an internet joke that his house looks like Hitler.

Hundreds of thousands of people have viewed or shared the link to a photograph of the house in Swansea after it was published on Twitter, the social networking site.

The slanted roof was said to resemble the Hitler fringe, the door lintel was the moustache and the small top windows were seen as the dictator’s piercing eyes.

The joke took off when it was tweeted by Jimmy Carr, the comedian, but the owner of the house in Port Tenant, Swansea, a man in his 70s, said he had never even heard of Twitter.

The tweet was first posted by Charli Dickenson, 22, a youth worker, who spotted the bizarre similarity as she drove past.

“I walk past the house all the time, but I had never noticed the Hitler likeness before,” said Miss Dickenson. “But then, at the weekend, I was in the car with my boyfriend and we were stuck in traffic and I just said to him, 'That house looks like Hitler.’ We both laughed. I took a picture and posted it on Twitter.

“It was picked up by Jimmy Carr. Now everyone is talking about it!”

A neighbour, Lyn Thomas, 25, said: “I can see a resemblance now. I’ve lived here for two years but have never noticed anything before. I don’t know why it would be designed in such a way. It is uncanny.”

Another neighbour said: “People are joking that the house is the third on the Reich and that we live on the Western Front. You have to see the funny side of life sometimes.”

FFSLOL The least you could have done was read the article

Nazi%20impression%20...%20Hitler%20house%20in%20Swansea

By JOHN COLES

Published: Today

THE owner of the house that bizarrely looks like Hitler told yesterday how it was left standing in a blitz by the Luftwaffe.

Grandad Clive Davies, 65, described the Nazi bombing of Swansea's docks just yards away as "ruddy dangerous".

But the end-of-terrace his family has owned for a century - which was a gents' outfitters at the time - survived unscathed.

Tyrant%20...%20Hitler
Tyrant ... Hitler

Clive, who currently rents out the property as flats, said of its resemblance to the World War II dictator: "God only knows what my tenants make of all the fuss.

"Just so long as I'm not expected to chant 'Sieg heil' as I walk through the front door." His soldier son Guy - currently serving in Afghanistan - alerted his family when he saw online The Sun's story about the house becoming an internet sensation after being pictured on Twitter.

Gobsmacked Clive said: "He texted his wife at their base in Germany and she rang me in Swansea to tell me to buy the paper. I couldn't believe my eyes.

"I didn't see the resemblance at first - then it jumped out at me."
