Actually, I'm running low on Hitler-Punchery in general. If you want to keep this blog alive and kicking, feel free to donate your own original Hitler-punching art to HitlerPuncher AT gmail DOT com.
Thanks to this library for all the Seussiana...

But it really happened:
The answer is of course, Operation Cornflakes. Which is a lame name for a kickass project:
Operation Cornflakes was a World War II Office of Strategic Services PSYOP mission in 1944 and 1945 which involved tricking the German postal service Deutsche Reichspost into inadvertently delivering anti-Nazi propaganda to German citizens through mail.Pretty rad. Shame about the name. I guess they can't all be Operation Midnight Climax.
The operation involved special planes that were instructed to airdrop bags of false, but properly addressed mail in the vicinity of bombed mail trains. When recovering the mail during clean-up of the wreck, the postal service would hopefully confuse the false mail for the real thing and deliver it to the various addresses.
The content of the mail often included copies of Das Neue Deutschland, the Allies' German language propaganda news sheet. In addition, the postage stamps used were subtly designed to resemble the standard stamp with Adolf Hitler's face, but a close examination would reveal that his face is made to look like an exposed skull or similarly unflattering imagery. Also, the country identifier 'Deutsches Reich' (German Empire) read 'Futsches Reich' (Kaput Empire).
The first mission of Operation Cornflakes took place on 5 February 1945, when a mail train to Linz was bombed. Bags containing a total of about 3800 propaganda letters were then dropped at the site of the wreck, which were subsequently picked up and delivered to Germans by the postal service.

Thanks to Slaky for tipping me off to the existence of Operation Cornflakes, and Dan for

BY AN ACTUAL PRESIDENT!
Actually, it's also a Cap #1 Tribute!
This little gem is by Jayson Scott Musson. There's more Obama adventures here.
Thanks, Ann. You just made my entire week.

...The least I can do is take it out on Hitler.
More Dr. Seuss from here. And no, I don't have a special St. Patrick's Day one. Apparently the Irish don't care enough to punch Hitler for me.

In case you've forgotten why to punch Hitler (other than, you know, the whole "Hateful, Racist Genocidal Madman" thing), you can check the other reasons here. And maybe one day, I'll replace those dead photobucket links.
Thanks to Beaneater for the pic.

...and stabbing Hitler in the face.
Sure, it's only a poster, but you gotta love the fact he's riddled with bullets and has what I can only assume is a Bowie knife in his temple.
Thanks to The Hundley for this, the manliest thing you'll probably see today.

Of course, it also makes me feel somewhat guilty for spending nearly a year putting up pictures of Hitler toilet paper and Captain America #1 tributes.
No, I'm kidding. I love putting stuff like that up.
