All the crap which fills up my email – direct to you the consumer
i guess this is just another example of how “times have changed.” Funny stuff!
No you idiot, this isn’t an example of how times have changed. Granpa said he went there with the SS. I guess you don’t know who the SS is(was) or what makes this funny.
whats s. s. means
i loves the internet…
Are you people who dont know who the SS was/is seriously that uneducated?
if you STILL dont know what the SS was, google it.
you’re already inexcusable..
This will be just a classic example of the moral fibre of this world being slowly eroded.. eroded! into a thick primordial soup of low IQ, couldn’t care about the world around them scary people…
Jeez? ever heard of the holocaust? or Auschwitz? (and not the nuclear one, although you probably haven’t heard of those ones either)
by the way, the joke had me creasing up!!! very funny!
SS is a made up bunch of soldiers who fought for the supposed Third Reich in what was purported to be the Second World War.
Of course we all know that was a hoax and the holocaust was fake.
the power and glory of your History Book.
oh, everyone knew the french had it coming.
OMG SOMEBODY DOESN’T KNOW ABOUT SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED IN WORLD WAR TWO!
THEY MUST BE STUPID LOLLOLLOLLOLLOLOLOL
Seriously, shut the fuck up.
hitler own personal bodyguard >> Schutzstaffel S.S. dumbfucks
Reading these comments makes me despair of the human race – hmmm should I just shoot myself now………….
Reading these comments makes me despair of the human race! Hmmm should I just shoot myself now………….
Yes you should.
Lol Epic Fail at those who didn’t understand the SS reference. Mmm, basic 20th century history anyone?
In defense of the people freaking out on those who don’t/didn’t know who/what the SS were, I offer this:
“Not to know what happened before you were born is to be forever a child.”
Also, in 50-60 years, if you’re children/grandchildren came to you, and asked “Who was Osama bin Laden/Saddam Hussein/George W. Bush?” Or asked “What was 9/11?” Then I think you would be pretty surprised and angry; I know I would be. So don’t ridicule people for expressing surprise and disdain/disgust for people who don’t know who the SS were.
HE’S CLEARLY A PRICK, THAT JIMMY DEAN
only a moron would use some “forever a child” defense for being a moron. Read a book, fucktards.
i found it pretty funny.. i have heard of the SS before this… but when i first read it i was thinking of a boat… thinking he was with some navy group… then after i read the FIRST link to wiki, it sounded familiar… and dont get mad because we dont know… blame the schools, hell… the ones i went to kept teaching the alamo all the way up to the 9th grade.. and most of the time they only did amarican history.. touching on bits and pieces of WWI and WWII, most of the history i learned (and have forgotten) i got off the history channel… most of the stuff i have learned through my hole 20 years came from TV. and secondly… allot of people in my generation could care less about what happened 50-60 years ago… its sad, but true.
first first FIRST!
seriously though, instead of hating on people who don’t know what the SS is for being ignorant, why don’t we look at the education system and try to figure out why these people are unaware.
I really hope Deez was kidding about the holocaust being “fake.”
it seems odd that everyone was SO angry when someone didn’t know who the SS was but no reaction at all to holocaust deniers?
Really have one of you ever been to a concentration camp? I guess you haven’t, then you would understand why we are mad.
Personally I think my penis is too small to even comment. So I wont.
“Also, in 50-60 years, if you’re children/grandchildren came to you, and asked “Who was Osama bin Laden/Saddam Hussein/George W. Bush?” Or asked “What was 9/11?” Then I think you would be pretty surprised and angry; I know I would be. So don’t ridicule people for expressing surprise and disdain/disgust for people who don’t know who the SS were.” ^^^
Nazi’s exterminated 72 million civilians; that is separate from military deaths. They systematically worked, killed, and destroyed people.
2,973 people died as an immediate result of 9/11.
Comparing the two is wrong. This post is ridiculous, why is the internet so stupid sometimes. http://www.chartattack.com/damn/2007/11/0806.cfm
EVERYONE ON THIS THREAD NEEDS TO BE SHOT IN THE FACE
I agree with No one (who has the blame-the-schools argument). Even though I’ve been learning German for four years or so, been to Germany, a concentration camp, and generally had good grades in high school, I have never heard of the S.S.
I understand it’s an important part of WWII and Nazi Germany history (well, now I do anyway) but as the previous person said, the schools I went to just went over the history of our state for the majority of the years, and skimmed over world history, giving us broad views of history and barely any details. You can’t expect everyone to know everything unless they’re taught it in the first place, or have an outside interest in the subject.
But I can understand why you all are angry, because when I see idiotic American people who have no idea where, or what, Iraq is, or who the current president is, or how many states there are in the country, etc. … yeah. I understand. And I’m sorry.
Whys it always come down to the jews? Nazis did alot more than kill jews… PULLED GERMANY OUT OF A CRIPPLING DEPRESSION!!!! or did you not think about that? you damn undereducated bastards only look at the negitive…. George Washington owned slaves zomg he is evil… you all fail.
Most ppl these days learned about the S.S. through television.
That being said, the average 6-year old probably has never heard of Indiana Jones.
I don’t see why every 14 year old that’s stumbling across the internet absolutely HAS to know what the S.S. is. …for gods sake, they’re using the internet for stumbling
Shadocat, there’s nothing wrong with someone learning something from television. They still made the choice to watch the History Channel rather than Wife Swap.
As for the whole not-knowing-about-the-SS thing, there’s a big difference between the people saying “What’s the SS” and the people who say “Hahaha! I don’t know what that means but it was clearly a punchline!”
Nueuan, have you thought about your argument? 6.5 million Jews died according to Nazi figures (and lord knows, they knew how to keep records). If we were to systematically kill off a 10th of the population and use another batch for slave labor, we too can pull our economy out of any recession, depression or economic turmoil that we may see. I assume that you, Nueuan would be the first to volunteer for the camps when your country calls.
I’m highly educated, made wonderful grades, love knowing and learning about world history, have a master’s degree, and didn’t know what the SS was until just now. The SS was not something that was really taught in history classes that I can recall. Rather, the classes and textbooks seemed to focus on the events, the people, Hitler’s motivations, the dangers of appeasement, the horrors of the Holocaust, etc., rather than the names/initials of Hitler’s bodyguards. Imagine that!
I think those of you who don’t have enough humility to answer someone’s honest question about a relatively obscure part of World War II without calling names are the actual fucktards. Either learn how to know be knowledgeable gracefully, or go and play in traffic. Thank you, good night, and fuck you to all the elitists that are so appalled at this. I hope knowing what the SS is makes you feel there is some meaning to your pathetic life.
GET A SENSE OF HUMOUR ASSHOLES…I COMMAND YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyone wanting to understand more about Hitler and the how and why he got to power should watch “Hitler: The rise of evil”.
I don’t recall right now if the SS is in there at the final years but you will get a better understanding of those events anyway.
Most associate hitler only with WWII (1939/1945) but don’t be mistaken the rise of evil started a lot earlier. He was already leader of the NSP in 1921. And chancellor in 1933.
holy fuck this is unbelievable. i’ve known what the S.S. was since 3rd grade.
I find it 100%, abso-fucking-lutely impossible to believe that anyone who is university educated (as one poster claims to be) – or who has VISITED A CONCENTRATION CAMP?! (WTF?!) could not know what the S.S. is. You must have been stone cold on heroin when you went, or just ignorant as a donkeys asshole! Any tour will mention the S.S., any plaque you read will most likely mention the S.S. at some point.
I find it hard to believe that somebody could breathe on their own for 10 years and not acquire fundamental knowledge such as this, at LEAST via osmosis or something! To suggest that it is likely, nay, even POSSIBLE for someone to continue through to post-secondary education and have not been exposed to this type of information at some point is laughable.
If you can honestly claim that you have never heard of the S.S. in any capacity, ignorance must be your finest talent.
If you watch 6 hours worth of the history channel in your lifetime, your likelihood of being exposed to a reference involving the S.S. is astronomical. If you have ever watched a war movie, attended a history class, browsed the internet (apparently this is what finally got some of you! congratulations..), even played a video game on the topic (there are plenty). This is sad. Don’t you have grandparents? Ever visit a museum?
[...] SS-humor! Kommentarene under er stor [...]
I don’t think you have to blame the people for their ignorance.
As the old saying goes: wir haben das nicht gewusst
“I hope knowing what the SS is makes you feel there is some meaning to your pathetic life.”
I hope being highly educated, “making” wonderful grades, knowing and learning about world history, having a master’s degree and not knowing what the SS was until just now does the same for you.
“Mikey Benny”, tell us some sources you have “learned” about world history from, and I’ll bet I can find references to SS in them. You probably just skimmed through it to add to your pseudo-intellectual image, idiot.
hearing about the SS is one thing… use some fucking common sence… a game says SS in it, it wont take the time to tell you what it is, when i did go to school i watched the hystory channel allot.. heard about the SS from time to time. thats why it seemed a bit familiar.. but never actually heard what it was. and if what “iain m said” said is true, and he/she learned this in the third grade, then it was probably a school that was payed for, private school. from kindergarden to fifth covers primarily US history, and skims over world history.. you dont actually get a class called world history till usually highschool. and even then they only handle the REALLY big things.. SS might have done allot.. over a period of time. the world history classes i took covered BIG things that happened in a short amount of time that changed the coarse of things, not things that happened over a long period.. SS might have been something big… over the years it was active… it wasnt a huge thing in just a couple hours of time. so most hystory classes will skip over it, might mention a bit but not ever really going into detail. unless you have a teacher that believes its a big deal. my history class was more focused on what AMERICA did in the war, not what a faction of germans did. and we look at WWII negatively because thats what was usually covered… you rarely hear how because of what hitler did it helped anything. allot of tech was created in that time because people were trying to out do their enemies. people view hitler as a bad person.. when he was a bit off.. but not really that bad. i personally believe he was doing what he thought best for the country. allot of yall will come back with “he thought killing allot of jews was good” well, he had his own plan, and in his plan what he thought was best was to do what he did, even if it was wrong to allot of people. personally if i had a choice, the world would be ruled by one person that would bring piece through fear. because thats really the only possible way piece can be achieved. diplomacy only works with people that dont want to fight, but that doesnt work when people would rather just kill you and have piece that way.. anyways, im getting side tracked… point remains… ALLOT OF SCHOOLS DONT COVER THE SS BECAUSE THEY DONT FEEL THAT IT WAS AN IMPORTANT THING IN WWII. any plagues you read that mention the SS does only that. mentions.. it doesnt say what the SS was… and if your on vacation most of the time you wont see SS on a plague and think “hey, i wonder what that is” and go look it up.
The second war was simply a result from the outcome of world war 1 when Germany had a reason for war.
At least untill they started attacking countries who had nothing to do with the assasination of Frans Ferdinant.
Hitler just used the Jews (who where the richest minority in the country)as the fall-guys.
I believe I would be a great world-dictator.
When the revolution comes please join my side, otherwise you will suffer a horrible death.
See you at Waterloo
This was mildly funny until I read all the shit-for-brains comments.
Get an education, seriously. Besides that, don’t believe all the propaganda you hear about WWII anyway. I still humor myself with the revisionist history that “The Holocaust Never Happened”, and I still call Russia “The Soviet Union”. It’ll be the Soviet Union forever in my opinion.
Yes, the fall of communism was terrible for the U.S., it has left the people unrestrained and unafraid. Thank God for terrorism (or whatever the hell that was) or else the ignorant masses might rise up. Every government rules by fear. In the U.S. we rule by extreme propaganda.
See also, how Hitler came to power–looks a lot like Obama today. Nobody thinks, his shit looks like a pep rally. Poor Clinton keeps trying to talk about issues–as has been the Democrat appeal in the past, get an emotional response without proposing a solution to a problem. Hil doesn’t know what to do when another just ramps up impressive speech not actually talking about ANY topic. Freakin’ Pep Rally! Oh yeah, that’s how Hitler came to power. Scary. Why don’t people think?
Good lord people.
I didn’t know what the S.S. was so I scrolled down because I had a feeling that other people would have felt the same way so it may have been explained.
Of course I am greeted with the usual “f*ck sake n00b go google it” or “anyone who doesn’t know that is a f*cking moron”.
Ever hear of a thing called patience? Some education systems do not cover everything in as much detail. I have spent most of my education learning mainly Irish history (and a lot of Greek/Roman history)so as is expected I wouldn’t know as much about WWII, but that does not make me an idiot.
Thank you for being pretentious snobs instead of giving a proper answer.
Well i thought it stood for secret service, but what do i know.
hehehe… dont pummel me wit your almighty words
haha lol u are all rong! ss is a hotdog foodchain in iceland!!!
hahaha :D.. en hey veit samt einhver í alvöru hvað þetta þýðir… ég er svo forvitin:S..;)..
The SS was a German paramilitary group that during the second world war grew into an elite military group under Adolf Hitler. They were commanded by Himmler and essentially did everything Hitler “asked” them to.
They served in the concentration camps, as death squads (to “neutralize” potential threats) and various other evil stuff.
Think of them in regards to Hitler as Star Wars Stormtroopers were to the Emperor.
the SS were not a paramilitary group but a formation of pseudo religious body guards formed from the remnants of the former SA (brown shirts).
Their role was similar to the role of the Jesuit priests in Catholicism (the police of the church if you like). They had units of armor and infantry (the Waffen SS) and also and airborne division. The camp guards were usually made up from ethnic German ‘races’ (Lithuanians, Estonians, Latvians; generally those areas of the former Greater Germany) who were recruited into the SS.
There is so much written about the Third Reich and all of it available so as one poster put it ‘READ A BOOK!’
You are not morons or fucktards for not knowing this, just a little in need of enlightenment
My point is that one could get through life without ever knowing that. It can be classed as common knowledge yes, but not as absolutely essential. Thanks gobshite and Johann!
STFU Nueuan… that was the most dipshitic comment I’ve seen in a while.
I learned about the SS by playing Wolfenstein 3D when I was 14. They’re the bigger, tougher version of German guards. Plus, they get machine guns. They’re pretty hardcore. They would totally mess up Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman from Moulin Rouge.
Who says computer games don’t teach you anything ?
damn right i learnt a lot of vocab from computer games lol. But yeah
Thanks for the info you guys
Has no-one picked up on “what no-one said” said. Bit ironic that, despite telling everyone to “read a book” you cant be arsed reading a comment cos its too long…
“well, he had his own plan, and in his plan what he thought was best was to do what he did, even if it was wrong to allot of people. personally if i had a choice, the world would be ruled by one person that would bring piece through fear. because thats really the only possible way piece can be achieved.”
First, learn grammar. Learn to FUCKING SPELL. Forgive me if I dont sign up to the revisionist theory of a mental retard. Also, so what if he thought he was right. The Jonestown suicide pacters though they were right. High school shooters think they are right. Peadophiles think they are right. And so on.
Also, would you support rule through fear? Or would you support it until your family was sent to a concentration camps for speaking out, or talking to an “undesirable”. Funny how these ideas are never good when applied to you…
Going of on a tangent, knowing what the SS were is secondary to knowing what the Nazis were, and what they did. Knowing knowing the names is less important if you understand the act and its implications.
Finally, @ geoff – comparing Hitler to Obama? I’m sorry, but Hitler never pretended that he wasn’t all he turned out to be. He had solutions alright. Boy did he have solutions…
Hitler played on people’s fears, and he knew where to point the blame. Its a bit sinister to call Hitler’s speeches pep rallies. Hitler never went for form over substance (he was just crazy) and so your comparison sucks.
We all know the Holocaust didn’t happen.
SS isn’t a a funny punchline The 101st Airborne maybe. I just don’t see the grandpa pictured here as a former Nazi.
i didn’t know what the SS was until now, but i hafta say those of u who are flaming about how stupid people are for not knowing, kinda made me frown. ’cause for one thing, i may not know everything but i’m a fairly good student that can do calc and write at a college level, which is probably nothing compared to some of u, but looking at most of the kids from where i’m from (los angeles), it’s something.
anyhow, i don’t think any of u have the right to call anyone stupid because if i said something u didn’t know about that wasn’t quite unheard of, then would that make u stupid? then i guess we’re all just a bunch of fucking idiots.
No seriously, if you didn’t know what the S.S. was, and you are over 7 years old, you are a disgrace to the world.
I love smart humor.
Reading the replies, am i ever happy I’m from Canada.
By no standards do we have the BEST education system, but clearly its a lot more open minded and spreads over a vast array of subjects in comparison to the American system.
We are learning about wars now in my history class. I am in the 3rd grade (4th next year).
I do now about the people in Africa, Who Obama and Bush is. I can find Germany on a map and I know where East Germany used to be. I am only 8 years old. I am going to be 9 soon.
I don’t know what an SS is yet. I am going to ask tomorrow if I am not still at home sick.
I think that it is good to know about history. Sometimes people make jokes about stuff that is scary to them. Sometimes my parents make a joke about me being sick and having to go to the doctor all of the time.
I think maybe that people should not get so mad when they read stuff that they do not like or makes them feel bad. It is wrong to not let people say what they are thinking.
The way all of you people swear all of the time in your replies makes me think that none of you cocksuckers are very smart. Hee Hee
ROFL ROFL ROFL ROFL LOL LOL LOL
first off, i would like to say, SS is NOT something that was taught in my history class. we learned all about stuff from the Gilded Age to now, but knowing who the SS were specifically was not part of it. and i’m talkin’ standard public high school US history course. while i might–keyword “MIGHT”–have learned about them specifically if i had taken the college level course, i highly doubt it. with history probably about 99% of people only know the basics.
over a year ago i did a research paper on Josef Mengele. but that’s just me. not EVERYBODY did it. so i don’t expect a good chunk of people to even know who he was (he relates to the Holocaust btw)
just because someone doesn’t know specifics on history doesn’t mean they’re ignorant. i assure you 100% of people in this world go on just fine not knowing EVERY SINGLE LITTLE THING about everything.
jeez, just let people have fun and be entertained, whether they truly get it or not.
it’s just a joke. it’s on the internet.
…wow xXKadavraXx thats very sad to hear. the SS are a pretty big part of history that pertain to the world at large, and even in an essential level class here in canada the SS is taught….
… just wow how could that not be taught
Yo, a younger generation is reading this, and no we don’t know that much about world war 2! Its not that we are stupid we simply just don’t know about. To us world war 2 seems like a faraway distant war that happened forever ago and doesn’t really concern us, but not knowing about it DOES NOT make us stupid. Thats like saying an old guy who doesn’t know how to build a computer is mentally retarded, LAY OFF! Also, thanks to everyone who answered the s.s question by actually contributing something.
using “bloody” as an adjective here ruins the whole strip… no former S.S. would use a brit word like that :p
you people are all insane…someone makes a funny little comic/ joke thing…and then everyone gets all up in arms about education/ww2/ss/stupidity/whatever
Someone really needs to inject some morphine into all of your foods so you can chill.
Oh and you young people. Get off the phone for awhile and pick up a book, please?
I went to a concentration camp once. i got an A+ i n algebra
Hah, I’m not surprised that nobody knows who the SS are. I only heard about them once, when I was taking an extra class on both World Wars at an MIT program. I’m 14 for Christ’s sake. Shove a prune up your butts, because the comments about “how every person just needs to be shot in the face” sounds a lot like something an SS member would say himself.
Everyone here bashing people for being unaware- Quit wasting time. Instead of knocking the ignorant people, teach them something and quit being pretentious assholes.
Quite funny joke, for those that make such a big fuss, you should take a chill pill, it is just a joke. for those who claim hollocaust to be a collective invention, you should buy a history book somewhere else. Despite that, it is hillarious.
Okay… Here’s a new one for you guys: I know what the S.S. is… But I don’t get the joke. Lol. Go ahead, start pummeling me.
The comic sucked but the comments are just hilariously sad.
“Oh no, what does SS mean?”
“You don’t know some obscure historical reference??? Commence suicide.”
I think people only say “Google It” because they are to retarded to make a comprehensible explanation.
Didn’t anybody watch ‘Hogan’s Heroes’? They had a character who was SS. Major Hochstetter, his uniform was black instead of grey. Even the regular German army feared the power of those in the SS.
That is a horrific “cartoon”. The SS were a gang of torturing, murdering, Nazi thugs. Shame on you for giving something so sick web-time.
I’m totally with the herp to the derpaderp herp. Maybe even herpa the derp derp herpaderpherp!
