Hitler Pin Cushion

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.
Our was a little more quiet than usual.
 We hosted an early feast 
By late afternoon, with leftovers
stacked neatly away in the fridge
and with Mr. Cactus in a turkey induced coma,
I had a few moments to sit down and
 scope Pinterest
As a quilter, I've collected 
Pin Cushions
over the years
and now like to Pin
unique and creative ideas
to my own Board.
I was a little taken aback to see this
Hitler Pin Cushion
a 1940's Novelty Gift
Originally produced by Gag Gift Companies
this Pin Cushion came in several forms
and sold for around .69 cents
 There was even a 
Stick-a-Pin-in-Hitler Club
As reported by 
President Roosevelt
found the pin cushion so comical
he even kept one on his desk.
