This kid’s name is actually Adolf Hitler. No, really. And his parents are mad because their local Shop Rite wouldn’t make li’l Adolf a cake with his name on it for his third birthday. According to lehighvalleylive.com:

Good names for a trio of toddlers? Heath and Deborah Campbell think so. The Holland Township couple has picked those names and the oldest child, Adolf Hitler Campbell, turns 3 today.
"We believe the request … to inscribe a birthday wish to Adolf Hitler is inappropriate," said Karen Meleta, a ShopRite spokeswoman.
"ShopRite can’t even make a cake for a 3-year-old," said Deborah Campbell, 25, who is Heath’s wife of three years and the mother of the children. "That’s sad."
The grocer offered to make a cake with enough room for the Campbells to write their own inscription. But the Campbells refused, saying they would have a cake made at the Wal-Mart in Lower Nazareth Township. The Campbells say Wal-Mart made cakes for Adolf’s first two birthdays.
A spokeswoman for Wal-Mart said the store won’t put anything illegal or profane on a cake but thinks it’s important to respect the views of customers and employees.
"Our No. 1 priority in decorating cakes is to serve the customer to the best of our ability," Anna Taylor, the spokeswoman, said from Bentonville, Ark.
Isn’t it great that Wal-Mart will forego any concerns for decency in order to make $13 on a birthday cake? It’s refreshing to see someone take a stand for the little (racist) guy.
But I was left wondering, if Wal-Mart would put "Adolf Hitler" on a cake, could ANYONE walk in and get their name on a special birthday cake? Oh, and did I mention that my name is "Wal-Mart Loves To Suck Big Fat Donkey Cocks"? Here’s what my Wal-Mart cake looks like:
