The German post office has displayed its adherence to the rulebook by delivering a card addressed "Adolf Hitler, Reichstag" to the current seat of government in Berlin.
The handwritten postcard began "Dear Führer Hitler" and was signed by a "Herr T".
Dated Jan 26, but with an indecipherable postmark, it read: "I love and like you so much. I am your very best good friend and your SS personnel.
"Thank you so much for coming to see me in your splendid image last night... you have my life... and all my money."
The postcard concluded with a copy of an encyclopaedia entry on the "Legend of the Welsh Lovespoon".
This picture from the Corriere della Sera demonstates the proper use of the thurible.
