This is so odd ... What were they thinking??
The ad reads:
'One, Two, Three… Dr Mengele slimming pills work wonders for you! There were no thickset people in Buchenwald!"

TALLINN, Estonia - Jewish organizations have denounced an Estonian newspaper for publishing a mock ad for weight-loss pills depicting emaciated prisoners at a Nazi concentration camp.
Efraim Zuroff of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Jerusalem on Sunday called the mock ad in the Eesti Ekspress weekly a "perverted attempt at humor at the expense of the Nazis' millions of victims."
Alla Jakobson, spokeswoman for Estonia's Jewish community, said in newspaper Postimees that the incident shows Estonian society is experiencing "major problems with moral and ethical values."
Sulev Vedler, deputy editor of Eesti Ekspress, says the mock ad, which ran in the paper's humor section, was poking fun at an Estonian gas company that recently used an image of Auschwitz to promote its services.
Vedler says the ad "was not targeted against Jewish people."
What is wrong with people?..was poking fun at an Estonian gas company that recently used an image of Auschwitz to promote its services.
I sleep in the daytime, I
Work in the night time, I
Might not ever get home
Never a dull moment.
I'm reminded of this fiasco from the 80s.
4 more years!

I don't see anything wrong with the ad for the vodka.
...the ad for dog treats is a little bizarre...
...majestically enthroned amid the vulgar herd...
This one's weird....
