looks like the Campbell family will take their business to WalMart, who will happily bake a birthday cake for little Adolph Hitler.

No child named after Eva Braun?

Those poor kids.

Hm. Interesting. This gives me 5 months to convince my wife to name our daughter JoyceLynn Aryan Nation.

(what? it's just a name!)

They should've made the cake. It's none of the store's business what people name their children. Who are they to judge?

On the one hand, I agree with this comment
"Any parent that would impose such horrific names on their children is mentally ill, and they would be affecting their children from the day they were born. Only a crazy person would do that."
On the other hand, the state apparently accepted (perhaps wrongly) on a birth certificate, therefore, it is the kid's name. It is NOT everybody else's place to play "name police" and mistreat the kid because of fuckhead parents. The welfare slackers probably have a reasonable discrimination beef and will parley this into a nice settlement.

Something similar happened to me. I have a friend that just bought a new kegerator for his apartment and I wanted to buy him a personalized 25oz mug with his initials engraved in it. Now my friend's initials are ********* I see why this is funny and honestly I thought it would be a good gift (he knows its funny too). I get a call from the place where I ordered it from because some high and mighty employee decided to rip into me for putting that on the mug. I told him that was my friends initials and insisted they make the mug anyway.

Hey they have every right to name their kids whatever they want. But come on, a mullet? It's 2008 I thought this was an article from 1983 when I saw photos of that kid.

I don't think Nazis are a protected class.

That is awesome, you should call back and see if they will do a mug with +++++++++ on it!

I had no idea they'd block that word out. I'll make it more clear his name is Frank A. and the last name starts with a G.

Did I miss the constitutional amendment granting us the right to cake?

I can't see why anyone would have a problem with a business refusing to do that.

Eh. Given the names that kids these days use for their online identities, the parents were just giving them a headstart.

Part of me is glad they didn't make the dad a cake because the name was a stupid idea, but on the other hand not making the cake is really only punishing the kid who really didn't have any choice in what his name is.

I'm shocked that this Holocaust Denier just also happens to be a Neo-Nazi.

And obviously, the kid already knows something is up with the name because he runs, hides, and won't answer when asked.

Wait a minute...Hitler is his MIDDLE name - who the heck puts their middle name on a cake? Could the cake simply have said "Happy Birthday, Adolf". For all anyone knows, the kid could be named after Adolf Burger.

No doubt the reason they insisted the kid's whole name be on the cake.

When I was a kid, I never had a cake with my whole name on it. Waaaah, my rights were violated! Somebody give me some cash to make it all better!
