Michael Graves, one of America’s most influential postmodern architects, is somewhat amused he is now Internet famous for a completely unintentional design—the so-called Hitler teapot.
Graves said he can’t see the dictator’s silhouette, but he does see the excellent sales figures.

The teapot is one of the centerpiece items of JC Penney‘s relaunch of its home goods category, featuring designs from Graves, Jonathan Adler,Terence Conran and Martha Stewart.
When a giant picture of the teapot last month landed on a JC Penney billboard next to the San Diego Freeway, drivers started posting pictures online, saying it looked like Hitler.
