Nazi and Imperial Japanese symbols on public train cars in 2015—no one should be offended about that, right?
Amazon has asked New York's public transit to remove an ad campaign promoting the company's new alternate history TV series The Man in the High Castle after severe backlash from the public, according to Mashable.
The campaign, meant to show what a train car would look like if the United States lost WWII, used Nazi emblems and Japanese Imperial imagery on seats.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has called the ads offensive.
"While these ads technically may be within MTA guidelines, they're irresponsible and offensive to World War II and Holocaust survivors, their families, and countless other New Yorkers," he said in a statement.
"Amazon should take them down."
There is some serious thirst for Arnold, and it isn't coming all from Helga Pataki this time.
Lane Toran voiced the main character Arnold on Nickelodeon classic Hey Arnold during the first season. Now, he's a model and actor living in Los Angeles.
And the Internet has discovered he's a very, very good looking bearded man.
Here's Toran doing his thang on the very first episode of Hey Arnold!, which debuted on October 7, 1996.
And here's what he looks like now...

If you watch Regular Show on Cartoon Network, you're probably aware of a character that goes by the name of GBF, an acronym for Garrett Bobby Ferguson or Giant Bearded Face.
The character is a giant head with tiny arms and legs that cheats at video games and explodes when he loses.
What you might not know is that this character is based on a real-life person, and he's not happy about this portrayal.
According to Eurogamer, actual Garrett Bobby Ferguson, who holds the world record on Donkey Kong and was the first to reach 1 million points on Ms. Pacman, had his lawsuit against Cartoon Network thrown out.
Mitchell objected to this portrayal and so launched a lawsuit against Cartoon Network for damages.
But the legal challenge has now been thrown out by New Jersey Federal District Judge Anne Thompson.
"The television character does not match the plaintiff in appearance," Thompson ruled (via AP). "GBF appears as a non-human creature, a giant floating head with no body from outer space, while Plaintiff is a human being.
"And when GBF loses his title, the character literally explodes, unlike Plaintiff."
GBF will live to explode another day.
Jeopardy has had its fair share of strange and interesting contestants this year.
But none has brought forth the wrath of the Internet like Laura Ashby and her interesting vocal fry.
Really, the Internet kind of hates her...a lot.
But at least she has a sense of humor about it. She's won over $36,802, and is still going strong.
Haterz gonna hate.
48 chicken nuggets, 2,256 calories, no regrets.
McDonald's in Japan is planning on offering a 48-piece chicken nugget meal. The United States currently offers a 40-piece, so maybe this doesn't seem like a big deal.
But it is. Because the largest current chicken nugget meal in Japan is a 15-piece.
Likewise, the offer is for a limited time only. It's available only in Niigata Prefecture and part of a promotional tie-up with the the newly launched pop group NGT48, the Niigata-based spin-off of the massively popular idol unit AKB48. The groups tend to have around 48 members (sometimes more, sometimes less), divided up into different teams. That's a lot of idols. That's okay, this is a lot of nuggets. Forty-eight nuggets is surely a whole chicken, no? Fifty has to be.
King Curtis is very happy with this decision.
