Well, since the hair is an evil, mind controlling alien, I'm sure the swastika isn't THAT unintentional.

Swastikas were around thousands of years before the nazis nicked them. They weren't considered evil at all before that. Quite the opposite.

Well, clearly the alien wig monster hasn't reckoned on the full history of the swastika - the idiot.

MIK your right, I have a small number of Kipling's books ( Rudyard not the cake chap) from pre WWI  and they all have a little swastika on the spine, but the arms are going anti-clockwise, it does confuse some folk

Until about 20 years ago these vans were a common sight on the Southside of Dublin

Indeed, my poor grandmother used to have her laundry done there when I was a nipper (having spent part of her childhood working in a laundry she had a possibly-understandable hatred of doing it herself).  The laundry used to be picked up/delivered at the door in large white bags emblazoned with a swastika, which was a source of fascination and occasional pontification to pre-teen Victor-reader Tord.  The laundry itself had a large chimney, which added to the morbid thrill of it all.

"Then they came for our laundry ....."

Did the drivers wear Brownshirts ?

The poster on the side of the van looks like it has the Sun in the picture.

That's Hitler's little known laundrette. He's only got one, in Ballsbridge.
