OT: How to annoy Hitler

A story told by one of Hitler's adjutants who has just died:

"He also told the German newspaper how he was dismissed by Hitler over a
bizarre incident involving a fly.
The fly had been buzzing around the room during a strategy conference in
July 1944, irritating the Nazi leader.
Hitler ordered Mr Darges to get rid of it, but the SS adjutant suggested
that as it was an "airborne pest" the job should go to Luftwaffe adjutant,
Nicolaus von Below."

I think it was rather a good joke myself. I guess the Austrians don't share
the famous German sense of humour.
