He did what now
12 days ago
Came into it. Ejaculated if you will.
Nothin says ‘fuck the 3rd Reich’ like cumin on the nazi flag
TIL I despise my socks.
Mein comfy socks.
Someone put this thread on r/cursedcomments
Am I too late to be in the screenshot?
Tuesday's internet winner.
Yeah! That's a spicey retaliation!
That sounds like Also Raine talking
A classic case of Nazi it cumming
Looks like someone wiped their ass with it
What’s it like not having sense of humor?
While possible, and unless overlooked, I highly doubt this ended up at goodwill..
A soggy SS party.
It’s his “happy flag”
...as the lord cummeth
Some girls get tagged by all the dudes who have "liberated" them, too.
He’s big into thrifting, met a guy who found this flag and apparently all of the signatures are the soldiers that took this flag/base? Looking to get more info if possible.
You should check with the people over at r/history. They may be able to help you.
Your friend might contact the Holocaust Memorial Museum to see if they are interested or can give some info about further research to do on your own.
He won 3 Piston Cups!
Pwwffewwww. HE DID WHAT IN HIS CUP?
Totally underrated movie line...
Sounds like the trucker's ball door prize...
It's a triple whammy of things vexillologists hate:
1) Nazi flags
2) Writing on flags
3) Crusty flags
he came into something historic.
Right?! I was already looking for the stains.
Just use a sock like everyone else .. damn
He "came into it"? That's disgusting.
Alright I’ve definitely used the wrong words.
I really hope you haven't told people you've "came into" anything else.
"I'm sorry officer, I just came into the women's jacket".
I’m sure I’ve fucked this up on many occasions. I had it in my head that maybe someone would use it in the sense, oh someone died so I came into some money. Idk I didn’t think it was that weird until this post and I see literally everyone relating it to cum.
"Came into money" is a quite specific phrase.
So is “I came in to a sock”
Only if you're too poor to buy tissues. Or a filthy person.
So, come into = found?
Found/inherited in my lexicon haha.
It’s used for inherited but people don’t usually use it for “bought at a store”
let me try it... I was at Walmart yesterday and came into a gallon of whole milk. Yea you are right that doesn't work.
Nah, it works fine. For example, I came into a muffin this morning.
Feels like you are skipping a few key words. "Came into ownership of" works better.
It didn't even occur to me. Reddit should not be regarded as an appropriate sounding board for polite society.
Did someone say sounding?
The expression is "I came across a ____"
Or "I came by a _____
Honestly the first one is just as easily misinterpreted (especially on purpose).
...or "came into" if you're talking about inheritance.
It is appropriate to use "come into" for an inheritance.
Now he's having a go at the money!
No you didnt. Reddit and the internet are just immature.
I refuse to apologize. Huh huh, he said "came".
Nah - you did fine. I knew what you meant.
yes, the correct word is on to it. "the big brown fox came on the nazi flag"
You havent, english is just a shite language where everything has 5 meanings and most words have sexual ones.
Another group of them damn Anitfa!
Are we still doing "Phrasing"?
always and forever
It’s like the surgeon and team signing a tumor
Thank you for the title.
Damn. I’m an idiot. I did not get all the jokes at first...I do now though
Personally I will only come into a Union Jack, whilst singing god save the Queen and saluting with my free hand.
*as is tradition.
A great day for Canada, and also the World.
If it’s Canada he’s gotta be wearing a toque eating a beaver tail in one hand and a case of 2 4s in the other hand
A “posh wank”.
A requirement of British citizenship.
Pinky out, good sir?
My thoughts exactly: Amateur wanker.
I also choose this guy’s nation’s flag.
Lean in and think of England

I can see being excited to see a piece of history but that's a little extreme and honestly kind of rude of them.
edit: It's a joke about 'came into' meaning 'ejaculating into' you fucking idiots, jesus. 'Them' = 'my friend', not the American soldiers who captured the flag. Welcome to Reddit.
Wasn't there a box of tissues nearby? Or a sock?
The only acceptable Nazi flag to hang on your wall
I wouldn't hang it on my wall. I don't want to have to explain it every time I have a guest over like an awkward episode of curb your enthusiasm.
These two comments were my first and second thought seeing this post.
I have an armband my great-uncle brought back as war spoils and have NO idea what to do with it. If I hide it, it may look like I'm a closet Nazi. If I display it, it definitely looks like I'm a closet Nazi. So it sits in the box of family history documents until I figure it out.
If you're concerned, you can always donate it to a museum or the historical society of the town you great-uncle lived in, it could be displayed in a museum setting with a benefactor who donated it along with story.
Cool... so how do you show that off without people misinterpreting it?
Buy literally anything you find related to ww2 and show people everything at once I guess?
Surround it in photos of famous Jewish people.
Someone might think it's a hit list.
Surround it in photos of famous dead Jewish people?
Now that I think about it... that could be worse.
It is what it is. My family has a Nazi flag my grandfather captured from a city hall about 20 miles outside of Berlin. They fought and took the town and he liberated it from outside the hall and brought it back. It's not like we fly it on the flagpole on arbor day.
Put a sign in VERY BIG letters next to it explaining the significance
'I came on this flag'.
If he wanted he could reach out to a veterans group associated with their unit. I used to talk with a ball turret gunner at the airport pretty much everyday (he had awesome stories, shot down twice in Yugoslavia etc etc). Someone in his wing was unable to find a photo of the nose art on his b17. I eventually found an image after much research and sent it to an organization associated with his crew. The surviving members and their families were ecstatic.
Should've burned the piece of shit.
Ok, now that's cool.
The only appropriate reason to display a Nazi Flag imo
museums and historical films like inglorious bastards?
...which is better than the soldiers coming into him...
Well, I upvoted a Nazi flag. That's... Interesting.
All in a days work around here
That is not a statement one makes lightly.... Weird
Pawn stars guy will give you 50 bucks for it and he's stretching cuz has to pay staff and frame it.
He would have to speak to his buddy first
Probably a little disrespectful to cum all over the names of those soldiers?
That is bad ass. That is the only piece of Nazi iconography I would keep.
I remember as a kid, my dad (history professor) had lots of authentic memorabilia of many kinds from many different periods. But he also had a couple authentic Nazi arm bands from 1940. He used his memorabilia in his classes, but he never used the arm bands for anything. They just sat in his closet, until one day we took them into the backyard and burned them. He said “I got them so long ago, but the longer I had them the more I couldn’t stand having them in my house.” He knew that what he had wasn’t “living history”, it didn’t give useful context or understanding. It was just a piece of Nazi nostalgia, and it needed to be destroyed.
This flag on the other hand, is RICH with context and information. Seriously super cool.
Donating to a historical organization would be a good way to ensure it stays in proper context.
Lots of historical organizations have no use for or interest in Nazi iconography. Because again, unless it’s adding context, it isn’t history. It’s Nazi nostalgia.
It’s not like people don’t know what the arm band looks like, and seeing one in person doesn’t add anything to your understanding or knowledge.
I agree but I was talking about donating the flag not the armband.
Ooooh. Sorry I misunderstood. Yes 100% he should donate this.
No worries it was pretty clear we weren't the same page based on your response. Hope you have a nice day.
Same to you!
it isn’t history. It’s Nazi nostalgia.
it isn’t history. It’s Nazi nostalgia.
"History" is an umbrella term comprising past events as well as the memory, discovery, collection, organization, presentation, and interpretation of these events. Historians seek knowledge of the past using historical sources such as written documents, oral accounts, art and material artifacts, and ecological markers.
hasnt even been a century and nazi deniers and neo nazis are a thing. history is not just the things we want to be remembered for but humanity's sins and failures. you can not learn from the history that is destroyed and forgotten. history of evil is still history and should be preserved so in a thousand generations we will still remember and say "never again".
Absolute nonsense. If you think people won’t remember World War 2 or the Crimes of the Nazis unless they can see an authentic Nazi armband, then I don’t think you understand history at all.
There is plenty of Nazi related items and documents that add context and information, and should be and are preserved.
An arm band doesn’t do that
I cant read all the names, but if you can spot a 'Rocco John' or RJ, please DM me.
Aside from that, cool, and remember to punch nazis really hard
Why not use a sock like a normal person...?
Look like 317th Infantry Regiment, which would be in the 80th infantry division. The regiment still exists, might be cool to send them some photos of it.
To pile on this, if they have a regimental museum they might be interested I having this as a piece, if your buddy is willing to loan it out
Does this flag make him Horny?
Get it framed with UV filtering glass so it won't degrade. (Early holiday gift? Crowd-sourced fundraise?)
Something that badass needs to be properly preserved!
Risky display item.
who else couldnt find the stain lmao
Literally the only time it's acceptable to hang a flag like this in your house
You should try to find these soldiers!
Far be it for me to tell your friend what to come into
I think you’re looking for “came across” lmao, still a funny title tho
OK just to clarify your friend inherited a Nazi flag signed by the American soldiers that captured it? Is it from a relative or some thing that was one of the men who capture the flag in battle? Is there more to the story more context would be interesting if you can provide it?
Day 15, still searching for the cumstain
When we inherited my wife’s grandmother’s house we had to clean it out. Her cousin’s were in town who never would come to town and they wanted to help for the day. Amongst all of the old boxes and love letters from WW2, we found a nazi flag one of her soldiers sent (US soldier to be clear). Sure enough the shit head cousins wanted it and I couldn’t really argue it because we got a house. It was the one time seeing a nazi flag was awesome. I would’ve really liked to have that piece of history, no matter how dark it was.
Can I request an NSFW so I don’t scare my colleagues shirtless when I accidentally unlock my phone on this post during a meeting?
Oh wait, too late.
IASiP taught me this won't end well
Probably what I would have done too tbh
There's been a lot of people finding seemingly innocent reasons to post nazi stuff recently.
Looks to include several companies from possibly different battalions, or select companies of a single battalion. Depending on what companies there are it might be worth more. I'd estimate anywhere between 2500 to 5k. Very nice find, and shocked it ended up thrifting.
EDIT: u/Root_boi - Ask for some more HQ images. I'm interested in researching it. - I collect WW2 memorabilia. Happy to add some insight if possible.
Here’s some additional photos.
Great - And as other's have mentioned, it's 317th. I dug up a really great thesis on their INF unit. - An interesting read! https://web.archive.org/web/20160303230859/http://etd.lsu.edu/docs/available/etd-0710103-051947/unrestricted/Dominique\_thesis.pdf
Filthy bastard. Why didn’t he use a Kleenex?
Jesus use a tissue man
The only acceptable time to have a nazi flag.
“Came into an inheritance” is presumably the phrase you have adapted. It would make more sense to say “My friend inherited a Nazi flag…” this would have avoided the jokes…
I wonder how some of these men would react if they saw their children and grandchildren storming the Capitol and posting memes about Dear Leader and bitching about having to wear a piece of cloth in order to protect their friends and neighbors...
Thanks. I hate it.
He did whaaat? Wtf
American soldiers that captured it
American soldiers that captured it
And not a single giant hairy dicks drawn on it...
Fantastic! If your friend is willing to sell, we’d put it in our museum here in New Jersey
Thats a really good find . I don’t understand why people don’t like this type of thing . Its history . Why can we not accept it for its intrinsic interest and not what it stands for . There is a healthy market in this type of stuff , but for its historical value and interest . Doesn’t make you a Nazi if you own history . Many things from the past are in museums and collections just as bad as the makers of this flag but are accepted as they are not recent .
I wanna say “burn it”, but realistically it should be in a museum.
Indiana Jones approves
Idk what I would do with it considering it is a Nazi flag and all. I'd probably fold it so only the circle bit shows and put it behind glass in a coffee or cafe table. No matter what you do it'll certainly be a conversation piece.
Idk, it is tough to say. If I was someone that had some sort of collection of world war II memorabilia it'd be a whole lot easier than just having a random swastika in my house I'd have to explain every time someone that didn't know saw it.
Museum time for this bad boy, lest we forget the pain of fascism.
Too late =(
Damn, give us a pic under a blacklight. No kink shaming
Should of used a tissue.
The county museum in my hometown has a Nazi flag as well. It was brought here from Germany by someone in our town. It's on display, calling special attention to the stains where the soldiers wiped their boots on it.
A thats pritty cool
B thats the only nazi flage that can be hunge on a wall and you not get weird looks for lol
Poor choice of words
That’s pretty cool.
Fucking awesome I love that. Go to hell Nazis
Perhaps you meant 'across' instead of 'into'?
"Came into" means he acquired it somehow.
John T Fabian is the first name I saw, here is his obituary.
Now I'm even more curious about the story of this flag. No mention in his obituary about having served overseas. Was it a flag one of his mates brought back? Was it one he and other state-siders acquired to commemorate their contribution to the war effort? Something else?
All the ejaculatory jokes aside, that is a brilliant find. A real treasure, probably really valuable.
why does the swastika look so uneven?
Probably the only nazi flag that's appropriate to hang up somewhere in your house
There's an exception to every rule. This is a Swastika flag that can and should be displayed, as long as appropriate context is given(as you did here).
if he did..i would understand
Should've used tissue. Should've gone Specsavers.
You mean those Antifa guys?
Different choice of words please
I know a man who has the flag that flew outside the gates of Buchenwald. Just being in the presence of these things sends a weird mix of fear and sadness. Weird fact the man who lowered the flag and kept it had the first name of Adolf.
The best kind of Nazi Flag. One taken in combat by the victorious forces.
Back when America was great and almost everyone was Antifa
Such a conflicting piece of history, on one side it's a nazi flag and stands for so much hate while also commentates the heroics of a lot of men who faced a lot of horrible crap to capture it. I think if it were me I'd be on the side of trying to track down if any of the companies or battalions have museums that are interested in it.
