Is this a reference to Godwin's Law? Saibot84 (talk) 21:59, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

An ironic one, possibly. --Qwach (talk) 13:54, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

I think the title-text joke is mainly in the word "hardly" instead of "not" when describing the hitler-y-ness of the beta. -- Gigahertz (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)


I don't know but look at this: hitlery. It really seems that it belong to Hillary Clinton. Look at Goooogle: Hitler-y. This has to be explained, even for non US citizens. --Dgbrt (talk) 21:03, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

I added some description clarifying the implied Hitler reference. I believe it has to do with Adolf Hitler because it has a hyphen before the "Y" implying a general characteristic description rather than a nickname. --themacman33 (talk)
I can't imagine the use of "Hitler-y" here, especially with the hyphen, is used to mean anything other than "Hitler-like". --Alex (talk) 23:09, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
The entry given was created by author "anti-communist/anti-fascist" who also wrote definitions for the terms "kkk" and "gay marriage." Not only were the entries written eight years ago, they were also written down the same day. It seems obvious that said author took that day to spread his own personal political views, and should not be treated as normal day-to-day speech. Furthermore, there is no other reference to Hilary Clinton in this strip. I am removing the incomplete tag from this explanation. If the need is felt to restore it, please give a more justifiable reason. Jimmy C (talk) 02:13, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
I think it's pretty clear that Hitler-y is simply the way Randall adjectived Hitler. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I'm pretty sure that this is a reference to a German play called The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui (Der aufhaltsame Aufstieg des Arturo Ui). It's a satirical allegory about Hitler, where Hitler's name in the play is Ui. 12:04, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
