German anatomy lesson

Here, from today’s Guardian letters,  is one that delighted Malcolm:

Thank you for pointing out that a photograph of Nazis, first identified as Hitler, Himmler, Goering and Hoess, in fact depicted Hitler, Goebbels, Himmler and Hess – whom I believe used to scull in the river at Dresden (Corrections and clarifications, 25 May). I, too, have difficulty telling my arses from my Elbe-rowers.
Fr Alec Mitchell

Surely one for the Guardian Bedside annual, 2012.
