Nazis forbade apes from using the Heil Hitler salute

In Nazi Germany, it was decreed that “Heil Hitler!” should be the mandatory greeting in all public buildings, so an entertainer had an idea: he taught his chimpanzees to extend their arms in a Nazi salute every time they saw someone in uniform.

This was quickly followed by a directive forbidding apes from using the greeting -under penalty of death.
