(Newser) – He's blond, blue-eyed, just 3 years old and his name is Adolf Hitler Campbell. Staff at a ShopRite in his New Jersey hometown were so offended by his name that they refused to create a cake with "Happy Birthday Adolf Hitler" written on it, reports the New York Daily News. It's unlikely that will be the last time the name causes trouble.

"Other kids get their cake," said Adolf's dad. "It's not fair to my children. How can a name be offensive?" The family lives in a house festooned with Nazi swastika symbols. Adolf has two sisters, one named Aryan Nation and another named in honor of Hitler's henchman Heinrich Himmler.
