Hitler might not have survived internet mockery, Nobel prize winner says

In his speech Sunday accepting the Nobel Prize in literature, French writer Jean Marie Gustav Le Clezio suggested that Nazi leader Adolf Hitler might not have been able to survive for long if the internet had existed in his day, saying "Hitler's criminal plot would not have succeeded - ridicule might have prevented it from ever seeing the light of day."

The story is illustrated with an example of what that mockery might have looked like: an lol-hitler, if you will, with the caption "I Can Has Sudentenland?" (A reference, of course, to the classic lolcat site ICanHasCheezburger.)
