Submitter’s comments: It is meant to be a site about history but has all that unnecessary, jarring gumpf.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: I had never run across the word “gumpf” before. Love it. “Random junk.” I think it’s a subset of Over-the-top Web Design. There are OTT websites that have a consistent theme and then there are Gumpf OTT—or GOTT websites—as in “Mein GOTT.”
There’s way too much crammed on one ugly page. I’m not sure they’ve licensed the likenesses of Clint Eastwood are Arnold Schwarzenegger and it’s just plan horrible looking, which is a shame because I really liked the Anglo-Saxon English class I took and to have these representatives screw it up is a bit sad.
Oh, the site is mildly NSFW (I think). Depends on how politically correct your company is and how much bathing suits offend. On the other hand, there might be worse pictures. Dunno because I have no reason to stay on the site.
