This was the most offensive idea in my ideas file. I'd been holding off cause I wasn't sure how people would react to "Oberleutnant Goldstein".
But I figured what the hell. It's not like anything bad can happen from offending people with a comic.
ADDENDUM: After one day of it being up, and reading emails about it, I was suprised to learn that not a lot of people were offended, but a whole lot of people just didn't get it. So to clarify: The set-up is that Andy was in hell for not following his own moral beliefs. The punch line is a Jewish Nazi, which is the ultimate extreme of not following your own moral code. It's the same formula as This strip. Something is explained, then an absurd example is done as a punchline.
