Did you find the Prussian Proud Boy in "The Temple" just a little funny?

    I have been filling in stories on my HPL timeline and so reread "The Temple". It is a story that a tended to overlook in the past and have a greater appreciation for it. But, Herr Graff is so over the top in his views that it started making me think of funny Monty Python impersonations. Anyone else feel this way?

    Yes, he is such a stereotypical war-mongering Prussian. I'll bet he has a monocle and duelling scars as well. However, it was fairly typical of the time (or at least it would have been extremely typical during the War).
