There was some German joke:

Blonde like Hitler
Slim like Goering
Sharp eyed like Himmler
and athletic like Goebbels (he was club footed)
I’ve never heard or seen that statement about Heinrich Himmler.

Do you have a source?

Various attributes were use for Goebbles instead of athletic...Handsome, tall, chaste, etc.

Most of these came from allied propaganda sources.

By all accounts, Goebbels was acually quite a charmer and managed to get his way with quite a few women during the Nazi era.

Yes clubfoot Joseph was the playboy of the Third Reich:

Well being Minister of Propaganda had its uses. As he later was in charge of the German Film Industry, so he had his ways with the good looking female actors or they were kicked out from the industry if "his charm" did not bite on these few Fraüleins.

He was a very intelligent man.

He even managed to have an affair with the Czech actress Lída Baarová.

Seemigly Baarová saw Goebbels charming intelligent individual. But by striking a relationship with Goebbels she got to act on the German Films as she was an Czech and a Slav.

Goebbels wasn't an anti-Slav, he even referred to the Bulgarians as "friends".

No but the other Nazi leaders saw Czechs as Slavs so that's why Goebbels ended his relationship with Baarová on Hitler's orders in 1941.

Goebbels' last name can also be pronounced as "Gow Bells". The first choice you list seems correct.

"Hinweg mit diesen degenerierten Untermenschen!" "Down with these Subhumans!" Dr. Goebbels on the Occasion of the Nuremberg Party Rally in 1935"
Goebbels, who himself was severely disabled, formulated sentences that ultimately led all disabled people to destruction.

The complete insanity, a physically disabled person preached the annihilation of disabled people and so called subhumans.
Completely incomprehensible, the man was really sick, complete madness, total delusion, the end of his family speaks for itself.

Completely incomprehensible, not even in a thousand years in the future, that this fiend has never seen, well!

On my daily walk to the local supermarket, I meet a severely disabled gentleman my age almost every day.
The man can barely walk, but he walks without crutches, putting one foot in front of the other foot...
People turn to look at the man, gawk at him, it's pathetic, nothing has really changed, nothing!


Hans
Yes there is some strange hippocrasy there.

Czechs were regarded as Aryans.

Goebbels didn’t end the relationship because she was a Czech/Slav, he ended it because the whole thing went against what the Nazis told the German people to strive for - a loyal family with lots of children.
