The going rate for Hitler dancers

A Brazilian judge with the obviously Portuguese name of Kalichszteim will fine the team behind the proposed Holocaust-themed Rio Carnival float $28,000 for each dancer on the float dressed as Hitler.  The organizers behind the float now have to weigh the eternal question:  how many Hitler dancers do you need versus how many Hitler dancers can you afford?  Addendum.  I have a cheaper solution:  simply ‘reposition’ the dead bodies as Ukrainians, spend a bit more money on bigger mustaches, and say the dances are actually Stalin dancers.  Nobody will complain.
