Abbottabad — the city where Osama bin Laden was killed — is building an amusement park.

I missed this story back in February. Noticing it now after Googling Abbottabad for the last post.
"This project has nothing to do with Osama bin Laden," [said Syed Aqil Shah, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's minister for tourism and sports], adding: "We are working to promote tourism and amusement facilities."
Imagine a bin Laden-themed amusement park. The mind reels.

Only if he's the target in the shooting gallery.

They could have a big laser-tag arena where you could dress up like Seal Team 6...

The park will be Abbottabad as it gets.

You must be THIS tall to ride the suicide bomber roller coaster.

The arcade with the flight simulators should be a big hit.

"Imagine a bin Laden-themed amusement park. The mind reels."

Really?

I can easily imagine a bin Laden-themed amusement park being popular among the fundamental Islamicists.

I don't like it, but I can imagine it.

Sorta like Obama being president.

There, the mind reels.

But stupid people banded together and made it happen.

So why not a bin Laden-themed amusement park?

The shooting galleries would be epic.

I believe the article states that the park will not be built on the bin Laden compound site, which in any case has been razed, and the project is in no way connected to bin Laden and his al Qaeda?

Hagar, don't be a buzzkill.

Chickelit wins for originality, so far.

I always think of Costello saying "Hey Abottabad!"

Does the local house of ill repute have 72 virgins?

Live stonings. 3,000 rupees per stone, or 2 for 5,000.

What sort of carnie shit for prizes? I don't think they'd understand an etched Black Sabbath mirror.

Tough to guess the weight of women in burkas though. Who knows what lurks underneath?

A video game where you could shoot bin Laden in the head might get some Americans to visit.

Abottabad and Costellopur.

Not any harder to imagine than these perennial tourist favorites.

I wonder if they'll have a Tilt-A-Whirl Exploding Car ride?
