American Amusement Park To Open In Baghdad

OK, ok, go ahead and point out that Baghdad has some problems. Sure, they have a strained police force, a damaged infrastructure, tension in the streets and a dearth of alcohol. But you know what they really need? That's right, their very own Six Flags!

A California company is working to turn a 50-acre swath of land in Baghdad into an amusement park, complete with rides, a skateboard park, a zoo, a concert theater and a museum, according to a report in the Thursday edition of the Times of London.
Attractions are sure to include a Buried Mine Ride, The Great Devil Drop, BlixKrieg, Tower of Terrorists and everybody's favorite, that wacky Shamu.

    "Genocide Ride"
    Nice. In honor of Saddam I suppose it would be Kurd Curdling.
