Bruce Lee to get own theme park

from the bbc:

Bruce Lee to get own theme park

The park will feature a statue of Lee - who died 34 years ago - as well as a memorial hall and martial arts academy.

Newspaper reports in China have put the estimated cost of the park at 200 million Chinese Yuan (£13m).

But fan club chairman Wong Yiu-keung told The Associated Press he was not sure who is funding the planned park.

A ceremony to mark the laying of foundations at the park in Shunde, near Hong Kong, was held on Sunday, attended by Lee's younger brother Robert and actress Betty Ting Pei.

Lee was born in the US but first shot to fame in Hong Kong, where he had moved as a child.

His most famous films include Fist of Fury, Enter the Dragon and Game of Death.

the park promises to honour and immerse wary visitors in these 3 film legends in unusual , innovative ways:

apparently as soon as you enter, you will be kicked in the face 3 times in less than a second, followed by an appeal to use heroin more safely using a giant multi-screened showing entitled 'chasing the dragon'. the visitor will then visit a mock white-house, pretend to be george bush, stand blindfolded in the oval office, and using a plastic hammer, play 'whack-a-mole' with 'taxes', 'gun control', and 'the middle east'.

Hi Nutty,
I have to ask you sincerely,
Is the last para a joke?
Where do get these stories?
Or are you secretly a satirist...
