Top 11 Replacements for Camp Snoopy at the Mall of America

It’s the end of an era for the Mall of America. After being unable to reach a deal with United Media, the indoor amusement park at the MOA is no longer known as Camp Snoopy and gone are any references to Peanuts characters, including the landmark giant inflatable Snoopy. But we view this not as a loss, but as an opportunity. Here are the top 11 replacements candidates for Camp Snoopy:

11. Camp Brokeback Mountain with giant inflatable sheep

10. Camp Gitmo North with a giant inflatable toilet for flushing giant inflatable Korans
9. Camp Camp – featuring the B-52s, 60's TV show style Batman and Robin, etc...

8. Camp Bill Clinton with a giant inflatable [sorry, if you want the rest, you will have to subscribe to the uncensored version of Nihilist in Golf Pants available on Sirius Satellite Radio]

7. Concentration Camp – based on the classic TV game show!

6. Camp Taxpayers League with a giant inflatable David Strom

5. Refugee Camp – with a giant inflatable Tom Petty

4. Camp Minnesota Vikings (must be 18 or older to take the boat ride)

3. Camp Mayor Rybak with a giant inflatable gay men's chorus float suitable for stage diving

2. Camp Mayor Chris Coleman with a giant inflatable hob-nailed boot crushing a small businessman

1. Camp Kennedy with a giant inflatable bottle of scotch and featuring the world famous Chappaquiddick flume ride where you're guaranteed to get wet

I've actually been to the MOA on a visit to Minneapolis, so I am sorry to hear Camp Snoopy is gone.

Camp American Idol - with giant inflatable Simon Cowell that sings....badly

Camp Lileks - with a giant, inflatable jello mold made with rabbit meat on an orange shag carpet, and the kids get punished if they haven't gone to the bathroom by the end of the Constipation Choo Choo ride

( I hope you guys have read James' books or the above will make absolutely no sense at all and you'll think I'm nuts.......)
