I am not making this up

From Reuters: "Theme Park Calls off 'Muslim Fun Day'"

"Britain's biggest theme park has called off the country's first 'National Muslim Fun Day' because of lack of interest, the park said Wednesday.

"Alton Towers in central England was to open on September 17 for Muslims -- with halal food, a strict dress code and prayer areas.

"Music, gambling and alcohol were to be banned for the day and theme park rides such as 'Ripsaw,' 'Corkscrew' and 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' all segregated by sex."

Strict dress code, prayer, no music, no gambling, no alcohol and no boys and girls playing together. Sounds like a fun day to me. :)

'A' for effort, 'F' for clue factor.

Wow.
