Cordoba House

Something I had never considered before- seeing as the Cordoba House (variously known as the "Ground Zero Mosque" or Park51) is being built on Park Place, this could very well interfere with a cultural icon dear to the hearts of many Americans.

Anyone who has ever played the game Monopoly knows that Park Place is one of the most expensive properties, and hence arguably one of the most important. If the Cordoba House is built on Park Place, it might very well be seen as an attempt to take over the beloved game of Monopoly.

Those evil Muslims.

(Disclaimer: if you did not get the sarcasm inherent in this post, you really should go get some sleep, and then come back and reread it.)

It's a serious subject . . . but I found that amusing. :P

It's good to see that people at various locations of the political spectrum find this whole ordeal foolish. Great post.

I think that before they decided to build the Cordoba House (which is actually a community center, NOT a Mosque), Park Place was a Sears or something. Just sayin'.

Park51 is planned to be at the site of a former Burlington Coat Factory. The building currently there has been in disuse since 9/11, as there was structural damage during the attack and in the aftermath, and the Cordoba Intiative, to my understanding, acquired the building at a bargain price. ^.^
