Titanic II: Exact Replica Of Doomed Liner To Sail

An Aussie firm is building a new cruise ship based specifically on the design of RMS Titanic. It will offer all the luxury features of the original ocean liner, and is expected to carry its first passengers in 2018. We can only hope the liner will avoid icebergs in its maiden voyage.

If the plan to duplicate the disaster ship proves successful, what’s next? How about Delightful Dachau, a fun resort extravaganza based on the WW2 concentration camp. A Broadway musical of the attack on the World Trade Center, Manhattan Crashin’?

An all dancing, singing and shaking version of the exciting San Francisco earthquake, Rockin’ and Rollin’ in Frisco? A romantically tuneful offering based on Europe’s Bubonic Plague, The Mucus Man?
