Cinderella and Suicide

Filed under: Rambles — lmwalker @ 4:46 pm

A Hong Kong official said one of the territory’s tiny islands could make a killing with a novel theme park based on its unsavoury reputation as a suicide spot, a media report said on Tuesday . . .

Councillor Lam Kit-sing said the island should capitalise on the grisly reputation of one of its holiday homes, where 20 people have taken their lives in the past eight years. Another five people attempted suicide there.

Lam believes the macabre park could be an added attraction for the millions of people expected in the city when Hong Kong Disneyland opens in September.

This could just be my crazy world, but I don’t see mom and dad trundling their little Mickey-Moused bundles of joy off to a suicide resort . . . unless It’s a Small World After All was broken down for one too many hours.

But perhaps I am just a traditionalist.
