What's next — gulag resorts?

Actually, the idea of Gulag resorts has been around for several years:

(from an article titled Club Gulag: tourists are offered prison camp experience in the Independent August, 2006)

[The mayor of Vorkuta Russia]'s idea, which has upset survivors of the prison camp, envisages recreating a tiny part of the Gulag complete with watchtowers, guards armed with paintball guns, snarling dogs, rolls of barbed wire, spartan living conditions - and forced labour.

Other possibilities --

Ronzoni's new pasta:
Mussolini spaghettini

Japanese junk food:
Hirohito's Fritos

A demonstration for medical care reform in the Philippines:
Bataan Health March
