For the “markets in everything” file:
Anger Room customers are offered a selection of baseball bats, golf clubs, tennis rackets, crowbars, and, if they’re feeling particularly creative, mannequin arms and legs. What they do with those weapons is up to them. The Anger Room is equipped with a tantalizing array of non-living things to destroy, like TVs, computer monitors, and office furniture. It’s a controlled environment where customers can freely act like psychopaths, taking out their frustrations on anything within smashing distance.
That’s a, uh, creative way to beat the recession.
