The CELL 2.0: Our top 15 new acronyms for Denver's just-renamed terrorism Disneyland

The CELL: The Center for Empowered Living and Learning, the super-creepy Denver terrorism museum, has a new name. Now it's The CELL: The Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab, which makes it no less super creepy.

We didn't think the new moniker had the right ring, though, so we came up with a bunch of other things "The CELL" could stand for.

Here's our fifteen favorites, in no particular order. Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comment section below. Because if we can't come up with stupid names for stupid museums, the terrorist have already won.
