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.

Contrived Engine of Like-minded Loons

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
