I'd rather live in a converted Minuteman shelter. Santa Ana would never have taken a nuclear missile silo.

I'll take a scaled down replica for $1.35 just so I can pull a Godzilla.

Ozzy should buy it.

Naw, I hear that neighborhood is being overrun with Mexicans.

After 13 days you get attacked by the Mexican Army

Remember when Ozzy pissed on the Alamo and was banned from San Antonio for a decade? Did his time, went back, rocked the place.

Does it include accurate wax representations of the land grabbers getting shot in the back as they tried to run out of it?

You could probably zombie proof it pretty easier, so there's that.

I mean, it would have taken forever to just get past the security code lock.  I mean, you have to go through 100,000,000 possibilities, so you start with all zeros, and then.... *click*?

Came for the Ozzy references.
Leaving satisfied.

The Alamo does have a nice crawl space where they keep the Alamo Christmas decorations, however.
 
2013-11-29 11:26:30 AM
It isn't a true replica until Ozzy pisses on it.

Better check with Jack Flack first, the place might not be safe from spies.

I'm in, but only if it includes tour guide Tina!

Wow Someone doesn't know what really happened in that war do they.

I see they spared no expense in keeping it 100% accurate.

On that fateful day, Davy Crockett woke up and walked from his bunk on the floor of the Alamo up to the observation post on the west wall.

William B. Travis and Jim Bowie were up there already. The three gazed at the hordes of Mexicans moving steadily towards them.

Davy turned to Bowie with a puzzled look on his face and said, "Jim, are we landscaping today?"

Yeah, first of all they were called Texians, and only about 22 were born in Texas. Also, they couldn't surrender, or they'd end up executed by the Mexican army, as everyone in Goliad was when they surrendered. Also, several high ranking people in there were Mexican, like Captain Seguin.

/Tejanos played a large role in the war for independence from Mexico

PS... That's a pretty nice place, in a good location, Alamo facade or not.

Why were there only 5,000 Mexicans at the Alamo?

They only had one pickup truck.

You joke, but the Alamo's front yard was immaculate.

asked "where did all these Mexicans come from?"

Bowie replied "Shift change at Kelly."

Why were there only 2000 Mexicans at the Alamo?

They only had 4 cars.

Why did the Mexicans fight so had to take the Alamo?

To get four clean walls to spray-paint.

An Englishman, Frenchman, Mexican, and Texan were flying across country on a small plane when the pilot comes on the loud speaker and says " We're having mechanical problems and the only way we can make it to the next airport is for 3 of you to open the door and jump, at least one of you can survive" The four open the door and look out below. The Englishman takes a deep breath and hollers "God Save The Queen" and jumps. The Frenchman gets really inspired and hollers "Viva La France" and he also jumps. This really pumps up the Texan so he hollers "Remember the Alamo" and he grabs the Mexican and throws him out of the plane.

They'd never be able to make that scene now. The area around the dinosaurs is all built up with fast food joints.

And, as I understand, the dinosaurs themselves have been taken over by some religious nut.

If you see it on google satellite map, it's more of a dried up river and the dock is drier than hell.

Funny when they show a picture of the real Alamo, they always show it as if its in a country setting, when actually its right smack in the middle of heavily populated  downtown San Antonio.
