The Federal Bureau of Amusement

A forgotten aspect of the FDR’s New Deal program, the FBA was created in 1934 to administer the equal and fair allotment of fun and good times to those who had been down in the dumps for awhile, culminating in the Great Cookout of 1936, the Wireless Bingo Program, and the Raging Kegger of ’39.  It still exists, providing bowling, skeeball, arcade games, rollerskating and mini-golf in its snazzy headquarters.

The Rather Impressive Front Doors

By direct presidential order from Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the Federal Bureau of Amusement was ordered to relocate to the metropolis of Seraph City.  Postal Autogyros were employed to lift up the building and its stores of amusitanium-sulfide to transfer to its new location in Seraph City , not far from the overhead rail and a golf ball’s throw from the upscale Sonatta Morales retail store.  Come explore, try out a few games, and win one for the gipper, or your honey, or yourself.

Bowling Beauty!


Two full levels of Mini-Golf.
For a better score, wear knickers and a jaunty cap.

After working up an appetite, do try the lunch counter! Ceejay recommends the BLT sandwich (heavy on the B, just enough T and only a trace of L) with a chocolate cone for dessert.  Yummy!

The newest social gathering point in Seraph City!
Mind that Laughing Sailor in the background, he’s hysterical.
