i hate malls. whenever i wind up in one i feel like i'm going to get a panic attack.
i remember as a kid, though, in tacoma there was this real trashy mall where they had a chicken in a box where you put in a quarter and it would play tic-tac-toe with you. after the chicken (always) won, a bit of bird feed that would slide down a chute to it.
they also had a fucking gorilla in the mail, too! it was the most depressing fucking thing you ever saw - this giant, depressed gorilla sitting on a tire swing in a dirty plexiglass box in the middle of a shopping mall. i read that the authorities finally stepped in and he got transferred to a zoo in atlanta, but he spent over 20 years in that mall with white trash idiots harassing him banging on the glass. even as a little kid, it made me sick.
