LOL... And In Related 'Monopoly' News...

Monopoly is sending a game piece to jail, permanently
By Lauren Sullivan, TODAY.com
1/9/13



<snip>

Monopoly is sending one of its tokens directly to jail forever without passing go, without collecting $200.

The iconic board game is asking its Facebook fans to vote for their favorite game piece, including the car, thimble, boot, Scottie dog, battleship, hat, iron and wheelbarrow.

The one that receives the fewest votes will be voted off the board next month.

As of Jan. 9, the dog and the car have garnered the most support. Fans of the wheelbarrow and hat may need to select a new game piece.

But out with the old and in with the new: Monopoly will replace the shunned piece with a cat, diamond ring, guitar, helicopter or toy robot.

4. The thimble has never made sense as a game piece.

5. I think the thimble was the least chosen

when we played growing up. Everyone loved the dog!

7. I think the wheelbarrow is doomed.

It's the one piece that would never stay upright.
