Farewell Iron! I hate cats.
 
Monopoly’s Iron Game Piece Goes to Jail; New Cat Piece Collects $200

The children’s and obnoxiously competitive adult’s treasured board game of Monopoly will replaced its (apparently deeply, viscerally hated?) iron game piece with a tiny, silvern cat. The changes were the result of an Facebook contest concerning which piece should go and which piece should replace it. In other words, breaking: Internet heavily favors cat.

The options for other potential replacement pieces included only a “helicopter, robot, diamond ring, and acoustic guitar,” per The Los Angeles Times. But would the cat have been so popular with online voters if they could have voted for, say, the word “FIRST!”? Or a guy singing Sade to his pet? A topless Kate Upton figurine? An Onion article about Joe Biden? That gymnast with the sassy smile from the most recent Olympics? Or Hillary Clinton texting? What we’re asking is: did the cat win some sort of Internet-meme primary before entering the general election?
My stupid cat does nothing but **** and puke all over my apt like it's some kind of giant litterbox. What a horrible turn of events in history.

Cats are overrated.

Dogs > Cats

After getting rid of the iron, what are women supposed to use now?

I guess the thimble only.

Wow, I am devastated.

Not much of a surprise there. :laugh:

Really I've used the iron every Monopoly game I've ever played that I can remember. It started with me and my cousins playing and there were only 4 pieces to choose from. I took the iron and have had much success with it since. If I come across a new set I will use the cat.

The spinning wheel perhaps?

I think what you mean to say is you get automatic dibs on the cat ;)

Personally while the cannon/ship/car were cooler I always had good luck with the shoe.

My second fave token after the dog. I voted the thimble, no one ever used it. Happy to have a cat to choose from though.

Poor Iron. :(

Cat people were jealous that there was a dog.

MetalheadPenguinsFan 02-07-2013 10:37 AM

Nothing is sacred anymore...sheesh. :shakehead

Bubba Thudd 02-07-2013 01:23 PM

should add the robot, helicopter, and guitar, too.

dump the thimble, spinning wheel, and wheel barrow.

RayP 02-07-2013 01:26 PM

The woman always uses the iron. Will definitely be throwing our old edition away to replace with the new and improved one. **** the iron, worthless POS.

beowulf 02-07-2013 01:32 PM

Wonder what Jee thinks. If I recall a massive collector of Monopoly games. Was it Jee?

weaponomega 02-07-2013 02:17 PM

I am always the car.
