Farewell Iron! I hate cats.

Monopoly’s Iron Game Piece Goes to Jail; New Cat Piece Collects $200

http://www.vanityfair.com/online/daily/2013/02/Monopolys-Iron-Game-Piece-Goes-to-Jail-New-Cat-Piece-Collects-200



Quote:
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.

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

I guess the thimble only.

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.

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.

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.
