I, For One, Welcome Our Feline Monopolistic Overlords

Oh sure, you thought it was just a harmless promotion: Letting the Internet pick a cat as the newest Monopoly token. Well, the new version started shipping, and little did we know that it would be an indestructible robot kitty bent on world domination!

    Monopoly should be used as a psychological test, it’s very revealing of hidden personality traits. Some of my family’s Monopoly money got lost due to children and my mom made some from colored paper to replace it. She also changed some of the rules because she didn’t like them. Now I think about it my quiet, suburban housewife mother had the heart of a Wall St banker, or the Fed – if you lose money just print more and bend the rules to do what you like.
