R.I.P. The Iron (No, not Thatcher)

#1 Post by MarkBarrett » Thu Feb 07, 2013 9:54 am

The Monopoly token of the iron has been voted out. The new token replacing it will be a cat.

I voted to save the hat and to vote in the robot.

Seems only fair that a cat got chosen. There has been a dog for a very long time

Why not a cell phone, ipod, tv, ipad, plane, skate board, snow board?

I don't get why a cat was in the finals.

It does take a lot of talent to brush 26 kitties off of the keyboard so one can vote....

The media are such sheep. Hasbro marketing created a pointless non-event and every major national news outlet couldn't get enough of it, breathlessly parroting every press release with countless millions of dollars of free publicity. I wonder what real news didn't get reported in order to make room for stories about the new cat token.

Like what Lindsay Lohan's doing, or who Taylor Swift broke up with this week?
