The Utter Travesty! Monopoly Piece Traded for Cat
The country woke up on Wednesday to discover that the Postal Service will stop delivering letters on Saturday and that Monopoly had ditched its iron token for a cat — the iron and the mail both victims of that highly overrated phenomenon called the internet. The cat was chosen through an online poll, a medium so heavily tilted in the feline's favor that there was no doubt it would beat the other (admittedly uninspired) options of a diamond ring, a guitar, a helicopter, and a toy robot.


Come on, internet! A cat? As if we weren't inundated with enough cats already? What's next? Replacing the thimble with a tiny, alloyed Justin Bieber?

And while the iron has always been a tad inexplicable .... it was a member of the original six metal tokens introduced in 1937, surviving purges in later years that killed the cannon.

....the iron is actually a remnant of metal-working in Chicago.....

......A small, metallic bit of American history. Tossed out for a cat.

I like Kitties too, but I do wish they wouldnt have changed the original pieces.
