That headline isn't one-hundred percent fair, the Internet did rid the world of the Iron, the Monopoly token that was always handed to your mother after everyone else took all the desirable shit. Good old mom, taking it on the chin so Dad and the kids can enjoy their game night while she sits with the constant reminder that there's a pile of clothes that needs to be ironed.
The iron is gonzo, solid work, you guys. So how did the Internet sodomize Monopoly? What did the collective masses choose for Monopoly's new game token?
A Cat. A goddamn fucking cat. You truly don't know what you've got till it's gone, do you? Thankfully, I already own a board, one that has an AWESOME IRON.
What it comes down to is Hasbro, the makers of Monopoly, have no one to blame for this but themselves. Giving the general public a voice never leads to anything good, just ask Pit Bull.
