Monopoly Announced the Game Pieces It’s Kicking Out and Their Replacements

Monopoly Announced the Game Pieces It’s Kicking Out and Their Replacements

Back in January, Hasbro announced that there were going to be some big changes to Monopoly’s game pieces. Some of the classics were going to get kicked out and replaced by new ones. And they put the whole thing to a vote.

Well the results are in. Three of the classic tokens are out, and three new ones are in.

Monopoly is officially getting rid of the thimble . . . the wheelbarrow . . . and the boot. And the new tokens replacing them are a T-rex . . . a rubber ducky . . . and a penguin.

That means the old school pieces that managed to get enough votes to survive are the Scottie dog . . . top hat . . . car . . . cat . . . and battleship. I use the term “old school” loosely with the cat, since it’s only been around since 2013, when it replaced the iron.

There were dozens of options for new tokens, and the fact that people voted in three fairly basic animal options showed we’re not QUITE as ready for Monopoly to jump into modern times as Hasbro seemed to be.

Some of the possible tokens that didn’t get the votes included four different emoji faces . . . a hashtag sign . . . a thumbs-up . . . sunglasses . . . a Vespa scooter . . . a monster truck . . . a cell phone . . . a TV . . . and a NASCAR race car.

A Woman Sues KFC Because Their Buckets Aren’t Overflowing With Chicken Like in the Ads

A Woman Sues KFC Because Their Buckets Aren’t Overflowing With Chicken Like in the Ads

By the time you’re like six years old, you figure out that fast food in real life looks NOTHING like it does in the commercials.  In ads it looks beautiful and delicious . . . in real life it looks like glistening squashed roadkill.

A 64-year-old woman named Anna Wurtzburger from Hopewell Junction, New York has apparently managed to live for seven decades without figuring that out.

She recently got a $20 bucket of chicken from KFC, but when she got home, she found it wasn’t BURSTING with gorgeous pieces of fried chicken like in the photos.

Quote, “They say it feeds the whole family, they’re showing a bucket that’s overflowing with chicken.  You get half a bucket!  That’s false advertising, and it doesn’t feed the whole family.  They’re small pieces.”

She called KFC’s corporate offices to complain, but when they kind of blew her off, she decided to SUE.  She just filed a $20 million lawsuit against KFC for false advertising.

Something tells me this is NOT like the time Subway got in trouble for making footlongs that weren’t a foot long.  KFC called the lawsuit, quote, “meritless.”

Mark Cuban’s Six Pieces of Advice If You Win the Powerball

Mark Cuban’s Six Pieces of Advice If You Win the Powerball

Mark Cuban

The Powerball drawing is tonight at 10:59 P.M. Eastern. The prize is now up to $1.5 BILLION . . . and it’ll probably jump even higher over the course of the day. That means the LUMP sum should also cross the $1 billion mark, which is crazy.

So what do you do if you win? I mean . . . uh . . . WHEN you win. Here are six pieces of advice from MARK CUBAN. After all, he became a billionaire the old fashioned way. You know . . . by tricking the suckers at Yahoo into giving him a fortune.

  1.  Hire a tax attorney first.
  2.  Don’t take the lump sum, so you don’t blow it all.
  3.  If you weren’t happy yesterday, winning won’t make you happy tomorrow.
  4.  But if you WERE happy yesterday, winning will make you VERY happy tomorrow. You’ll enjoy a life where you don’t have to worry about bills.
  5.  Tell all of your friends and family NO when they ask for money. No exceptions. If you help someone, it should be someone you’re close enough to that you knew about their financial issues BEFORE you won. And no one needs $1 million for anything.
  6.  Winning the lottery doesn’t make you a smart investor, so don’t make investments. Just put the money in the bank and live comfortably forever.

Tomorrow is “Talk Like a Pirate Day”, Get free Food from…

Tomorrow is “Talk Like a Pirate Day”, Get free Food from…

Talk Like a Pirate Day

Talk Like a Pirate Day

Tomorrow, Saturday 19th, is officially “Talk Like a Pirate Day.” That’s the made-up holiday where . . . yeah. But made-up holidays are MUCH less annoying when they involve FREE FOOD.

In honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day, Long John Silver’s is giving away a free fish or chicken tender to anyone who talks like a pirate tomorrow. But you can’t just walk in and say “Arhhhh!” . . . they want a whole sentence.

They even gave a couple examples on their website: “ARR I’ve come to plunder me free fish!” And, “Ahoy, matey! I’ve come for me free fish or chicken tender!”

Krispy Kreme is getting in on the action too. Although we’re not sure what pirates have to do with donuts. Who cares . . . they’ll give you a free glazed doughnut if you talk like a pirate.

And if you DRESS like a pirate, you get even more free stuff. Long John Silver’s will give you a free two-piece fish or chicken tender basket, and Krispy Kreme will give you a dozen glazed donuts. But you have to wear at least three pieces of pirate attire.

It’s not at every location, so go to krispykreme.com/pirate to find one near you, or call your local Long John’s. And go to ljsilvers.com/tlap for their “Pirate Name Generator.”
