Yes, Monopoly will be replacing the iron with…a cat! I know that you probably don’t believe much of what I post here, so here’s a link to CNN:
Of course, this makes part of my short story “The Car” (upcoming in the anthology High Stakes) outdated. But that’s okay, because the story is still a cutting-edge, ripped-from-the-headlines glimpse into the world of fighting over which Monopoly piece you get to be.
In fact, I may be psychic. Check out this excerpt:
“What about the iron?”
“Do you know anybody who has ever wanted to play as the iron?”
“Certainly somebody wants to be the iron, or they would have discontinued it.”
Suck it, George Orwell!!!
