Hasbro took a vote, and the internet has spoken. The ballots have been counted, and the people have said eff the iron — the new Monopoly token will be a cat.
In a poll on the classic game’s Facebook page, Hasbro asked fans which token should be retired forever. The race car, the Scottie dog, top hat, thimble and battleship will continue to pass go and collect $200, said voters. The boot, iron and wheelbarrow were in close competition to have their jerseys strung up on the rafters, but in the end, it was the iron that got canned. In favour of a cat.
This was left up to the internet. We should have seen that coming from a mile away.
