The Monopoly Guy: Why He’s The Man

27May10

So, in my head, The Man is an entity that can only be captured by the one thing from childhood    that taught me  how much it sucked to be in debt or go straight to jail and sit patiently for that luxury tax. That cartoon was Mr. Money Bags. Today he still threatens the corners of my mind whenever I see another headline, how companies are getting bail outs, and how much capitalistic cock our country is sucking. Look at him: he’s white, older, rich and owns pretty much everything in the board game and reality. He’s even on the fucking money! It’s rather sadistic that America puts out a game that reflects so much of the unjust reality for people below this standard (white, male, rich). So thank you, social injustice, for ruining my childhood. Can we please get rid of the monocle now?
