This just in! Monopoly is trying to get some publicity by holding a public poll to get rid of one of its eight game pieces.
Place your vote right here. I want to see that bloody iron eliminated.
Why don't they put an octagon in the mix as a replacement piece?
Monopoly is sending a game piece to jail, permanently
Monopoly is sending one of its tokens directly to jail forever — without passing go, without collecting $200.
The iconic board game is asking its Facebook fans to vote for their favorite game piece, including the car, thimble, boot, Scottie dog, battleship, hat, iron and wheelbarrow.
The one that receives the fewest votes will be voted off the board next month.
As of Jan. 9, the dog and the car have garnered the most support. Fans of the wheelbarrow and hat may need to select a new game piece.
But out with the old and in with the new: Monopoly will replace the shunned piece with a cat, diamond ring, guitar, helicopter or toy robot.
