Monopoly encourages capitalism? I always thought that Monopoly satirized real estate moguls, railroad barons and other monopolists. After all it did take off in the Great Depression, and then there's the caricature of Rich Uncle Pennybags, and of course the title, "Monopoly." It's not like they named it Captains of Industry. it is cool. NTK 19:39, 7 Apr 2005 (UTC)
There is "Some thought", "Some have said"
Although there are many references in the external links section, I think each statement of the article should cite sources 18.104.22.168 04:33, 30 June 2007 (UTC)
Modified celebrity names
On the ghetto and redneckopoly websites, they use celebrity names for false endorsements that are modified so that the real-life celebs can't sue, but the difference is only within a letter or two. Sometimes they use entirely different names that rhyme exactly with the real names, such as:
- Hustle Simmons = Russell Simmons (Ghettopoly)
- B. Diddy = P. Diddy (Ghettopoly)
- Master B. = Master P.
- Rusta Rhyme = Busta Rhymes (Ghettopoly)
- Willie Nelsun = Willie Nelson (Redneckopoly)
- Barth Brooks = Garth Brooks (Redneckopoly)
- Dolly Pardon = Dolly Parton (Redneckopoly)
- Jeff Foxworthless = Jeff Foxworthy (Redneckopoly)
