"Go Directly To Jail..."

...Do not pass "Go"...Do not collect $200.00."
or
$700,000,000,000
for that matter either!
Where have the "good ol' days" gone...
when Monopoly was just a innocent and fun-filled family game...
and I could be the "banker"???

EDM# 191

LOL, I want money like that!!!

Zee has always beat me at Monopoly, even before he turned a wise old 12. And I only win when I don't care that I lose. Go figure! I think there's a life lesson in there somewhere... =)

Brilliant composition!

Brenda Y said...

This IS brilliant in both design and execution and should be submitted to be a USPS postage stamp design--I bet it would be a best seller!

I love the drawing! Good ol' days indeed - where did they go?

Great sketch, and I love the $700B reference to today's bailout controversy. It's not a blaring verbal and in-your-face political attack yet the inquiry is there.

J and Z said...

Wonderful art and sentiment and I whole heartedly agree!! Shame on them....

What a fun sketch. I always wanted to be the banker also.

The way the Fed is printing money, you can probably burn the stuff just like monopoly money! Er... maybe not just yet, but soon!!
