EA and Hasbro declare April 7th Global MONOPOLY Day

You know, I used to think that you had to have some sort of position of authority in order to declare days to be special. Now I realize that you only need a social networking site and a product. What a fool I was!

Electronic Arts and Hasbro have proclaimed that April 7th is "Global MONOPOLY Day" on Facebook. And speaking of things that seemed to have meaning in my youth but are now revealed as the marketing tools that they are, they'll be going for a Guinness World Record attempt as they challenge themselves in the time-honored pursuit of "most people playing MONOPOLY Millionaires at the same time."

Gawrsh, I don't know if they can pull it off. I just wanted you to know that tomorrow, according to Electronic Arts, is "Global MONOPOLY Day." Mark your calendars, get your souvenirs and brace yourself for a day which will go down as the most significant in the history at least one or two people somewhere in the world, probably for reasons unrelated to "Global MONOPOLY Day."
