Rejected Monopoly Tokens

The boot has been booted, the wheelbarrow has been wheeled out, and the thimble got the thumbs down in the latest version of the board game Monopoly. In their place will be a Tyrannosaurus rex, a penguin, and a rubber ducky. More than 4.3 million voters from 146 countries weighed in on which tokens they wanted to see in future versions of the property-acquisition game, which is based on the real-life streets of Atlantic City. Hasbro announced the winners Friday morning. Here are a few that didn’t make the cut:

  • Shoe that smells like real foot
  • Gnawed-on pen cap
  • Kristen Stewart looking glumly into the middle distance
  • Random choking hazard
  • Neolithic arrowhead
  • Vincent van Gogh’s severed ear
  • Travel size shampoo bottle
  • Tweezers, penknife, or anything the TSA will confiscate
  • A baby’s arm holding an apple
  • Travelocity Gnome (trademark infringement)
