Did we? When? Care to share?
He was talking about how McDonalds killed his childhood a few posts down.
I dunno, this seems like an almost great idea to me. Of course, considering Boardwalk is the rare one, anyone who has it probably doesn’t need to share. I think I get a Park Place with every meal.
That’s not scammy, this is just, you know, commodities trading, or something. Totally on the up and the up.
Tell you what, Cookie. I’ll take $5 from some investors, and agree to pay you five dollars if he gets a Boardwalk, and you’ll pay me the same if he doesn’t.
And then, because the real ratio is more like 25 cents to $5, I will sell my option to some guy for a quarter and I’ll….
Wait. Will I make money for my investors or not? I can’t figure that part out. I think I’ll just cash out and keep the quarter.
Maybe it’ll be an RCMP centennial quarter… Musical Ride….
Look, buddy, I just like the McDonald’s Monopoly for the little sticker pieces that are fun to play with, ok? Quit trying to invest in my stickers!
heh… I remember a couple of decades ago someone spammed all the Usenet groups with that very deal… Good times, good times. Now get off my lawn!
I clicked on this to read the comments and a couple of McDonald’s pop-up ads suddenly appeared, blocking everything. They don’t want me to know it’s a scam.
Yeah, but now they make you keep them in little slits on the side instead of letting you stick them on the board. Boo-urns!
@Lawnmower Boy: Is that how Madoff started?
Darned straight! And if the Feds had just left him alone until he finally got that rare, collectable quarter, he could have sold it and paid everyone off from the proceeds! Stupid regulators…..
