I'd "Park Place" her and then collect $200!

Her career peaked on celebrity jeopardy:
"Alex, I would like to say hello to my baby and wonderful husband. Michael, darling, if you're watching the diapers are in the bedroom closet and the baby's diapers are under the sink."

Catherine Zeta Jones ,or the Community Chest, as she's known in Swansea.
 
2005-11-13 10:54:30 AM
I would like to see her Community Chest.

i bet she's going to play strip monopoly.

What a bunch of slackers. The game is bilingual!

*I wonder if Michael is bilingual, if you know what I mean*

People from Wales have such a love for their homeland that they even have a word for "The special feeling you get when you're away from Wales" that's a lot stronger than homesickness.

It doesn't surpise me that ex-pats are buying this.

actually, not really.

I'd bet the fark out of my bank account that Michael Douglas isn't the least way interested in Wales, and the fact that his wife was born there.

It's girly-thinking like this that makes a woman marry a grandfather-aged man, with inclusive wrinkly dick.

*sigh*

Wow I can't believe that the Farkers in here don't understand what the filter did to Wanebo.

By the way, nicely played, Wanebo.

You know how you win at monopoly?

Buy up all the red spots for cheap, put houses on them and watch as everyone lands on them repeatadly. They are, statistically, the most landed on spots.

So the English chap goes to a bar in Wales for a drink.
The Welshmen inside the bar look at this new guy with scorn not liking outsiders.
The bartender approches him and says: "You're not from around here are ya?"
The Englishman replies that no, he's from Cornwall.
"And what exactly do you do in Cornwall"
The Englishman says: "I'm a taxidermist"
The bartender, being Welsh, doesn't know what that is asks him: "And what exactly does a taxidermist do?"
The Englishman explains: "Well, I mount animals"
The bartender relaxes and shouts to the others in the pub: "It's all right! He's one of us!"

Zeta-Jones is hot. Hot. Hot. I would wedge my tongue so far up her crack I would lick the back of her teeth. That is how hot she is.
 
2005-11-13 01:40:40 PM

The bad part about her playing Monopoly with her husband, Michael Douglas: whenever you land on his property, he starts to yell at you "Greed is good, biatch !"


 
2005-11-13 01:43:52 PM
What a stupid article, it didn't mention what CZJ had for breakfast or how many times she went to the bathroom. Sloppy reporting.
 
2005-11-13 01:47:27 PM
Godzilla: I'd "Park Place" her and then collect $200!

I'd stick my 'penis' up her 'asshole', then 'pound her silly' and make her some breakfast afterwards.

Oh wait, we were being subtle?

Farkbot action in your favor. Collect 'Free Timewarp'. Advance to end of thread. If unpwned, you may buy it from Fark. =)

Well done.
 
2005-11-13 02:19:27 PM
Wait, since when does normal-edition monopoly have a "Mayfair"? Is there a different version for the UK or something?
 
2005-11-13 02:25:43 PM
She probably smells nice and doesn't have any venereal diseases.
 
2005-11-13 02:28:07 PM
This is not Fark's fault, but I have to say this is just about the WORST news story I have EVER read in the history of asinine news stories!

A celebrity buys Monopoly?? Are you kidding me????

On the board, Morgans Hotel replaces Mayfair, and the homeless charity Shelter Cymru replaces Old Kent Road.

Huh?

Yes. British Monopoly boards have London locations and sterling instead of dollars. Otherwise the game is identical.

I seem to recall something about a Monopoly computer game that allows internet play, with the board translated into each player's local version. I suppose, armed with this and a settings menu, one could pretend to go on a very cheap and unsatisfying world tour.

From Hasbro's website:

"[Monopoly is] sold in 80 countries and produced in 26 languages including Croatian."

I'll bet some of those have interesting railroads and street names.

To my experience, the best way to win is not to play.

You know celebrity sucks when you can't buy a present for the holidays and have the media announce it over a month before the actual holidays. Don't bother wrappin' that sucker.
 
2005-11-13 04:43:22 PM
Um..."without having", not "and have". Curse these drugs.
 
2005-11-13 04:48:22 PM
