McDonald’s Monopoly Returns, May the Odds be Ever in Your Favor

mcdonalds-monopoly

McDonald’s Monopoly is back for another round and its prizes are as trifle and as grandiose as ever. Beginning July 16th, 2013, guests will be invited to compete for the coveted Park Place and Boardwalk combo, which will win you a cool $1 million dollars. Although, the odds of that happening, according to the official rules, is approximately 1 in 3,050,412,898.

That being said, there will be numerous “Instant Win” prizes that range from a Redbox rental to a trip to the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl in Honolulu, Hawaii. “Food Prizes” this year have remained mostly the same, and the odds of coming up on those are much higher — 1 in 9 for a Medium Fries and 1 in 44 for a McFlurry, for example.

The game ends August 12, 2013 and is available in all 50 states, including the District of Columbia, Guam, Saipan and Puerto Rico.

May the odds (and your appetite) be ever in your favor.

Holocaust Beer Pong Exists — Yes, Really

holocaustbeerpong

A picture showed up on reddit yesterday that looks awfully familiar, and not just because it’s a repost. Here’s a hint: it pits Nazis vs. Jews in a violent free for all in which Jews are at a clear disadvantage and even the winners end up losing in one way or another.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Holocaust-Themed Beer Pong is an actual thing, and not only that, it’s apparently pretty popular.

For anyone who doesn’t feel like squinting, here are the rules: 
 

Its called Jews vs the Nazis. Its 3-on-3, 30 cups per team. The Nazis shape their 30 cups into a swastika, and the Jews set up their 30 cups as the Star of David. The cups are re-racked to a smaller swastika and a smaller star when 18 cups remain on either team. The Nazis start the game off with ‘blitzkreig,’ and each player on the Nazis shoots until they miss, but this is only allowed for the first volley. The Jews have the ‘Anne Frank Cup,’ and this ability allows them to pick any one of their cups and hide it anywhere in the room, but it has to be shootable, obviously. The Jews can only do that once per game and can be used only during their turn. To equalize this slight advantage, the Nazis also have another ability called ‘Auschwitz’ (or ‘Concentration Camp’ if you don’t know what that means). With this ability the Nazis can pick any player on the Jews team and they have to sit out of the game until the other two players on the Jews team each make a cup. After that happens the 3rd person on the Jews team can play again. Also, throughout the game you are supposed to talk alot of shit and say as many racist things as possible to make it more enjoyable.

My Jewish friends actually love this game haha.

 
Comments on the reddit thread have been either brilliantly farcical or overwhelmingly positive, with some redditors even offering their own twists on the game, including something called “Vietnam War.” 
 

‘Anne frank cup’ yeah that’s when i started laughing”

Now do one for the pacific theater. I’m not sure how the basic rules would work, but it should be played in a pool, and at the end the American side gets to throw a bowling ball (or two) at the Japanese side.”

Did you just say ALCOHOLOCAUST!?”

High-larious genocide puns aside however, we wanted to ask what you guys thought of this whole thing. Harmlessly historical, or horribly inappropriate? Sound off in the comments!
