Pic of the Day: Banksy Plays Monopoly at Occupy London


Rich Uncle Pennybags — yes, that is the Monopoly guy’s real name — doesn’t seem so happy in the photo above, perhaps because his bank is floundering and he needs some bailout money to fill his top hat. The sculpture, which has been attributed to Banksy (who apparently won’t even show his face to radicals), is a gift to Occupy London. While we love both the idea and the execution, we admit to wishing Banksy had included some cards, money, and supersize dice so occupier could actually play the game. [via World of Wonder]
