Monopoly has been around for nearly one hundred years, and in the past 20 or so, a number of spoof versions have cropped up, with Memeopoly by Chris Olivieri being one of the most entertaining I've encountered.

Trading New York or London properties for internet content controversy, this information-age edition of the capitalist board game captures the essence of many peoples' contemporary priorities.

The pastime places the faces of online personalities, from Antoine Dodson and Rickrolling Rick Astley to the Pedobear and that cat that's really good on the keyboard. Milhouse from The Simpsons guards the Community Chest, and altogether, Urlesque.com's Memeopoly prices each persona, because viral material on the Internet is where big bucks can be made these days.
