Last Friday's Links Late

The McDonalds Monopoly Fraud. Get this, for years the McDonalds Monopoly contest was rigged. For roughly 6 years an employee at a company McDonalds subcontracted out to run promotions was straight up stealing the rarest pieces and selling them or giving them away. 6 years!

It funny because I eat at McDonalds way too much and for years have dreamed about winning the Monopoly contest. I'm even one of those sad saps that will supersize my order or get nuggets just to get extra pieces. It's the only time I play something close to the lottery. I feel like Mouth felt in the Goonies when he started taking back his wishes: "Yeah, but you know what? This one, this one right here. This was my dream, my wish. And it didn't come true. So I'm taking it back. I'm taking them all back."

Motoped Survival Bike. Last week I rode my bike for the first time in about 6 years. Maybe I would ride it more if it came with a motor and a mother chunkin crossbow. Tell me I wouldn't be the coolest dad on the block riding around on this thing towing one of those bright yellow baby carriers. You better say I'm the coolest, I have a crossbow.

11 Characters Marvel Studios should consider for a female led film. Like many marvel zombies I'm a big proponent of a Captain Marvel movie but she's not the only female comic character ready to make the leap to the big screen. She Hulk would be great and a Black Widow movie could be very cool. If Marvel really wanted to stay a step ahead of DC they should go all in and make a Ms Marvel movie with Kamala Khan. You could make it on 1/10th the budget of a Guardians or Avengers and just market the shit out of it to tweens and YA readers. They wouldn't just beat DC to the punch they would practically be inventing a whole new genre of superhero movie.

Zoe Saldana on Going Green and the Importance of Teenage Boys. Yeah this is a weird read. Either Zoe Saldana is super insecure and just NEEDS younger men to think she's attractive or she's bought into the worst hollywood sterotypes that comic book/action/adventure/science fiction movies are for pimply faced teenage boys and if you don't feed them a hot chick your movie will be unsuccessful. Either way this article is kinda depressing.
