Ok, ok so it’s not real, but the mere idea of a Monopoly version of The Wire is fantastic. I have a few television shows I follow closely these days, but I doubt I’ll ever reach the level of addiction I had with The Wire. Just how good was this show? They gave creator David Simon a freaking MacArthur Genius grant!
But say for a moment this game was real. What character would you choose and what corner would you run? I’d take Snoop, set up at The Pit, get me a nail gun (with straight cash) from Home Depot, and wait for Omar to come by in a trench coat, whistling.
A little Omar highlight reel, subtitled in Spanish of course, for your viewing pleasure.
