    This is some funny stuff.

    Cheap Trick Avenue instead of Boardwalk? Hernando's Chop Shop instead of Reading Railroad?

    Black leaders are outraged over a new board game called "Ghettopoly" that has "playas" acting like pimps and game cards reading, "You got yo whole neighborhood addicted to crack. Collect $50."

    Black clergymen say the game, the brainchild of a Pennsylvania man, should be banned, and have called for a boycott of Urban Outfitters unless the company stops selling Ghettopoly in its chain of clothing stores.

    Shine displayed the game board, with properties including Westside Liquor, Harlem, The Bronx, and Long Beach City, and squares labeled Smitty's XXX Peep Show, Weinstein's Gold and Platinum, and Tyron's Gun Shop.

    Players draw "Hustle" and "Ghetto Stash" cards with directions like, "You're a little short on loot, so you decided to stick up a bank. Collect $75," and "Steal $$$ if you pass Let$ Roll."

    The creator of Ghettopoly, David Chang, did not immediately answer e-mails or phone calls seeking comment about the game.

    On his Web site, Chang is unapologetic, and promises that more games — Hoodopoly, Hiphopopoly, Thugopoly and Redneckopoly — are coming soon.

    I wonder how Mr Chang would like "Montereyparkopoly?"

    -"US Customs discovers that the container of merchandise you just imported was made by prison labor and is a copyright violation. Lose a turn."

    -"Your kid gets 1600 on the SAT and still can't get into UCLA. Go back three spaces."

    -"The Federal Election Commission never figures out that the campaign contributions you handed out were really from the People's Liberation Army. Go ahead 2 spaces."
