MEGAPOST: The Game of Life and a parody/critique of socialism

Fun With Politics – Social Life Board Game Commercial
Get lazy in the Game of Social Life.
You can spend more time with your kids and your wife.

Don’t be a doctor, they work too hard.
CEO? No! Mall security guard.

“Your successful business triples your tax rate.”

Get lazy, taxes take you money away.
So why go through the trouble? Mediocraty pays.

“Wait 2 years for cancer treatment. Lose 24 turns.”
“Oh, man! Inflation card. Everyone lose half your money.”

Get lazy, you don’t have to go to school.
Get free money, spend more time by your pool.

If you go to college, man those school loans are lame.
Why go through the trouble when we all make the same.

“You fall behind on your mortgage. Yes! Collect $1000 every turn.”
“You’re current on your mortgage. Pay an extra $1000 every turn.”
“The key is to not have any ambition.”

Get lazy, there are no rich people to hate.
Bring rich people down! Hey, aint life great?

“The spinner only has the number one, so nobody gets an unfair advantage. We wouldn’t want anybody to win now! Every other space is tax day! Well, for the dummies who make enough to pay taxes.”

Get lazy.

“Buy it while it’s still available.”

“Available only until there are no more rich people to leach off of, and the middle class goes completely extinct leaving only extremely poor, and not the kind of poor where you can still afford an iPod.”

“By Death of the Constitution Games.”

The game of life 1960 commerical- in color!

I remember when they ran this commercial a lot during the Beverly Hillbillies and Petticoat Junction, so I’m gonna guess it’s from somewhere around 1967-68


“Be a winner at the Game of Life!”

*Bargain Hunter* by Milton Bradley. A poor-man’s *Game Of Life* that let kids experience all the headaches of adulthood..
“Hunt bargains to be the first to furnish your apartment and get out of debt.”
