-- Hallmark would make "Sorry, what was your name again?" cards.
-- When your girlfriend really needed to talk to you during the game, she'd appear in a little box in the corner of the screen during a time-out.

-- Every man would get four real Get Out of Jail Free cards per year.
-- When a cop gave you a ticket, every smart-aleck answer you responded with would actually reduce your fine. As in:
Cop: "Do you know how fast you were going?"
You: "All I know is, I was spilling my beer all over the place."
Cop: "Nice one. That's $10 off."
