MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Does the guy in jail on the Monopoly board have a name?

When you commit to a game of Monopoly you’ve got at least 3-4 hours of starring at that board. You’ve probably noticed that on the jail space there is a guy in the jail behind the bars…. And yes he has a name! Jake the Jailbird. 

Also, the cop on the board who throws him in jail that you use on the Chance and Community Chest “Go Directly to Jail” cards has a name too… Officer Edgar Mallory.

So bust out that knowledge next time you’re in the middle of a 4 hour game with someone.
