Penny For Your Thoughts

Although we will one day go to electronic money (paper bills and coins will become obsolete), I had this random thought tonight: We should do away with the penny. Let's round everything up or down to the nearest 5 cent - our lives would be better. And then let's melt every penny in existence and . . . I don't know. . . make some sculpture of Abraham Lincoln's head or something.

Yeah I hate pennies. They always wind up in my butt crack. Don't ask me how, I am not sure. Heck just yesterday I was sitting on the throne and I heard a plop. I was like what the heck. I looked down and there was this little penny floating in the toilet water. Luckily there was no fecal matter on it-just gross water. So, reached inside took it out and washed it off in the sink. I am thinking about selling it on ebay. Want to buy it Barry? I will start the bid off at a penny!

Their Cu content is not even enough to make it worth a penny anymore.

They're called asspennies. Upright Citizens Brigade beat you by a few years.

Yeah, I guess when you rake in all that cash like you do, Barry, you don't care about pennies. That's just crazy to suggest. I don't know where you come from, but pennies do add up to considerable income. I've seen children bring their pennies and loose change to raise more than $700 for needy families in summer Bible school. Most recently, a group of students brought their pennies and loose change to raise over that for hurricane relief. Don't underestimate the power of a penny in a child's hands.

Anon. 11:42- That is TMI and a definite overshare and . . . needless to say, GROSS!!

Actually, haven't they (the gov.) been saying this for years? That is was to be phased out?

The children can start learning how to collect nickels instead.

I know what you are saying-I have had the same thing happen to me one time. I was taking a shower and all of a sudden I heard a clank clank clank clink in the tub. I looked down and there was a little penny. I think my dog stuck it there when I was sleeping.
