But here's what I don't get--- THE PENNY.
Who the hell wants 'em? And come on- most of us understand that when a store sells something for $4.99, it's really five bucks, right? Riight?
So I had an idea- why doesn't some town declare itself the "Penny Capital of the World" and start buying-up pennies? They could display them, stack them, even hot glue them to things.
"Roll on into _____________, Arkansas, for a vacation you won't soon forget. Don't be pound foolish-to coin a phrase-plan your trip now." Maybe they could get CHIPS star Eric Estrada to star in the commercials? Or, better yet, George Bush. He's open, right?
You can't melt them. No sir- that would be against the law. If you have mineral rights to an ore mine, buy-off your Congressman and you're good to go, but remember to 'call before you dig,' you dig?
The town of Branson Missouri- a place I've come to love and respect for their love and respect of America-should seriously consider doing the penny thing. There are a few performers there not worth a cent, but things are changing. And some change is good.
