    Seems that Meisha Johnson stuffed a bunch of pennies in her bra. Whoa!

  3. Those were not pennies. They were blanks headed to the Philadelphia Mint to become pennies. Details count, people.

    It just makes no cents. Wasn’t there a copper nearby to direct traffic? Toll booths won’t even take pennies.

    Baltimore? Look out for a lot of black crack addicts buying ten bottles of Ripple at a time, paying for all of it in pennies.
