Coins


I hate coins. They smell funny, especially pennies. I want them to go away. I wrote this song about how I feel:

Coins in my Pocket
Pennies and Nickels and Dimes and stuff,
Why won't you die already?
I hate you so much for making my hands smell funny
Die, Die, Die

  3. You inspired me to write a poem:

    Roses are pink
    Violets are blue
    Coins really do stink
    Just like you!

  4. If you don't like coins than you don't own the 5th anniversary world trade center commemorative coin. If you are smart like me you will consider investing...check it out:

    They should make another coin commemorating the raw awesomeness of this coin. The base of the towers is hinged on to the coin itself so they pop out like a sweet switch blade. Or maybe the coin is supposed to start with the towers in the "up" position, then, well...

  6. I personally like the commercial that says if you buy so many coins they will send you a safe. You have to buy like 5000 coins....its all very funny.

  7. why, are they out? It was a limited edition...I don't blame you for trying get mine but I'd be a fool to sell them. They are just going to go up and up in value. That said, there still may be some Elvis commemorative coins left.

    These aren't quite as cool though because the Elvis coins don't have any moving parts.

  8. Is there a tune you are singing that song to? It doesn't even rhyme...

  9. Yes I made up the tune with the song. It sounds wonderful. Architects Plus called me on speakerphone so I could sing it for them.

  10. And Vanessa, please verify with Keith, but the way I sing my coin song makes it sound like 'already' and 'funny' rhyme.

  11. Then: I want to kill the inventor of the Sacajawea Dollar, THEN I want to pee on their grave! Those things are so annoying.

    Than: I'd rather have no dollars THAN a Sacajawea Dollar.

  12. I do have to admit that it was a great song. You should hear it.

  13. This is a pretty interesting perspective on the AIG situation. Not that I totally agree with everything he says, but it's nice to hear from their side of it. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/25/opinion/25desantis.html?pagewanted=1&_r=3
