The Feds have decided to get rid of the penny.
Included in yesterday’s federal budget: 67 instead of 65 for OAS. Deficit gone by 2015. 19,000 federal jobs and the penny – gone.
The feds say they can save a ton of money by not making the penny anymore (ironic?).
Top five ways to tell the penny is on the way out.
#5. Nickels are nervous now.
#4. All the 1.99 stuff being rounded up to six bucks!
#3. People start offering you a dime for your next ten thoughts.
#2. More accordion playing monkeys and mid-day radio DJ’s looking for second jobs.
#1. Saw a nickel, picked it up – nothing.
And now it looks like the Americans want to follow suit…
