The Canadian Penny

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.

#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.
