"After cleaning out my desk drawers, I found about 50 coins from countries that are now on the Euro. (France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands). These coins are worthless as currency, but perhaps they would be of use to a belly dancer making a coin bra."
Sure, he could have just posted free worthless coins. I probably wouldn't have commented on that. But he had to go on to suggest a use for those coins, and my mind was blown. Of all the things I might imagine doing with a collection of free coins, making a "coin bra" for a bellydancer is approximately 1,578,770 on the list, after the following:
45 - give to panhandlers who talk on cellphones,* in empty act of largesse
2,286 - sneak into funeral homes, place over the eyes of the dead
10,034 - teach neighborhood squirrels to juggle
196,006 - If there are multiples, play "Concentration" with the faces of deceased political figures in France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands
502, 599 - Create own nation, called Fritsperland; make these fifty coins the national currency; severely restrict immigration
1,578,768 - build five columns of 10 coins each, call it Coinhenge
1,578,771 - Spend 4 years walking through Europe, testing vending machines to see if they will still accept these coins.
*Is this a common phenomenon? There are two local panhandlers who are often on cellphones, which I find pretty brazen. Perhaps I'm just old fashioned, but I want my panhandler to at least give an impression that s/he needs money to survive, not to have the accoutrements of today's active lifestyles. I don't have a cellphone.
