So many pennies, so little money

This morning I paid for 4 cents in stamps with four pennies. I so enjoy using my mason jar full of coins at the post office. The added benefit is that it keeps me using snail mail. Nonetheless, this is pretty ridiculous but quite amusing:

Can’t wait to see the full 60 Minutes episode.

P.S. I’m frustrated that my keyboard no longer has a cents symbol on it (yes, I know I can insert the symbol, but come on, this is going to make me feel like a crotchety old man).
