See a penny, pick it up,
Then all day you'll have a penny!

Why is it a penny for your thoughts, but people always want our five cents' worth?

Just a penny doesn't account for inflation. My thoughts are easily worth a quarter these days. :P

Lol - you're right. I was thinking that it's "five cents" but it's only two. Whoops.

You can keep my three pennies.

So how is this game played?
Idioms?

Kort -
Just be sure not to be penny-wise and pound-foolish.

Or something like this:

I'll take one of IsabellaLinton's pennys and leave . . .

Penny Hofstadter

I just discovered there was a 1984 musical called "Pennies from Heaven" staring Steve Allen in (what was supposed to be) a non-comedic role. There were some very ambitious musical production numbers as the characters float in and out of fantasy and a very harsh 1930s reality. It was Allen's next film after "The Jerk" - and was supposed to be a departure from his usual kind of character.

It was apparently a box office flop but some critics loved it (others hated it). It has obtained some level of cult interest. Fred Astair, who is featured via clips from his old movies, was not a fan.

It was nominated for 3 Oscars (winning none) and Bernadette Peters won a Golden Globe for the film.

"Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times wrote that 'it is like no other period musical. It is so far out, so unexpected, that it might well be described as experimental...As such, it's likely to elicit deeply divided reactions: Audiences will either love it or hate it.' " - wikipedia

It was based on a BBC 1978 tv series of the same name.

Clips of both are on Youtube.

I am not sure if I am intrigued or horrified by this discovery.

I take a penny...
For me to keep and collect dusts around it. Cause I can't use it yet.

And leave a penny...
By throwing it on someone's back. Let's see if this person picks it up. :lol:


Sorry. I only have, instead, is a singkong duling (an imaginary 5 cent coin worth 0.0010 in USD if it was still valid and in circulation). :P
