Brit(ney) Blogging

tee bee

Following in the footsteps of many a celebrity spouse, KFed / alias Fed-ex, is trumpeting a cause he has a passion - and time, money and the public eye - for:
"We’re bringing power back to the penny. Man, I feel good about the penny!”
Britney's future former husband is tossing his stove-pipe hat into the political ring for the noble penny. No kidding. Seems the dearth of real work available to Congress has some Yahoo Rep trying to oust the little copper rabbit's foot.

Am I the only one feeling nostalgic for that grand scheme from Office Space where the guys are going to get rich by diverting all those fractional cents into a separate bank account?

For once, I'm down with homey. Especially since someone had the presence of mind to make sure Mr. Spears didn't use the microphone to belt anything beyond pro-penny slogans backed by Virgin Group's Virgin Mobile and Americans for Common Sense.

Last I read (yesterday) it costs $.0123 to mint one penny...FWIW.
(Get it?)

Funny. How does the Mint pay itself? I'm pretty sure they round up a bit.

Cold, hard cash...pun intended.
