A Weds Oct 29 time to go home from work question

Why do you have to 'put your two cents in'... but
it's only a 'penny for your thoughts'?
Where's that extra penny going to?

Which of us can stop at giving only ONE of our thoughts?? We always give more than asked for; hence the two cent charge.

I always thought that Penny was the Patron Saint of Whinging, always ready to soak up your miserable, self-indulgent thoughts. So, last time someone offered me "Penny for your thoughts", I punched them in the neck. Rude buggers, accusing me of whinging...[mumble grumble...].

Cheers,
Marc (A dollar for your pastry?)

People would much rather pay 2 cents to hear themselves talk than to pay a cent to hear someone else.

Marc (A dollar for your pastry?)[/QUOTE]

A dollar! Only a DOLLAR!, for finely crafted pastry. Consider the sensuous flour used, gently milled by willing llama grinders, the pure clear water filtered though finely matted squirrel fur, the gracious untainted lard provided by a newly slopped pig, freshly laid eggs from orgasmic chickens and the filling, oh so delicate masticated lovingly by transient lemurs. Then the indigent ingredients exactly portioned kneaded by little chipmunk feet into a delicate flakey dough with the filling generously dolloped into the center by swooping pelicans and singeingly baked in the hammers of heck ovens. AND you are only offering a DOLLAR! A cruet for your thoughts.

75 cents...or I tell the Pirate Ninja Squirrels what you did to their now-matted brethren. That's reasonable, yeah? 70 cents. And if I told the roosters what you did to their hens? The roosters are already angry...well, they're always angry, but now they're particularly so, and since they not long ago came to MontsnMags Cybernetic Surgeries and had those lasers implanted in their eyes, well...65 cents is a pretty good deal. So, how about it? 60 cents? For your pastry? Surely 55 cents is good, yeah?

Cheers,
Marc

A devaluation of my pastry, not happening! Please tell the Pirate Ninja squirrels, I bought them off with virgin walnuts and they agreed to lend me their slave squirrels for the process. And the roosters! Whom do you think laid the eggs so they would have that fine creamy texture and unbeknowst to MontsnMags Cybernetic Surgeries I paid for those laser implants. I bribed, cajoled or otherwise convinced all parties to the pastries to participate. Now Pastries are $2.00 instead of $1.25.

Cheers, (may your day be as gooey as mine)

I'll take one. Even at $2, it's still cheaper than Starbucks. With much higher quality ingredients, I might add.
