With taxes, that adds up to 22,000 pennies.

Hey, makes “cents” to me!

Via Yahoo News.

A Texas man who was found guilty of speeding after contesting a ticket has taken out his anger by paying the fine with about 22,000 pennies.

In a dramatic video he created to document his vengeful act with small change, Brett Sanders of Frisco is seen going to the extra effort of branding his buckets with the slogans “Policing for profit” and “Extortion money.”

….As the camera rolls, Sanders lifts up his buckets one after the other and dumps the hundreds of dollars in pennies on the desk….

“It felt great. It really felt great,” Sanders told NBC Chicago, who reported that the clerk’s employees used a local CoinStar machine to count the change.

It took them three hours. By the end of it, it apeared Sanders had overpaid by $7.81.

He said the clerk’s office could keep the extra.

    Congress, both parties, push elimination of the penny as a ‘cost savings’. I believe that these episodes are part of their reason.

    Sorry, but this guy is a complete jerk and I couldn’t make it through his whole self-indulgent video. I would have demanded he pick up those pennies off the floor and would have called security or the police if he didn’t. I find it hilarious if he overpaid though.

    Somehow I have a feeling he speeds a lot more than he got ticketed for too.
