  1. A penny for your thoughs,
    they say,
    a penny for your thoughts.
    My thoughts are worth more than a
    a lucky penny?
    But not a regular penny.

  2. a penny is a great thing because it is made of copper, not gold. you see, a penny was made in the past when people needed currencies, and to this day they still use them. yes, pennies are a wonderful thing. i wish pennies could be used for more things. i don’t know what things they could be used for, but at the same time i’m sure you’re very imaginative.

  5. If I had a penny for every time I heard someone tell me how much I look just like my mother. “Your smile!” “Your eyes!”

    I get it. I look just like her. But, trust me, we are completely different people with unique personalities.

    For example, she loves cheese pizza. I love pepperoni.

  6. A penny for your thoughts
    will compensate you for your time
    A dollar for you hour will pay in kind
    but when common sense isn’t so common,
    a penny might be what you seek,
    even if you can’t get much

  7. i like pennies. abe is on it, which is pretty cool. I don’t know much about the penny, but the colour of it is copper. is it copper? I don’t know.

    Penny is also the subject of a Hanson song, and I really like it because Taylor Hanson is one hot man. He has lots of kids. there’s so much more time left, my stream of conscious

  8. At the restaurant last night, someone left a penny on the table.

    It’s happened before.

    Why do people leave pennies? Perhaps they think it’s a form of good luck.

  9. I once found a penny and it was worth a dime. I picked it up and looked at it. Later, I found that if I hadn’t picked it up and stopped to do so, a car would have hit and consequently hurt me. You know, it was even more worth than a dime, I reckon. =)

  10. Pennies are good for one thing. I throw them out of my penthouse window. I’m on floor 20. So far I haven’t hit anybody. To be perfectly honest I would prefer not to, but its nice to put the option out there.

  11. pennyless. a penny isnt worth much today. ive got nothing. the end.

  12. oh just a penny, wish it was more. What can I do with a penny? could possibly jam the vending machine and try and get something for nothing.or is it a name of a girl? penny, Penny that’s what it’s all about isn’t it? as long as I have pennies I could possibly run the world. And also life. The first penny is the most crucial and then everthing else flows from it. The invention of the penny or basic unit of money to be represented by a piece of metal is mind boggling.

  13. The penny is becoming essentially worthless in today’s society. Think about it. How many times have you been cleaning and found a penny and, instead of setting it aside, threw it into the garbage along with your other trash? Read more at

  14. i dropped a penny on the ground and it fell through a grid onto a tube line where an old tramp was sitting. he picked up the old penny and rubbed it clean and took it away for luck but a strong wind blew it out of his hand as he was leaving the station.

  16. I have a little penny made out of copper. On it it says “In God we Trust”. I pick up every penny I see. It reminds me of God and also I think I get good luck.Sometimes I give them to my daugher. Sometimes I leave them on the ground but always “In God We Trust”.

  17. Give me a penny, and I will tell you a story worth gold; or rather, you shall hear two or three; for one brings to mind another. I hae a penny to spend, there, thanks to naebody; I hae naething to lend, I’ll borrow frae naebody. Ah, you are a piece of work, Septitius; you shall reimburse me to the very last penny. My own exclusive breakfast of a penny loaf and a pennyworth of milk, I shall provide myself.

  18. “Zack, if I had a penny for every single time someone told me that, you know how rich I’d be?” She asked. Without hesitation, I answer.

    “Richer than London?”


    “Than her dad?”

    She shakes her head and I stare at her like she’s absolutely crazy, which part of me believes to be true by the way. “The truth is, if you weren’t counting the many times it’s happened on stage and just counted the times when a guy’s really meant it” She explains “I’d be broke as smoke”

    OK, she really is crazy. “You’re joking”

    “Nope” She replies, I can see the honesty in her eyes. “I’m not exactly the catch of the day to most guys back in the U.S”


    “Swear on Isabelle Junior” She chuckles, pressing her precious iPod Touch to her chest.

  19. So insignificant and worthless. But everyone still likes you, and when the big bad White House was threatening to end you, the people stood up against oppression and spoke out for the poor brown coin that looked the other way.

  20. l like the song penny lane by the beatles. it’s a very nice sounding song, and it makes me think of a girl more than a road, but l guess that was the original point of the song. i mean, who would write a song about a road without some kind of imagery going on there?

  22. Pennies for thoughts. The idle shrinkage of original ideas, and we think creative plans can be stolen for pennies. It’s true. Poe sold his Raven for fourteen dollars. Pennies. Pure originality pawned off for a couple days of full bellies.

  23. It was a penny that was all it had been a penny. I hated that man with his ridiculous antics. I had just spent a week trying to track down a priceless antique but all it was was a penny.

  25. red penny copper was a hair color that served me well for half my life. Now it is Raven Black, a reflection of my heart

  26. a small coin. bronze. sometimes clean, sometimes covered in grime. considered lucky, which doesnt make sense to me. how can the lowest form of currency be considered lucky?

  27. Suddenly a littel penny rolled inbetween my legs. Wondering where it could have come from i picked it mup. To my demise i knew my cat was chasing after it. As kittens was in the air with his claws unleashed haeding twords my face a laughed. This what what i got for finding a lucky penny.

  28. I picked it up from the gutter carefully, so that it didn’t touch too much of my hand. I didn’t want to be responsible for the spread of a terrible disease. I put the penny in the small outside pocket of my school bag and promptly forgot about it, continuing on my walk home.

  29. Penny Lane was a good song by the Beatles. Probably one of their best. Penny Marshall comes to mind, Laverne and Shirley was a pretty good show. I am pretty cultured to be only 19. At least I think so. I look a good bit like Marcia Brady too, so that’s cool. Flipped out when m

  30. In a matter of speaking i have picked up and put down lots of pennies over time. I wish i could meet a girl named Penny who had the similar qualities of a copper penny. Put her down pick her up, lucky, unlucky, shinny or possible ugly. Spends time in my pockets.

  32. i have a penny in my pcket…pennies are good luck, but worth nothing….seems silly to me. Maybe thats why, its worth nothing but luck!

  33. I hate pennies that build up in coffee holders. Often, coffee spills all over them. They become filthy, they stink, not to mention they stain your hands when handling them. Tim Horton’s practically gains all profits through charging 1.99 for a coffee and no body EVER wants that damn penny back!

  34. if i was a penny i’d undoubtedly be face down in a muddy puddle made of fecal matter and random rubbish. the only person who’d pick me up would probably be a kid or a homeless man, which share an amazingly large amount of traits. homeless people don’t have jobs, neither do kids, they also share a common love of dirt and pocket change.

  35. penny from heaven, penny lancaster. I wish I had a penny for every time I had to write about a penny. How many pennies are there in Leeds? Is that time up yet, nope one more penny. must be a farthing

  36. A penny for your thoughts, dear. A careful gesture of humility and grace. Special, yet not quite special in the action. A saying to show concern, to ignore triviality, and to convey heartfulness.
