Take a penny leave a penny

Recommended Posts

I find it interesting that the homeless people are protesting the removal of the TV and not the removal of the house/foundation that was previously in the pile. Nevertheless, I throw a penny in the pile.

There is now a “damn you, autocorrect” meme, several protesting homeless people, and a penny in the pile.

A liberal empathizes with the plight of the homeless people and brings them a TV.  The protesting ends, and they all watch HGTV together.  Inspired a network commercial, they beg for a day and have enough pennies to make their HGTV dream a reality.  After stealing a can of epoxy resin from a hardware store, the homeless people bond thousands of pennies to the sidewalk and show off their new "copper floor" to passer-bys.

There is now a "damn you, autocorrect" meme, a liberal, a TV, several crafty homeless people, and a mostly empty can of epoxy resin in the pile.

The liberal posts a picture of the penny-covered sidewalk to Instagram and it goes viral. He takes credit for the work and he his made an internet star.

There is now a "damn you, autocorrect" meme, a liberal, a TV, several crafty homeless people, and a mostly empty can of epoxy resin in the pile (in other words, nothing changed).

After about a week, someone comes under cover of night and steals all of the pennies. The newly minted instagram star creates a GoFundMe page to replace it, which raises $130 over 2 weeks. People soon forget all about the episode.

There is now a "damn you, autocorrect" meme, a slightly wealthier liberal, a TV, several crafty homeless

I come by to drop off a sixer of PBR, but everyone left to chase after the next shiny object.

I combine all of the objects in the pile into a small pub called the Portland Jesus. The meme is framed and hung over the bar next to the TV and used the rest of the resin to finish the bartop.

This gets the attention of the local church.

The angry religious protestors rig the next mayoral election to get one of their own in office who has sworn to "strike down" the blasphemous Portland Jesus pub

Distracted by presidential live-tweets of the democratic debate, no-one notices the angry religious mayor passing a prohibition law. The pile is now in a dry county. 

There is now a hip dry street with the a "Dry-bar" called Portland Jesus, a lagging real estate market, and an angry but smug religious mayor in the pile.

For some reason the county becomes frequently visited by a 1969 orange Dodge Charger with a Confederate flag on the roof who leads the local police on wild car chases with each visit.

There is now a hip not-so-dry street with the a not-so-dry, anti-prohibition bar called the Portland Jesus, a stabilized real estate market, and an angry but smug religious mayor who now has to deal with an outrageous police budget in the pile.

It turns out that the Portland Jesus was built in a very narrow flood plain, and no-one did their due diligence. An abrupt flash flood washes the not-so-dry anti-prohibition bar out of the county (and off of the pile). The smug mayor and several of the most vocal "complainers" leave the county, to find more drama. 

There is now a damp empty lot on (in?) the pile.

A small pack of hipsters comes looking for the Portland Jesus bar, which was rated highly on "Yolop", the restaurant rating service. They see the muddy footprints and immediately recognize them as sasquatch tracks. They begin selling tickets to view them. 

There are now two pennies, and a revenue generating tourist attraction on the pile.

I come to visit the tourist attraction but am mistaken for Sasquatch. Must be my oversized feet. They take me prisoner (ugh, not again).

There are now two pennies, a revenue generating tourist attraction (which suddenly got a popularity boost) and a caged @ChebyshevII_PE in the pile.

I recognize @ChebyshevII_PE so I leave my project drawings with him for a peer review. It takes him 3 weeks to review and stamp the drawings.

There are now two pennies, a revenue generating tourist attraction, a stamped set of project drawings, and a caged @ChebyshevII_PE, and only 3 days of beef jerky left in the pile.

After eating only beef jerky for 3 weeks, @ChebyshevII_PE has started to exhibit symptoms of scurvy. I smuggle in bag of oranges and a kale and broccoli salad for him, and steal the pile's pennies as my payment.

I came to eat beef jerky and escape from my cage. And I'm all out of beef jerky.

I collect the stamped drawings and submit them to the city for approval. Their review finds that @ChebyshevII_PE's PE stamp does not cover the work shown on the drawings and launches an inquiry into his business practices.

There is now a revenue generating tourist attraction and a State Board investigator in the pile.

After rigorous and intense questioning the state board investigator realizes I never actually agreed to stamp the drawings, but it was forced upon me while I was in confinement. The investigator leaves to go look for @Dexman PE PMP for further questioning.

I rode the roller coaster but forgot how badly motion sickness affects me. I take the money to pay for my hospital bill; there was nothing left over.

The cleaning crew comes in to clean up the mess. They accidentally clean up the footprints too.
