a penny for your thoughts

Alexander and Peter inherited their parents’ fortune, and spent their time bickering.

Alexander enjoyed picking up pennies from the street and adding them to his bank account; while Peter was so wasteful, he threw money out the window of his plane.

On this occasion, Alexander was driving to town to buy groceries. He drove the rusted Mercedes convertible his dad left him. Suddenly, he lost control of the car as it left the road.

Search crews located Alexander’s car in a deep ravine. He was DOA. The autopsy revealed he died from a massive brain injury. A penny was found inside his skull.

  1. You can now clean out the Tim Hortons cups from your truck (you do drink Timmies, don’t you? not that pretentious Starbucks, do they even have them on The Rock?) when you go through Corner Brook. The City Council has issued a 5 cents/cup bounty on them, to help keep the town clean. 🙂
