i've been all around the world and i've been wondering why every country has such interesting looking money and ours is sort of bland and normal. but the more time i spend away the more i think our money looks quite nice and very classic. this is the new penny, i was surprised to see how classic it looks. it's like captain america's shield. this post is going to seem dumb and pointless pretty soon... when everyone has this penny. actually maybe it already is, maybe this penny has been in circulation for months and i'm just so out of touch that i didn't know. this may very well be the case. anyway, i like it. america!
