Paying with Pennies; MTV Movie Awards

I saw this story and had to laugh! A man named Jason West in Salt Lake City, Utah was in a dispute with a Medical Clinic about a $25 charge he didn't think he owed. So his way of handling it was by going to the clinic to pay-with 2,500 pennies that he dumped on the counter! Definitely badass! Sadly they called the cops and he was arrested for "a protest that served no legitimate purpose." I have no idea how someone can be arrested for trying to pay with legal money.

I say paying with pennies is badass. I have no idea how someone can get 2,500 pennies, but the next time you go buy something cheap for like a dollar, try and gather up 100 pennies to pay for it! I'm sure the look on the person's face would be priceless. That would make a good Senior Prank for you teenagers, have everyone pay for lunch with small change. It's been done before probably, but it's funny every time.

Oh, and in other news Robert Pattinson dropped the F-Bomb live on the Mtv Movie Awards and it didn't get censored. This is the second time this year at a live awards show, the first was when Melissa Leo did it at the more prestigious Oscars. I love it both times! Live TV F-bombs are the best. In the trailer for Super 8, it sounded like a dinosaur! Jurassic Park prequel? No, but whatever the monster/alien is in the movie will be cool. And of course the clip for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 presented by the always great Emma Watson gave fans just a taste of the action packed finale for the epic franchise. Oh, and those monkeys in the James Franco starring Rise of the Planet of the Apes are creepy. I prefer the cheesy 60s costumes/makeup from the first one.
