After cutting down some trees on his property to avoid them spilling onto his neighbor's lot, Jay Sperry received a $310.50 bill from the city. The bill was for sending city workers to mow the grass around his property's perimeter since Sperry had failed to do so himself after removing the trees, because somehow that equals hundreds of dollars (presumably the mower blades were etched from diamond and attached to a lawn tractor driven by the Last Son of Krypton).
The city refused to budge on the bill, so Sperry paid it -- in
pennies. He loaded 31,050 pennies (that's 170 pounds of currency) into
buckets and dropped them on a desk at City Hall. We assume the total
number of coins could be substituted on a 1-for-1 basis for the amount
of dicks Sperry respectfully instructed city officials to eat.
