If pennies are gone, then what about EXACT change. They should replace the stuff in pennies with cheaper materials.

Ok, its really quite simple. If they get rid of those useless pennies, then people will simply start charging in increments of 5 instead of 1. A gallon of milk will be $2.oo a gallon instead of $1.99 and so on.

Never.

How will we get change? Besides, is it fair for Lincoln?

Also, what about all the pennies that already exist under sofas, in car seats, etc?

How will we get change? Really? Think that one through. Actually, you already asked the stupid question, so I'll help you think it through.

Step 1: Analyze the entire situation.
We're getting rid of pennies, NOT nickels, quarters, or dimes.

Step 2: Pick your favorite answer
"I'll take a nickel rather than 5 pennies."

Step 3: Realize how stupid of a question that was and never ask another question in fear that it just might be as stupid.
"Hmm? I have a question. Oh, wait. It's a stupid one. I'll just keep it to myself."

I assumed he was joking, but...
