I read in the paper that there is SIXTY-FIVE MILLION POUNDS in lost PENNY COINS out there!
I do not think that these pennies can be THAT lucky – after all they were not lucky for the person that LOST THEM!
According to the latest BARMY survey, the top places to look for free dosh include #1 £26 million on the streets, #2 £11 million in handbags and suitcases, #3 £8 million in the car and #4 £6 million down the back of the sofa.
Maybe I should have a look down the back of MY sofa!
Humph, I think Cuddly Cthulhu must have gotten there first!
IC Wales sent out their own INTREPID REPORTER to see how many pennies were to be found!
He came back with 44p and – thanks to all those coppers in his pockets – a funny walk.
But the Metro's footnote (print edition only, I'm afraid) says that £65m in penny coins would weigh twenty-three thousand TONNES – or the same as 4,637 African ELEPHANTS.
They do not say what that would be in FLUFFY ELEPHANTS, but I bet it's a LOT! Maybe 4,638!
