A Bunch Of People's Two Cents

(MUSICMAN PRESS) A study by Dr. Willis Wilbert Weevils, an economic professor at Princeton University, stated that the value of your two cents has increased. Your input was worth two cents for over a century. However, it has skyrocketed in the last decade.

The Professor's three-year-long study, found the price of an option now sits at a nickel. The study began in April 2004 when a student of Weevils asked how inflation effects commonsense. The pupil, I. B. Suck-Upp, researched along side Professor Weevils, for twenty-eight months, said The Professor.

"I'm just glad I could answer a pupil's question; even though it took three years! So, basically folks, your two cents is now worth five cents. It's still pretty worthless though!" Weevils said with a chuckle.
