If I said I would give you a penny for your thoughts, what type of thoughts would I get?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26834points) August 3rd, 2011

They have that saying ”penny for your thoughts”, if I gave you one US penny for your thoughts, what kind of thoughts would they be? Would I get a thought worth just a penny, would I get one worth $30 to $75 dollars? Would I get a priceless thought? Would the thought be of a person, place or thing?

If you gave me a penny for my thoughts, then my thoughts will all just be the same and that is Sexual Thoughts. :)

It made me think of the beach shelter in the town where I grew up where you had a to put one old style penny in the slot to use the toilets. Not that we ever did. We made our own arrangements.

My two cents (is that a two-fer?): There are leavers and there are stayers. I’m a stayer, goddamit!

Disturbing, chaotic thoughts that leave you chilled and clammy.

Go ahead.

Make my day!

For a damn penny, you’ll hear shit. For maybe $50, maybe I’ll talk, and we’ll end up on the floor, passed out from laughing.

Thoughts? What thoughts? It’s an abyss in there….a bottomless pit!

This one comes cheap and was voiced recently by @tranquilsea.

This is all you get for a penny. If you want more with included insight, you’re going to have to pay more.

I doubt I could sort out just one, it would be tangled like a ball of yarn after a cat got it.

You’d get the weird thoughts of my strange observations of the day. Things like “That guy would look way different if he had more hair.”

AmWiser's avatar

You would probably get one of the negative thoughts running through my head, like…..“wtf was he/she thinking when they dressed today!” :\

A penny’s worth of thoughts is,” Last week I…”
