Others have tried this gag, usually with no success, but Brett Sanders has taken it to the next level. After getting a ticket, the Texas man decided that wasn’t going down without a fight. So to make the city work for his $212 ticket, he paid with all pennies. That’s over 210,000 pennies! And he just dumped them on the counter and walked away!

That’s a lot of copper and zinc! Now, the Internet has split over whether this man is a hero or a jerk. What do you think?
