Final park post of the day.

How is this legal? Smashing US quarter dollars with a Disney imprint and a big COPYRIGHT symbol on it. (it is on the flipside) My quarter still said "IN GOD WE TRUST" even after the attempt to remove the offending words.
Cats for sale.

Captn Victorville is either looking at the churro or... oh...
he's a tit man.

These two make a pretty picture. They were sitting in the picture spot tea cup as if it were a park bench. Not allowing little kids to have the photo memory of a lifetime. They were just sitting. Having a non-conversation. Fuckwads. Why dont you trade some pins while you waste space.

Penny Presses and the Law

In some countries such as the United States it is the official opinion of the department in authority that the pressing of pennies and other coinage is not prohibited unless there is fraudulent intention either in the pressing of the coinage or its use thereafter. And there are thousands of penny presses in the USA - many operating for decades. In other countries such as Canada and Australia the existing law does not address the pressing of coins into souvenirs. However, in those countries the law prohibits the destruction of the national currency and the legal opinion in those countries holds that the pressing of their national coins into souvenirs is therefore prohibited - but only the nation’s own coins. No country’s law presumes that it can regulate what you do with some other nation’s coinage or currency. In other words if a Swede wants to smash a centavo in Sweden it is perfectly permissible. No country has jurisdiction beyond its own borders over such matters. That is the reason that our international models come with a hopper. The hopper can be loaded with the coins of another country and the pressing of those coins is therefore perfectly legal. You could also put blank tokens in such a hopper but such tokens are quite expensive and less desirable.

From a page about railroad pennies:

U.S. Code Title 18, Chapter 17, Section 331 prohibits "the mutilation, diminution and falsification of United States coinage" for fraudulent uses. For example, you can't flatten a penny and then try to trim it into two pennies for use in a vending machine. But, as long as you don't attempt to use a flattened coin as U.S. currency your owning it (and our flattening of it) is legal. It is important to note that FLATTENED COINS ARE NO LONGER LEGAL CURRENCY.

FLATTENED COINS ARE NO LONGER LEGAL CURRENCY. thats like saying a crashed cop car is no longer police property.

Do you have connections to get into Disneyland or something? It's so expensive to go there nowadays, unless YOU work for the company.

The couple in the tea cup thought they were in a hot tub. They are bored waiting for the water to fill up the tea tub or the hot cup.
