Anton Purisima is a man who knows how to think big. The New Yorker has filed a 22-page handwritten suit in a Manhattan court for two undecillion dollars. The sum, written as two followed by thirty-six zeros, is likely a new record for a demand in a lawsuit, the New York Postsays. It's also more money than even exists in the world by a long shot, Gothamist notes, but at least there are more than a thousand defendants to bear the brunt. They include the New York City Transit Authority, the entire city of NYC, Au Bon Pain Store, LaGuardia Airport, a Kmart store, a dog owner, several health care providers, and 1,000 John Does.

Times that by ten. Knowing the Yanks, they'll give him something ridiculous like 200 years.

Not in New York. There, some liberal activist judge who doesn't believe in award caps will probably pin a medal on him and up the amount.

I don't think the court is going to be undecillion on this case. In fact, the will be unanimous. (To dismiss, obviously.)

See, you're flat out immune to a train of thought.

I didn't follow on the exact same concept as dilf's post, and then in my version ruined it.

Of course my puns are low humor. But they didn't wreck or virtually repeat dilf's joke.

Can you figger it out now? Maybe ur hom skool teechur is available for a phone consult.

Following is a brief chronology of the metal composition of the cent coin (penny):

The composition was pure copper from 1793 to 1837.
From 1837 to 1857, the cent was made of bronze (95 percent copper, and five percent tin and zinc).
From 1857, the cent was 88 percent copper and 12 percent nickel, giving the coin a whitish appearance.
The cent was again bronze (95 percent copper, and five percent tin and zinc) from 1864 to 1962.
(Note: In 1943, the coin's composition was changed to zinc-coated steel. This change was only for the year 1943 and was due to the critical use of copper for the war effort. However, a limited number of copper pennies were minted that year. You can read more about the rare, collectible 1943 copper penny in "What's So Special about the 1943 Copper Penny.")
In 1962, the cent's tin content, which was quite small, was removed. That made the metal composition of the cent 95 percent copper and 5 percent zinc.
The alloy remained 95 percent copper and 5 percent zinc until 1982, when the composition was changed to 97.5 percent zinc and 2.5 percent copper (copper-plated zinc). Cents of both compositions appeared in that year.

You are in desperate need of a mental health evaluation. You show multiple signs of Cluster B personality disorders.
