A Penny Saved ...

Peter vs. Pops,
Verbal Sparring Match #412:

What if you could buy the most expensive thing with just a penny?
Well then it wouldn't be the most expensive thing any more.

Hmm...well what is the most expensive thing in this country? The White House?
Sure, and maybe a stealth bomber or a space shuttle.
Well, what if you could buy the White House with just a penny?

But let's imagine if you were the guy who paid for and built the White House and all you got for it was a penny. Does that sound very good to you?
I don't see why not ... I'd just take my penny and go buy a rocket.

Uh ... I think he got ya' there, Pops.
