Rebus brain teasers use words or letters in interesting orientations to represent common phrases.
Can you decipher the following common phrase?
Penny for your thoughts!

|where does the penny come into it. |
.01 does not represent a penny, $0.01 or even £0.01 would, but not just .01 on its own.

|give it a break mad-ade... i've gone through a lot of these and haven't seen any thing good from you... you're just a whiner.|

|Gove it a break, mad-ade. Your just jealous. .01 can represent a penny!|

|I have to agree with mad on this one, .01 isnt a penny. (and no i am neither "jealous" nor a "whiner") When you see .01 you wouldnt automatically add £ or $ to make it a penny, because if you can do that you could just assume that its grams and have " a hundreth of a gram for your thoughts", or any other symbols/measurements you could add. Had there been a £ or $ then this teaser would have been good, but as it is it doesnt work.|

|Americans might call $.01 a penny, but that is not what it is called on the world market, so it would need to be denoted in one of the currencies that has pence as part of its currence, with .01 being a penny and recognised as such on the world market.|

|I agree with the representation of the currency (which has obviously been fixed since original posting). Funnily enough I was just mucking around myself in a message board and was asking for people's thoughts in response to something I wrote and just to have fun I wrote this exact teaser (and I have never seen it) however I wrote it as A US cent yourthoughtyourthoughtyourthoughtyourthought |
