Do you like Penny jokes? We have a number of jokes about pennies, with a penny being one of the lowest valued coins in some countries, but it’s also used in expressions like “A Penny For Your Thoughts”.
Using a public toilet is also often termed “Spending A Penny” because years ago (in the UK at least) you had to put a penny in the slot of the toilet door to get it to open.
Penny Pinching is also used to describe someone who is miserly and doesn’t like spending money.
So there you have it. This is our selection of penny jokes which we hope you enjoy.
