John Oliver, the world's foremost voice of reason, took on a topic that the people literally has in their back pocket: the penny. Apparently, it takes a whole penny and point seven of a penny to make one coin, and the majority of them just end up in the garbage. Pennies often just end up on the floor and subsequently may be swallowed by a dog, which as Oliver says, "means it has more Lincoln in it than Mary Todd." Boom!
