When we were forced to go to the "eur", nobody told us what to call the change, Being en France we can't use centemes anymore. Were they centavos, pfennings or what. Over a year went by without any official declaration on it, so I suggested that we come up with a name for our change & suggested urinates. I may have been out done by a girl who suggested "urinals". We still jokingly use this.
Still waiting to see if it is better than the last European union when it was Nazi script currency.
Any better names for what we call the coins (other than worthless)?
Well, better than the dollar!

    Bellin, thought we put you to bed earlier. Just joking. Trying to figure out the bazaar behavior of this latest girl. Won't try to explain because nobody would believe me!

    Don't get serious on us 50s. We have a following here now. It at least gets a smile if not a laugh from those new to the movement.

    How about "non-cents"?

    Even better there's the term may father used to use for it and more appropriate to a blunderbuss: "shrapnel".

    vetra, non-cents would more apply to U.S. change but I like it. Shrapnel might be a good name for mid-eastern change.
