Insane or Awesome?
The municipal court in Jersey Village (near Houston) accepts cash, money order, cashiers check and credit card for ticket payments. This week was likely the first time they've had a fine paid in origami pigs.
The man explained, "I got this ticket in a town where the cops (and absurd redlight[sic] cameras) are pretty much a money trap and that's it. I decided to pay in an appropriate manner."
Though the clerk seems annoyed (he requested that the man unfold each pig before handing over the bills), a police officer brought in to diffuse the situation laughed at the joke.
"That's pretty cool . . . That took a lot of time," the officer says.
The man spent more than four delirium-inducing hours folding the bills into paper piggies. It took him about three minutes to unfold.
