It's funny on several levels. 1. "Pigs in a donut box." Haha, good joke. 2. The clerk and the cop kept their cool, probably not the reaction he was looking for, making the entire exercise a total waste of his time. 3. He better keep his nose clean for quite some time, or he might get the roadside body cavity search next time he is pulled over.
At least he didn't run over 7 cop cars with a tractor...
Several years ago I was on my way to work and I saw some high school teenagers that were selling Krispy Kreme donuts out of the back of a box van. (They do that as a fund raiser around here) They had the back door up and you could see donuts from the floor of the van all the way to the roof. There were two cop cars parked behind the box van and two cops were standing there buying donuts. IF ONLY I HAD BROUGHT ALONG MY CAMERA! It was definitely a Kodak moment, but I had no camera with me to take the picture.
Getting back to the video of the guy paying for his fine with paper pigs, I'm pretty sure that in some municipalities, it is illegal to record or film the actions of police officers in any capacity. These cops were pretty cool about it, but who knows when you will be filming a "Barney Fife" cop. I'm also pretty sure that in some government agencies, they can stop you from paying your bill with small denominations, such as bringing in a wheelbarrow full of pennies into the IRS department, even though it is legal tender.
