Getting a ticket from the police is never fun, but some people like to get a little creative when paying their fine. One YouTube user, appropriately named "Bacon Moose," decided to pay a $137 ticket he received in Jersey Village, Texas (near Houston) by creating an army of origami pigs made out of dollar bills.

In an attempt to hammer home his point, he brings his little piggies to the municipal court in a pair of Dunkin Donut boxes. Not surprisingly, the court clerk, none too amused with the situation, refuses to take the folded up dollar bills, and asks for a police officer to come over and explain to "Mr. Moose" why they can't accept the money in its current state. The man eventually gives in, and after spending more than four hours folding all of the bills, it takes him just "three to four minutes" to unfold them all to successfully pay his ticket. In the video, the man insists his ticket was not for any moving violation, but he does not say what he was ticketed for.

Kudos to the court clerk and the court clerk who both seem to be amused with the situation (in the end) and handle the situation cooly. After seeing antics like those in the video posted below, we now know why the lady behind the payment counter always seems to be so cranky.

      That was pretty funny. Even the cop got a little chuckle out of it. It's a rather creative way to get the point across. I'll give him that.

      Maybe the "lady" behing the counter is cranky because HE is tired of being referred to as "lady"

      kudos to the court clerk and the court clerk? Maybe she had a split personality. ;) Sometimes origami works, but I don't recommend using it on officers or court workers. But hey, at least it was more high brow than hurling insults and creative (albeit maybe a little misguided).

      "Boo hoo hoo. I got busted for doing something I shouldn't have, so I'm going to act like a child and make pigs out of money. Boo hoo hoo" They should flag his phone/address and if he ever calls 911 with an emergency, wait until a famer's stake bed truck can be found and have the cops show-up in it. See what he thinks about his pig humor then.

        So, in other words, you want to live in a fascist police state. I swear, if everyone were as much of a blind follower as you are, that's exactly what we would be living in.

        Right, because it's the public employees' right to decide which members of the public they serve and if anyone dares to mock or criticize them, well they can just wait for police and fire services. Sorry, but they work for us and owe us the respect due to one's employer.

          Yeah, but the Guy in the video is a criminal. Criminals don't deserve any respect.

      " we now know why the lady behind the payment counter always seems to be so cranky" We already know why she's cranky. She's just another spoiled, entitled public employee who wouldn't last 5 minutes on a real job with real accountability. A man tries to pay his bill and a uniformed police officer is called. They never explain why you can't pay your bills with folded up currency, they just refuse to take the money. Of course that hard working public employee then wastes the taxpayers' time by getting his phone out to take a photo. They can't be bothered to unfold the money but they can take the time to take photos of something so they can show their fellow parasites how stupid and silly they think the taxpayers are. The clerk can take the time to call the cop, the cop can take the time to take a photo, but none of those hard working and selfless public employees can be bothered to accommodate someone who is paying his bill according to the published rules.

        Whatever, the government employees were calm and cool in the whole (heavily edited) video. Don't see any problem with how they're earning their salaries from my tax dollars.

        Try doing this same thing at a grocery store and tell me how that employee reacts. Nice try making this into an issue that it's not! You certainly have a lot of time on your hands -- hmm, you must work in the public sector too, by your logic.

      Typical right wing behavior. They waste their own time (not that they have jobs) and they waste time of others just to have a pseudo sense of entitlement and superiority. I'm surprised this guy didn't blame Obama for his traffic ticket.

        Please stop being close-minded against our possibly conservative friend here (which, by the way, it pisses me off that you have no evidence for him being a conservative other than he's displaying behavior you don't approve of, therefore he must be a specific type of person you don't like). With love, a gay liberal intellectual.

        As a liberal, I kindly invite you to shut the **** up and not make the rest of us look bad. A person of any stripe could pull a stupid stunt like this.

        Man you are delusional if you believe that. People of all stripes display their displeasure for the system. At the end of the day, this post really doesn't deserve a well thought out response, because I can see it being deleted, like most of your other comments are.
