A man paid a $137 traffic ticket with 137 pig-shaped origami bills in Dunkin' Donut boxes that frustrated and amused the clerk and officers at the police station.

The man, who goes by the moniker "Bacon Moose," uploaded a video of the encounter to YouTube. The $1 piggies took about six hours to prepare.

In the video, a clerk refuses to accept the payment and calls an officer who tells the man to unfold the bills.

"That's pretty cool and that took a lot of time. Little piggies in a donut box. I got it, I got it," the officer said.

OK So this took him six hours and he thinks he insulted the police. Well...he paid the fine and wasted his time and the violation goes on his driving record. He will be paying more for car insurance. Wow.. I'm all insulted and he really showed me.

That's pretty funny. And clever. He obviously has too much time on his hands.

I think it's awesome he did this. He could have paid with a check or by credit card, but that he chose to do this, in a way is civil disobedience. What must have been going through his head: "I'll pay my fine, but I'll have a little fun at your expense." I'd imagine there are a few people who appreciated his act and sent him money in gratitude of such a satirical act of non-violent resistance.

I would have taken up a collection from fellow officers and paid the fine. then put the artwork up on display, to show that there are non-violent, original and sometimes humorous ways that people deal with their anger towards the establishment. If you can't laugh along with this your heart's not in the right place.
