HuffPo- The man, who goes by the apt YouTube moniker “Bacon Moose,” explains his actions in the video description: I got this ticket in a town where the cops (and absurd redlight cameras) are pretty much a money trap and that’s it. I decided to pay in an appropriate manner — 137 origami pig $1 bills, put in a pair of dozen-donut dunkin donut boxes.The $1 piggies took around six hours to prepare. But “Bacon Moose” said he believes it was well worth it. “[I] paid in style,” he said.
Well if Bacon Moose says it was well worth it, then it was well worth it. Such a great fuck you to cops- the kind that everyone wants to pull off, but no one follows through with. Not because we don’t want to, but because we have other pesky things getting in the way of devoting six hours to origami. Things like work and contact with humans and lives. Judging by the arm girth and patchy hair patterns at the 2:15 mark, I’d guess that Bacon Moose didn’t have a loaded schedule of social events to compete with. No comic book movies set to release this week so he’s good. It’s that downtime in between Call of Duty games so the world is Bacon Moose’s oyster. To be honest, anybody crazy enough to make 137 origami pigs rather than shooting up a public place is a win in today’s society. At least “Its Pat” and the rest of the cops were good sports about it. That was like 700 pounds of white trash virginity just shooting the shit and unfolding pig dollars.
