    Nails were originally sold as a price, in pennies, per hundred.

    A 10-penny nail cost 10 pennies per hundred. A smaller 6-penny nail cost six pennies per hundred.

    The "d" stands for the Roman, "denarius," which was similar to a penny in Great Britain where that was the abbreviation for "penny" before the currency was decimalized.

    How much would the Threepenny Opera cost now?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Didn't that take place in Germany? I know it was written by Bertold Brecht.

    I don't think it took him long, but the music took a Weill.

    BTW, for the first production Brecht didn't have enough money to pay a lead actress, so Weill said Kurtly, "Don't worry. I've got a Lotte Lenya."
