Imponderable #120: The Sewers of Lawton, Oklahoma

20 Mar

March 20, 2014

In these tough economic times, every penny counts. And if that penny happens to be a 20 dollar bill, then it counts 2000 times. So when a man in Lawton, Oklahoma, dropped $20, it was entirely logical that he would want to get it back, even if it meant that he had to climb down a storm drain to get it. That’s where the story starts to get good.


I’ve never been in a storm drain. In fact, ever since I saw Pennywise in It (when you’re dead you’ll float!) I make sure to stay far, far away from sewer drains. My other experience regarding sewers comes from the movie Them!


So if I dropped $20 into a storm drain, would I go after it? No way, Jose. The water in those drainage pipes? It isn’t exactly clean. There’s a reason that Lawton man came out of water-filled sewer system disoriented and dehydrated. If that was the NYC sewer system, he’d also be covered in boils and CHUD bites.

If you dropped $20 into a storm drain, what would you do?

    In my current situation I’d be happy if I had 20 dollars to drop anywhere… and even in my situation, I’d leave it where it is, the rats could spend it more wisely than I would…

    If I dropped $20 in a sewer drain I would go see a doctor. I’m such a miser I would have to be out of my mind to let go of a $20 Bill!

    I would reach my hand in, get a scratch and sue the city for 20 million for having unsafe drains.

      Also sue the government for printing slippery bills.
