These Piggy Banks Are Really Excited To Accept Your Change

Back when we were kids, piggy banks were demure, rather stoic beasts, who humbly accepted our change through the traditional slot in the back. But times, they are a-changin’. Lady Gaga rules the airwaves, Britney Spears has kids and these little piggies, submitted by a reader, are a new breed of bank.

Not content to stand and wait with a blank-eyed animal stare, these plucky fellows, spotted at a Hallmark store, are making themselves comfy while they await your quarters.

It’s as if they’re saying to us, “Hey there. You got money to save? Why not switch it up and try something new, something exciting? Come on, you know you want to.”

We don’t know whether we’re disturbed or amused, but hey, change can be good, right?
