This comic combines the holiday tradition of giving out and consuming chocolate coins, which are chocolate formed in the shape of coins with foil wrappers and the Coinstar vending machines that you see frequently in Grocery stores and shopping malls around the US. The Coinstar machines take all your coins, sort and count them and then give you the amount of money in cash (less 9 or 10% as it says in the title text - but if you get the Amazon gift card, you can keep the whole proceeds.)
The joke is that the chocolate coin damages the machine.
- [A mischievous, curious person empties a small bag into a whrrring machine.]
- [Machine makes progressively less happy *kachunk*, *tshhhh*, *clickclickclick* and *grind* noises.]
- [Machine pops, then beeps in a tone of utter defeat.]
- Holiday tip: Coinstar does not handle chocolate coins well.
