When I was listening to AP Radio News of Eagle 810 (Far East Network), the only English language public radio broadcasting service available in Japan, together with members of a local English Speaking Society, who wish to improve English hearing proficiency, there was the following line reporting 85th Anniversary of Coney Island’s Cyclone roller coaster:
“In honor of 85th Anniversary, ride is just a quarter for the first 85 minutes, the coaster was open. Michel Hamline says it is worth every penny and ...," followed by the word that sounds something like “men some” phonetically.
We couldn’t hear out the ending words sounding like “men some.” though we tried by replaying the tape a dozen times.
I could have passed by this part, but was haunted with the question. So I'm venturing to ask:
Is there a set of words that can be combined with “worth every penny” as an idiom?
I thought “worth every penny” is a self-completing idiom sui generi, and wondered why it should be followed by anything.
Can you guess what the part that sounded like “men some” would be?
