If you get pulled over and you have time to suck on a penny will it help you pass the test, or does it like mess up the test at all?

    sucking on a penny would do nothing except making you sound funny when talking to the officer.

    the idea is that the copper would have some affect on the breathalyzer, but it wouldn't even if a penny was made of 100% copper.

    A breathalyzer works by the fact that alcohol diffuses through all tissues in your body. That means you literally breath it out. If you can inhale a penny, maybe. But I don't think you'll be very happy after that anyhow.
