    Get more kicks than halfpennies

    Hi all,
    I have a doubt about the meaning of the following:
    «I shall get more kicks than halfpennies doing that»
    I was thinkig about two possible meanings:


    1.- I am going to have more lows than highs

    2.- I will receive more pleasure than money doing that (whatever), I shall do that just for fun, not for the money.

    What do you think?

    Thanks!

    Neither is quite right. It means: "I will not receive anything of any value from doing this."
