How to Handle Ridiculous Bills

I love Consumerist - I learn all sorts of fun ways to deal with big business. In this article, the consumer complains about receiving a $0.19 bill from AmEx and, in revenge, making the payment with multiple checks. As inevitably happens on Consumerist, all the initial posts are supportive, and all the latter posts completely bash the evil consumer. I have to come down in favor of the consumer here. Considering the number of places that I shop with signs saying that "due to the high cost of processing, they will no longer accept checks", then paying a $0.19 bill with multiple checks is a great silent protest in my book.
