Everyone it seems is getting on the gold bandwagon, from hedge-fund whiz David Einhorn to that lady on the Cash4Gold commercial who “sent in her diamond wedding band from her first marriage and got cash the very next day!”
Ah, the smell of melted gold and charred love. It’s the new apple pie!
So, it shouldn’t have come as any surprise that financial trainwrecks Ed McMahon and MC Hammer showed up on Super Bowl Sunday, ready to toss the golden remnants of their success on the Cash4Gold pyre in exchange for a small chunk of change.
There was Ed McMahon, who used to deliver the giant-sized Publisher’s Clearinghouse checks, ready to send everything from gold cufflinks to his golden commode to the meltdown shop to save his house … and maybe his career.
And, MC Hammer, who has apparently reversed his “Can’t Touch This” policy, ready to rip out everything, from his gold record on the wall to his golden sledgehammer — and watch them burn.
