The show that aims to help you make some of the money back you invested in belongings you no longer need or what was hard at it again Saturday.

It's The Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon and you're invited to tune in every Saturday morning from 9-Noon.  You can buy.  You can sell.  Or you can kick back and enjoy the show that has more train wrecks than the largest of HO model tracks.


We ask all our callers a poll question before they give their items.  It's a way for us to get to know you better and it provides a running theme that helps tie the callers together.

This week we had Hillary Clinton on our mind.  Turn on one TV channel and they're singing her praises while covering her bid as the Democratic nominee for president.  Tune to another station and it's almost wall-to-wall coverage of Hillary and "her damn emails".

I found myself pondering what the eventual outcome of both stories will be.  Will she win the presidency?   Is she going to face charges over the email server she had installed in her home, utilized while she was Secretary of State?  Each of those are reasonable questions to ask.  I thought it would be a good topic for our Big Question.

Which is more likely: Hillary the President or Clinton the convict?

Convict: 14

President: 1

People had a hard time answering this question.  Many chose jail over the White House simply because they don't want to see another President Clinton.  A few did agree with my assertion that both outcomes are possible with others believing both could happen.


Along with the regular rules of the program I always bring you a special Rule #6 that changes every week.  It's sometimes inspired by something that happened to me over the last week.  This week I blatantly stole a thought I heard on last week's "Today" show on NBC.

Most products come with warning labels but there is one product whose warning label is somewhat contradictory and a bit amusing.

Rule #6: A Q-tip is the only product to warn you not to use it for the reason you bought it.

Every box of Q-tips and other associated brands clearly print on each package, "Do not insert into ear".  This is like buying a car with a label on the steering wheel saying "Do not drive".  Imagine if Burger King printed on their bags, "Not for human consumption".  It makes me wonder why Big Tobacco hasn't picked up on this and begun printing, "Do not light or inhale" on cigarette packs.

If you should pierce your ear drum while using the thing that works best but is clearly not for that purpose, don't expect a cash settlement from Q-tip.  They told you not to do that!

See you next Saturday for another Erwin Pawn Trade-A-Thon!
