... bizarre pawn attempts

1. A trophy mounted bear, in reared position

2. Gold teeth (a frequent offering)

3. A swimming pool

4. A loaded and cocked 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun (dropped on the service counter, pointing at employees, by a woman with a baby on her hip)

5. Bag of leather S&M "toys," including a mask, whip, and various rubber items (mistakenly presumed to be horse tack before the bag was opened)

Says who? Charlie Bliss, 15-year pawn veteran at Ace Loans (2339 Platte Place, 632-1559)
