They list all the things they sell for hard cash and it goes something like this: Cash for the merchandise, cash for the hard goods Cash for the soft goods, cash for the fancy goods Cash for the noggins and the piggins and the firkins Cash for the hogsheads, casks and demijohns Cash for the crackers and the pickles and the flypaper.
