Selling your gold? GET CASH NOW. Just kidding, nobody wants to buy your ugly old jewelry. What they do want to buy is other gold things, like Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Snack Crackers and the Blu-ray box set of all seven seasons of The Golden Girls. What are the best gold things ever in history? Ever since James W. Marshall discovered gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848, America has had veritable gold fever. In the decades since, gold has made its way into everything from dogs (Golden Retriever) to gymnasiums (Gold's Gym) to 1980s TV dance programs (Solid Gold). Why, the fictional town of Hill Valley, California, even elected a man named Goldie Wilson to serve as its Mayor for at least 8 years!

Gold popularity is not restricted to this side of the pond (Atlantic Ocean), either. Gold is popular in such things as The Golden Snitch at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the James Bond film Goldeneye, and also the video game Goldeneye 007. Do non-Americans enjoy the comedic stylings of Bobcat Goldthwait and/or Nancy Gold? You bet they might. Foreign teens might even try to choke down some Goldschläger Schnapps or even try some Golden Grahams cereal. Un-pre-dictable!

What are your favorite gold, golden, goldie, or goldish people, foods, films, or whatever? Vote them up, or make sure to add them to the list.
