Credit Card Blog - Don't Eat Your Credit Card!

 Thursday, 22 March 2007

For years we’ve been telling people to watch their interest rates and pay off credit cards as quickly as possible, since there is no reason you should be eating interest. Now for an even more important public announcement: Don’t eat your credit card!

Why shouldn’t you eat your credit card? Well, in addition to it making it difficult to purchase overpriced gasoline or a new TV to replace the one you broke due to a certain Wii mishap, it turns out they really aren’t that good for you. Who knew?

Polyvinyl chloride acetate (PVCA) core consisting of multiple layers of fused, laminated plastic
Various inks and dyes for coloring
Various plasticizers for physical consistency
Magnetic inks and metal oxides

Ingesting PVCA isn’t exactly a good idea. While the alluring aroma and mouthwatering taste may be too much to resist, PVCA isn’t the modern man’s non-soluble fiber. Just look at how this little guy reacted to the lab tests:

Inks and dyes will probably stain your teeth more than that 10yr old cabernet sauvignon, and if you get a little too much magnetic ink, well, you might end up like this girl:.

Metal oxides are no laughing matter either; consult poison control immediately.

We hope that in some small way, this public service announcement helps you to steer clear from the dangerous habit of eating credit cards. Next week we’ll tackle the bitter taste left behind by sub prime mortgages.
