Harold Bankula answers FAQ

Harold "Count" Bankula
is Magic Mint VP of Finance.  A former mortgage executive, Harold has over 30
years experience in
the lending business.

When someone lends me money do I have to pay them back?   Usually people are expected to pay back money they borrow.  In your case, with your celebrity status, it may be different.  Perhaps your lender feels OK simply giving money away since it's for the star of 
"Moochinator III- The Whining Years".
If I had money I wouldn't need to borrow any.  So how can I pay it back?  That sounds like a personal problem.  One you should take up with your teddy bears at the next committee meeting.
What does date due mean?  Is it anything to worry about?  Date due is the day you're supposed to deliver cash to your lender.  As far as worrying, don't worry too much.  It's not your style.  Besides, it cuts into time you need to spend shopping-- shopping for BenGay and an eye patch.
Is Magic Mint FDIC insured?  No, they're too piddling for us.  We're insured by the same guy you owe money to.  That's why we firmly believe you should stop messing with him, and why, if push comes to shove, we'll take his side in a street fight.
Can I cut a Magic Mint instead of using my charge card?  While you're welcome to do that, we wouldn't advise it.  They might confuse you with Billy Buttons, the four year old in our logo.
What about restaurants?  Yes, but only at Dummy Burger and Captain Leech Seafood.
How about the pizza delivery guy? Sure, assuming he arrives in a UFO and can't contact his shop back on Planet Numbnut.
The cable company just returned the IOU for my cable TV.  What should I do?  Take 'em to court.  Try the law firm of Swindle, Snivel and Densue.  If you lose your case, switch to satellite.  Not as many choices, but they do have your favorite show-- "World's Darndest Didos" on the Shiny Objects Channel.
