It will not rent pigs

Or maybe it will, depending on your vendor. A Russian bank will be issuing Angry Birds MasterCards:

Angry Birds MasterCard from Promsvyazbank Bank

Russian fans of the videogame Angry Birds will soon be able to get special debit cards — or “Angry Cards” — giving them discounts on the game’s products.

Moscow-based Promsvyazbank said it will start issuing the new MasterCards on June 4. They will be printed with images of the various characters and will give users a 10 percent discount on all Angry Birds-branded products.

Besides debit cards, the bank will also issue Angry Bird cash cards, which users top up with money. The bank will pay a 4 percent annual interest rate on the card’s balance.

Which frankly is a better deal than you’re going to get from Too Big To Fail Bank (Member FDIC).

    Okay discounts I get… Although why you have to have that particular card for a discount… oh well, never mind.

    I have never understood the appeal of getting a credit card based on how it looks. I am apparently one of the few people of this world who find it mystifying. The card is in my wallet for 99.99999% of the time and only gets pulled out to make a purchase. Why should I care what it looks like as long as it works?

    I have generic-looking Visa and Amex cards, and truth be told, I’d just as soon no one else found them interesting.
