In my opinion, the old "All Devouring Black Hole Loan Sharks" was better. Simply saying "Loan Shark" looks kind of bland, and I can't imagine anybody looking at the title "All-Devouring Black Hole Loan Sharks" and not knowing what it means.

The "Truth in Television" section is debatable. Real life loan sharks don't want to hurt you, they just want to keep you from ever being able to reach the principle from under all the interest. The idea is to put you in debt forever.

Why was the name changed? All Devouring Black Hole Loan Sharks worked fine.

discussion carried over from All Devouring Black Hole Loan Sharks: From YKTTW here. Pastafarian: Please don't use obscure acronyms. What the hell does PHSE mean? Scifantasy: I'm guessing "Personal Health and Safety Education." Bobby G: I think the S is for "social", but that's the gist of it. Anyway, I reinstated a whole bunch of details which were unceremoniously removed from this article due to containing parentheses. Few of these appeared to be Parabombing, and most were simply legitimate use of the punctuation. I tried to avoid using the brackets wherever there was an obvious way to do so when reinstating the information, but it wasn't always easy, and I don't see why I should jump through hoops to avoid the use of brackets when they are, after all, a perfectly valid form of punctuation. Bobby G: Removed the following Natter:
- Say wha? I not only killed quite a few of them, but I even got to keep a few of their cars. Of course I had to pay it off eventually just to keep the helicopters from after me...
- The resolution was played for laughs, but has some dark undertones since this was one of the major reasons for anti-semitic violence in medieval times. Only the Jews could lend money, usury being a sin for Christians, and if a Jew died, all of the debts owed him disappeared.
- Unfortunately for them, however, This Troper had spent all the loan money on guns. And explosives. Hilarity ensued.
