What happens when you suck a Mac power cord?

Before you nominate me for a potential Darwin award, read on. I was working on the Powerbook, and the power cable happened to be unplugged (from the Mac, but plugged into the mains) and lying on the ground. Suddenly I happened to spot my 9 month old baby about to stick it into her mouth -- the end that normally goes into the Mac (held magnetically). I grabbed it from her in time, but have been shuddering ever since at the thought of what might have happened. What I imagine, anyway. Anyone know what would happen?

Macbook or powerbook? You say magnetic, so I'm assuming Macbook. Previously.

you may be surprised to know that this exact question has been asked and empirically researched here before.

Response by poster: jessamyn -- you put me to shame. I always search before posting, but this time I just assumed it wouldn't have been asked before. I'll know better next time. Thanks!

Hey no need to apologize at all, but I'll close this down since it's a 100% double.
