Unless you are weak stomached, go for it and have fun with it.
I'll voluteer the description of the cord my husband gave me,"It was like white, but with like blue inside it. You could see the blue, but not really. It was thick, like the size of my thumb. The little scissors they gave me wouldn't cut it in one snip, I had to, like, push the scissors and saw through it. It was weird. Kinda gross."
