It turns out that there are people who breed guinea pigs for show.
Like “Best in Show”? Everybody’s favorite mockumentary involving dogs? Except with guinea pigs.
Now, I like the little rodents as well as anyone. And when I get my two (who will be male and female and named, respectively, Jupiter and Waffle), I will show them to anyone who cares to look. But I wouldn’t put them IN a show.
Because I believe a guinea pig’s life should be about much, much more than a shallow modelling career.
Cue Ben Stiller. As a guinea pig.
