Posted on 06/18/2013 9:49:26 AM PDT by SatinDoll
This auction is a charity auction for hand-made guinea pig scale-mail. (You've read that correctly)
Is your pet guinea pig tired of wandering around the house unarmored and vulnerable? Do they get picked on by other guinea pigs? Has your guinea pig ever wanted to go with you to a Renaissance Fair but had nothing to wear?
Fear not! A solution is here!
The chain mail is hand made and is in great condition. The helmet was purchased and is also in great condition. Neither are "new"...

My wife spotted this on Ebay last night when the bid was at $1000. Cute, but something only a rich obama supporter could afford.
in your general die-rection!"
Potential Ebay Buyer: Why is that toy on your back?
Guinea Pig: Because if I wear it any place else, it chafes.
Viking guinea pig?
Oh, but I did. However it didn't say if the pig died in combat, was eaten by a cat or was run over by a hot wheel bike........then there's always the possibility it snuck into the clothes dryer with the laundry and died there.
Sadly, we'll never know.......
Did you see that the bid is now up to $24,400?
It was higher a little earlier ($26,100) but it dropped for some reason. Maybe someone pulled their bid.
I peeked a day or so ago and it was $24,000. Good for the charity, but I can think of better uses for that amount of money!
