Guinea Pig Scale-mail and Helmet (Armor)
Ebay ^ | June 17, 2013 | mightys0x

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!

Used

“The chain mail is hand made and is in great condition. The helmet was purchased and is also in great condition. Neither are "new"...

That is awesome looking. I always had hamsters, but they just went around naked.

It was actually the the ferociousness and the difficulty in killing the armored war Guinea Pigs of the early medieval period that was the root of the werewolf legends.

Yes! The English longbow, the forerunner of modern artillery, proved particularly useless against these nasty little armored war Guinea Pigs. The losses sustained by the British were staggering...and grossly under reported.

You can tell, though, by the number of skeletons that have been dug up with fatal ankle bites. The bones, mon. Look at the booooooones!

Lucky the guinea pig passed away, so his armor is up for sale.

cooking guinea pigs, rats, and hedgehogs...

Roll in mud...

cook on open fire...

when mud is baked hard ...peel off complete with fur, spikes etc....

tastes like spotted owl...but gamy.

Guinea Pigs are among the sweetest creatures on God's green earth. My daughter got us hooked on them. They are sociable, cuddly and low maintenance. After our daughter's died, we had to get another, then another, then another.

Each one had a different personality. One of them loved perching on my wife's ample bosoms and nibbling her ear. I told her only female guinea pigs after he passed!

My wife spotted this on Ebay last night when the bid was at $1000. Cute, but something only a rich obama supporter could afford.

Potential Ebay Buyer: Why is that toy on your back?

Guinea Pig: Because if I wear it any place else, it chafes.

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!
