This Is Not a Luxury Item. Really.

This item is currently up for bid on eBay.

I just...I don't's so...squeeeeeeee.
Look closer, Drunkards. It's a suit of chain mail for a guinea pig.


Here's a link to the eBay listing.  For God's sake, click on it.

No? Well, then, here's an actual honest-to-Pigu quote from the listing:

"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 Faire but had nothing to wear?

Fear not! A solution is here!"

Yes. YES.
 As of this writing, there are just under four days remaining in this auction. Thus far the guinea pig chain mail has received 74 bids, and the bidding stands at $1,325.00

Which is a bargain. Look at that picture and tell me that shit isn't PRICELESS.

I want to buy this for Precocious Daughter's guinea pig, Muinea Guinea. She would look adorable in it. OK, any guinea pig would look adorable in it. And invincible.


If you want to bid on it and then send it to me when you win, just send me an e-mail ( and I'll give you my mailing address.

PDaughter and I will send you a thank-you note and a photo of Muinea wearing her new threads. Promise.

*love this so much*


  1. It's days like this when I wish I had a stash of stupid money for things just like this.

  2. Oh my everything awesome-sauce! This is truly AMAZING!!! I can totally see why you want this for Muinea Guinea. I don't even HAVE a guinea pig and I want it! "Squee!" is a completely appropriate response to this.

  3. That is freaking awesome. In a zombie apocolypse, THIS is the only rodent that will be safe. Incidentally, he's safe from Richard Gere visiting as well.

  4. I tried to like Joy's comment. Obviously I spend entirely too much time on FB.

    Squeeeeee. And squeee some more. I want this. I need to get a guinea pig first. But I need the armor. Priorities.

  5. Wow, thirteen hundred bucks for guinea pig armour! Why can I never think of ideas like this?

  6. Well, when I win the power ball this week, I will certainly purchase this for you and pdaughter! What guinea pig wouldn't want to roam around wearing a suit of armor? Hell, if I could find one in my size, I'd rocked that shizz as well!!

  7. God, this would be so awesome for our Pinterest Nightmare series! And you should totally send this to The Bloggess...seems right up her alley! ;)-Ashley

  8. $23,100 is the current bid... wow. That's all I've got, is wow!


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
