August 22, 2008: Guinea Pig Festival

Every time a picture of a cute critter is posted, you sickos turn the thread into a recipe swap.

Hah! The Telegraph has pictures of the ladies of Huacho, Peru, that are way ahead of you pikers.

At their annual Guinea Pig Festival, the ladies have Guinea Pigs....

dressed up....


....and with dressing.



ZenGum  Friday Aug 22 02:57 AM

Damn, they look so much like that weiner dog/sweet potato we just had!



spudcon  Friday Aug 22 07:10 AM

They're not dressing much different, just wider brimmed hats



Bibliomaniac  Friday Aug 22 08:45 AM

Is that what happened to Dramatic Groundhog?!?!






Shawnee123  Friday Aug 22 09:14 AM

Man, is this the first IotD where all the food jokes are already illustrated and documented?



el fantastico  Friday Aug 22 10:50 AM

but for some reason it has made me hungrier than most i have read.

now, are those chunks of cheese or butter on top? (just helps me know what kind of chile sauce to pour over the top.)



birdclaw  Friday Aug 22 12:18 PM

I have to say that I usually find the recipe swap rather humorous. But with pictures it's just not the same.



Gravdigr  Friday Aug 22 01:22 PM

Eh...Rats is rats.

While in Otavalo, Ecuador a number of years ago, I ordered up the national delicacy of guinea pig. Can't say I would order it again.. there's not much meat on them, and it was kinda greasy.

Also a little creepy considering I used to have one as a pet as a child.



newtimer  Friday Aug 22 05:40 PM

Dang! Is that what happens to the loser of the beauty contest? If so, it would explain the worried expressions on those two guinea pigs in the first photo.



Aliantha  Saturday Aug 23 08:06 AM

They had these guinea pig eating people on a travel show here recently.

I don't think I could eat a guinea pig. It just seems too much like rat to me.

Maybe we should extend the policy to the Miss America Pageant.

Miss Texas - BBQ sauce
Miss Hawaii - Pineapple Glaze
Miss California - vegetarians get a free pass. It's karma.

I can hear my mommy even now: Quit playing with your food!



TheMercenary  Saturday Aug 23 01:31 PM

that first pic would make some great LOL or ORLY pics.

i never heard of carnivorous guinea pigs--must be larger than the usual sized pigs...


Agent-G  Tuesday Aug 26 02:13 AM

sweet..so they dress them up, then eat them.



Gravdigr  Wednesday Sep 3 04:10 PM

Come on people!!! Not one Richard Gere/guinea pig up his ass joke?? Not one? Really?



lookout123  Wednesday Sep 3 04:13 PM

Probably didn't occur to people because the story refers to hamsters.

Guinea pigs are quite a bit larger.


Cloud  Thursday Sep 4 08:32 PM

I find dressing up your food in cute lil' costumes before you eat it quite disturbing.

No, because it was Jerry Penacoli, with a hamster.

No no no, it was a Gerbil, folks.
That's why I invented the "Gerbil Jerk", to avoid tragic endings.


BrianR  Friday Sep 5 12:54 AM

I thought it was a gerbil also...

Urban legends tend to morph as they travel. I suspect the details of the story depend on where and when you heard it.

There are about 39,000 google entries for gere and gerbil. About 72,000 for gere and hamster. You could probably plot a US map of who heard what story - like the map of what people call carbonated drinks.

There's probably a graduate project in social science in there somewhere.


HungLikeJesus  Friday Sep 5 10:47 AM

I thought it was a pineapple.



Sundae  Friday Sep 5 11:07 AM

No, that's Mau Mau



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Sep 5 11:20 AM

Pamplemousse!!



BrianR  Friday Sep 5 08:16 PM

<snicker> the pineapple comment reminded me of a joke I played on some gay guys at a vending fair...

They had very large, er, sex toys for sale and the size amazed almost everyone. At one point, I slipped off to the supermarket, bought a pineapple and brought it back to our table, which was close to theirs. I sneaked one of their price tags off, put it on the fruit, and secreted the pineapple on their shelf. The looks on people's faces were priceless, as well as the fact that it took them two hours to spot the plant.
