Does Your Guinea Pig Like To Get All Mid-Evil? eBay Listing You MUST See!

by Ben Olson

In one of the more unusual eBay auctions we've ever seen, up for grabs is a suit of armor for a guinea pig! With only a couple of days left in the auction, the bidding has already reached $500 bucks for the tiny yet quite authentic helmet and suit. All we know about the seller is he or she is American and uses the name "mightys0x." The seller made the bizarre suit by hand for his own guinea pig but is now auctioning it off after the pet passed away. The eBay listing asks: "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!" By the way, all proceeds from the sale will go to local charity, the Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue in Virginia.(Ananova)
