My Childhood Guinea Pig Named Squeaker


<kergoth> anyone messed with protobuf?
<vanRijn> kergoth: i once had a hamster i named protobuf, does that help?
<kergoth> fraid not
<vanRijn> actually, it was a guinea pig
<vanRijn> and it was named Squeaker
<vanRijn> but still
<darth_mall> vanRijn: that’s practically the same thing!
<kergoth> hehe
<vanRijn> darth_mall: I KNOW RIGHT!

I think I’m getting too in touch with my emotions as of late. I actually got a little teared up, thinking about my cute little childhood Guinea Pig named  Squeaker and his untimely demise.

  1. Didn’t you used to scare your guinea pig by slamming your hand down behind it?

  2. I was not scaring him! I was merely motivating him to fulfill his little Guinea Pig potential and jump with his superhuman Guinea Pig strength over the top of the box in front of him! He was Awesome!!!

  3. All childhood Guinea Pig’s deserve a good man cry. Did I ever tell you I ate one in Peru? Really does taste like chicken.

  4. I once tried to get deep fried guinea pig in london. There is *one* peruvian restaurant in the city, and the proprietor assured me that one, it was tasty, two, he wasn’t going to serve it because of issues with local health and safety regulations. Apparently rodent isn’t considered food in england. Rats.

  5. Okay eating guinea pigs! EWWW! Gross on so many levels!!!

  6. @Adriaan: Um. Ewwwww. Although at least guinea pigs are slightly less offensive than, say, rodents with tails. But still… ewwwww.

    Also, I should note that talking about eating my little childhood, adorable, super-jumping, guinea pig friend does not necessarily assuage my feelings of sorrow or loss. Just thought I’d point that out… =;P

  7. Hrm. Just trying to comfort you in knowing had you eaten him, it would have been tasty. Geez. Call me insensitive. 🙂
