The imagination of the internet and of non-profit fundraisers reached an all-time high today. Animal lovers and Game of Thrones enthusiasts must visit eBay to bid on a set of handmade guinea pig chainmail, complete with helmet.
Not since Monty Python’s vicious killer rabbit has a small, docile mammal been so fierce. (And in that altercation, it was the humans that wore the armor).
Note that the armor and helmet are used. The seller, eBay user mightys0x, wove the mail for their late pet, guinea pig Lucky.
In Lucky’s memory, one-hundred percent of the proceeds from the auction will go to Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue, a non-profit based in Northern Virginia that rescues and rehabilitates Cavia porcellus in Metro DC.
