Guinea pigs devour Brussels sprouts

Enjoy the intense wheeking joy of an entire clan of guinea pigs feasting on the remains of their defeated enemies.

Correction: An earlier version of this post referred to the noises made by the Guinea pigs as "squeaking." The noise they are making, indicative of begging at mealtime, is called "wheeking." Boing Boing regrets the error.

  1. I like Brussels sprouts when they are roasted. But better yet, on pizza and I'm going to do my best tonite, as a matter of fact. The oven is heating now. For a frame of reference, this was taken at Motorino in the East Village, NYC:

  2. I wouldn't want to light a match in there for the next few hours.

  3. As a proud owner of two guinea pigs I must chime in to correct your reporting. That is not "squeaking." It is known as "wheeking." (http://www.guineapighub.com/guinea-pig-sounds/) It is a form of excitement/begging that happens around dinner time.

    Interestingly, if all guinea pig references are to be believed, it is only made by pet guinea pigs towards humans. They do not make the sound in the wild, at least not in the same way and to mean the same thing.

    If your guinea pigs squeaks, you hurt it.

  4. I have corrected the post. I regret the error.
