"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?"
These are questions that one Ebay user seriously wanted to put to rest. User mightys0x's pet guinea pig Lucky passed away recently and he's decided to make the best of his loss. Lucky's scale male armor and guinea pig-sized steel helmet are being auctioned off.
Instead of keeping the money from the auction, the current owner of the armor is donating his profits to Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue, a non-profit Virginia corporation that rescues, rehabilitates, and finds new homes for guinea pigs.
Currently the bidding is up to $23,100. Somebody's little guinea must has a pretty big battle in his future!
