WARNING: THIS BLOG MAY BE DISTURBING TO SOME. IF YOU ARE OFFENDED BY IMAGES OF HAMSTERS BEING COMPRIMISED, PLEASE CLOSE THIS BLOG IMMEDIATELY.

So please, if you care about these adorable hamsters, call us now, at 555-HAMSTER. Oh no, I just realized something else. HAMsters! The horror, the horror! And guinea PIGS. Were these poor animals designed and designated just to be exploited? Why, their name is all over it.
