Today in our ongoing Aren't Foreign Cultures Juuuuuust Precious and Adorable series, we take a look at a guinea pig festival in Peru.
They dress the adorable little creatures in local garb and parade them around in a fashion show.
Hello, your royal highness. And is this your lovely wife?
Even adorable children love the festival, adorably kissing the adorable guinea pigs in an adorable manner.
Guinea pigs love corn. Hmmmm... I wonder why they're standing on a grill.
OH MY GOD THEY"RE EATING THE CUTE ANIMALS!!!!!! SWEET MERCIFUL CHRIST, THE PARADE OF ADORABLENESS HAS TURNED INTO A FEAST OF UNENDING SADNESS!!!!!! OH THE HUMANITY! OH THE CULTURAL DIFFERENCES!
Plus, who grills or frys a guinea pig? You pan sear it in some butter, then finish it off in the oven. It's in Thomas Keller's French Laundry Cookbook, under the section on eating animals that are considered household pets in America. When will Peru learn about proper food preparation?
