Lost battle

guinea_pigs_tales_Data_profileFirst of all, we are sorry for our absence. But… We were very busy campaigning, planning and executing in order to help Kirk winning the contest launched by Kevin the Cavy.

Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, Kirk is some 120 votes behind the Guinea Pig on the first place. We suspect that piggy taking over his human Facebook account and hacking all the friends’ accounts to get votes. Of course, maybe he is more fortunate and his human has a lot of Facebook friends, not like ours that have only four hundred something (the female) and one hundred (the male).

Anyway, we were really creative and all working for the same purpose, including the human female. She gave us access to her Facebook account and her own blog and we could spam all her “friends” with requests for votes. Some of other Romanian bloggers and friends even helped us and shared our message.

Worf was in charge of supervising the contest album and the number of votes. He had spent so many days staring at that screen that he almost turned into a mole. Not that it would have been very difficult as he is already black and brown…


Spock was in charge of the campaign flyers and he managed to do a good job. He even abstained himself from chewing the posters.


Of course I was in charge of planning and organizing everything, so I’ve spent several days buried in papers and analyzing names, sending messages and fighting for our cause.


Kirk had only one thing to do: stay in shape. And he seems to be very good at it.


So, we admit we have no means to overlap the difference of votes. But we are very thankful for the almost 300 votes we already got. Our Facebook page has only 83 followers, so we never expected so many votes. Anyway, if you still want to help and vote, you can do it following this link.

I’m going to be sad in my corner…


Campaigning for Kirk

guinea_pigs_tales_profile_kirkEurope is in the middle of some elections for the European Parliament. Also some countries are electing their own parliaments… USA had some elections also. So, we thought, why not campaigning for something?! All these frenzy got us and we don’t want to stay aside.

As we do not like politics, it was a tough decision to pick the subject of our campaign. Fresh vegies and the right to poop and pee whenever and wherever were already gained by our ancestors. The right of having a human servant is also implicit, so what should we fight for?! But thanks to Kevin the Cavy we found a purpose in life! At least for short term… So, I was asked by the Gang to participate in the contest and run for the possibility to have an appearance in a sketch. It was hard to accept this challenge, but I had to admit my pictures were the cutest.

The goal had been settled, how about the champagne?! Data underlined very well that we should focus on Facebook given the fact that I need some likes. Everyone participated in the making off of this champagne! Being focused on Facebook, an investment in banners and flyers is almost useless and we decided to save the money for diapers and fresh vegies.

But on we unleashed the beast on Facebook! The human female took this very personally and threatened her more than 400 “friends” with excommunication in case they don’t vote for me. True, not all of them check the updates regularly, so I yesterday I had only 85 votes, but she is fighting for it. I just hope her boss won’t find out and fire her…

In case you want to hack into your biped’s Facebook account and vote for me, you can give a like here. And if you are not yet convinced I’m cute enough to win, just take a look of this picture.
