hey........i just made a batch of sushi with some stuff i found down at the fishin' hole...........you wanna be my guinea pig??? we just invented a new prototype for some high rise safety equipment.........better find ourselves a couple of guinea pigs to test it out. scientists need to test their new pills that clean your internal organs from the inside.........any guinea pigs looking for a gig??? i've watched clips of scientific research experiments on TV. i've seen movies depicting evil scientist labs where monsters were being developed by injecting numerous caged animals with some kind of evil elixir. i've even seen some disturbing photos of actual animal experiments in magazines put out by PETA and other animal rights groups. i've seen lab rats, white mice, rabbits, monkeys, cats, dogs, pigs, bugs, worms, other rodents and small animals.......and of course humans being experimented on. but i don't think i've ever actually seen anyone use a guinea pig as a guinea pig!!! have you??? why do we use guinea pig when referring to a test subject??? why don't we say........"i made meatloaf.......who wants to be my white mice"??? do you think a long time ago guinea pigs got fed up with the lousy work conditions and formed a union which gave them the opportunity to no longer take that line of work???

i have also seen those gruesome photos where the animals are used for testing but then again it is inhuman to use humans as guinea pigs.considering either one has to be used,i would go for the former!!

haha good point. that is very true. i don't think i've noticed any ACTUAL guinea pigs being used either. maybe they used to use nothing but guineas a long time ago, and the phrase stuck? i really have no idea lol.

Maybe the guinea pig went on strike and so they started using the white mouse and monkeys. Cute observations though..it is true that they call animals and people guinea pigs when they want to test something on them.
