THE GIDDY PIGS

Snow Pigs have gone south!
Thursday, January 25, 2018 - 08:15
During this extreme weather, most local pigs have mailed themselves south. "We don't mind having them around," said a Quebecer biped in South Florida, "but they do have to watch out for the crocodiles and alligators!"
Indeed, South Florida is the only region in which both crocodiles and alligators co-exist, making safety an even greater concern for the guinea pigs. "Normally we negotiate our safety through travel treaties and bribery," explained Bella (pictured), a regular Floridian snow pig and head of the Guinea Pig Safety Commission (GPSC). "In fact, in our negotations now, the alligators have agreed to be transport carriers for guinea pigs whose feet get very hot on the sand here. This was in return for increased dog and cat flow on the beach - much bigger, and as we've scientifically proven, tastier, for alligators."
However, the alligator treaty negotiations have unsettled the previously negotiated Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the crocodiles, disrupting current relations and putting the safety of everyone at risk. "We hope to resume negotiations soon," said Bella, "But crocodiles are very unpredictable."
It's that time of year!

At GiddyPigs.com, the mail pigs are working furiously to sort and pile all of Butchie, Bella, Banana, Pan and Rodin's gifts. Of course, Butchie has received the most, being the fattest and the most social, but even shy little Banana has her admirers. Indeed, one little pig is so smitten with Banana that she mailed herself to GiddyPigs.com! She was immediately hired as chief shipping analyst.

Pan Off Social Media for Good?!?
Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - 07:32
Several guinea pigs have been fighting recently and took to social media to air their grievances. However, in the midst of below-the-belt digs and insults, Pan did the unthinkable and unfriended Butchie. "This is an OUTRAGE!!" tweeted Butchie - but alas, there was no response from Pan who is now refusing to use all social media. "The silent treatment, while difficult to maintain, is one of the most effective ways to disarm your opponent," explained Pigmund Void, renowned quadruped psycho analyst and personal trainer. Will we ever hear from Pan again? We can only hope that after amonth or two she will resurface. After all, Selena Gomez came back!

Butchie Seeks Nature Cure for Urban Angst
Many who were concerned for Butchie after his existential crisis last month are hoping that a Labour Day weekend camping trip will provide the tranquility he needs to recharge.
Unfortunately, one of his tweets left many worried that nature may in fact be compounding the urban pig's anxiety level. “ABT2 nap. Hope no cats! What's that noise?!?” tweeted Butchie from his camp site at an undisclosed backyard in the Glebe...

GiddyPigs Summer Human Intern Program (SHIP) Winners!
Sunday, May 28, 2017 - 10:43
GiddyPigs is pleased to announce their final choice for the two coveted mail room positions offered each year through the Summer Human Intern Program (SHIP): Julian and Enzo from Lindenlea!
Interns are chosen based on a rigorous competency testing program that runs throughout the winter months, including Guinea Pig Pick Up and Delivery (GP-PUD), Guinea Pig Continuous Chin Scratch Sessions (GP-CCSS), Nicastro Shopping (NS), and of course, Adeptness Using the GiddyPigs Parsleyccino Machine (AUGPPM).
Both Julian and Enzo scored 100% on all but the GP-PUD test, claiming that Butchie weighed too much and was difficult to carry. Marwut, poet and Human Resources Advisor agreed, noting that "Allowances were made on the GP-PUD test because Butchie is indeed a very fat guinea pig" due, it is rumoured, to his illegal organic parsley consumption.
"We are extremely proud and happy to have Julian and Enzo on board to handle the mail room whilst we attend corporate conferences this summer," said Zeus, as he left for the arboretum to "review" the grass and clover growth.
UPDATE: See Glebe Report for the latest on the two new interns!
Spring is here
An anonymous source, Valmont, has provided the Glebe Report with several disturbing break-up letters to Zeus citing selfishness, food addiction, and general laziness as deal-breakers. It appears that after last month’s publication of his controversial Me-First (MF)TM theory in Psychology Tomorrow, Zeus’ paramours decided to kick him to the curb once and for all.
As a Registered Couples Counselor, and the founder of the World Institute of Narcissism (WIN), Zeus is often called upon to assist couples through rough times.
