THE GIDDY PIGS
A small business empire run by
two five rather handsome guinea pigs
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!

Thursday, February 23, 2017 - 07:29Zeus' new streamlined website is finally here. Giving directions to web designers is exhausting, so Zeus and long-time companion Heidi have decided to spend some quality time recuperating at a spa in Puerco Rico.For those anxiously awaiting the sequel to Puck's Paradox, entitled Delilah's Doubts, please be assured that Zeus is working hard, even while on vacation.Delilah's Doubts takes young readers through the philosophical meditations of Rene Descartes.In fact, after two years and three grants, Zeus is proud to announce he has completed the opening paragraph:"Delilah had been looking forward to the Dow's Lake picnic with her friends all week. She especially loved the big willow trees that looked like green fountains and the wooden arched bridge over the creek. It was summer and the grass and clover were at their juiciest.Delilah did have one very bad habit at picnics. It involved biting. She tended to bite at least one friend, usually Puck, at picnics. And rather hard."To support the second paragraph of Zeus' book, please direct donations Erling's Variety, indicating payment toward Zeus' bar bill.DISCLAIMER: Giddypigs is not responsible for the behaviour of readers or fans.
