Guinea Pig Discovers “PiggyCam”
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
It was only a matter of time.
According to reports, Dexter the guinea pig has finally found the high-tech camera system installed in his cage. Sold commercially as PiggyCam, the setup allows owners and Internet users alike a rare glimpse into the piggy world.
“Yeah, that’s what the box says,” said friend Jeff Cooper. “Truth is, it’s surveillance. Guinea pigs enjoy the same fourth amendment rights that we do. The ACLU would have a field day with this one. ”
Others are less skeptical.
“I don’t see what the problem is, honestly” said Lauren Crump, Dexter’s owner. “I deserve to see all the cute and potentially incriminating things that piggy does when I’m not around – I wonder what he’s up to now.”
Crump was forced to cut our interview short when her PiggyCam Android app began to show nothing but static.
