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.

5 Month Wait for Reservations at Cat Sushi Master’s Restaurant
Neko, a Manhattan-based cat and sushi expert, has become America’s foremost sushi chef almost overnight. His tiny 8-seat restaurant located in New York’s Greenwich Village only opened in August but it already has a five month waiting list for reservations.
“It’s 100% completely worth the wait and steep $350 price tag for the 6-roll tasting menu,” raved celebrity food critic Gail Simmons in a recent issue of Food & Wine magazine.
Neko, who is the hottest thing to burst onto the NYC culinary scene since the cronut, seems a shoo-in for a James Beard Rising Star award this year.
Analysts: Humans May Never Understand the Appeal of Dog Music
Ever look through your dog’s record collection and think to yourself, “What is this crap?”
You’re not alone. A new study from the Canine Institute of Comparative Culture suggests that the gulf between human and dog tastes in music may never be overcome.
“We have different brains,” says Ronald Stark, who lead the study. “So while humans may like Mozart or AC/DC, dogs will enjoy bands like Butt Sniffers Club or The Bacon Brothers. They have different harmonic structures which will never be amenable to our ears.”
