Guinea Pigs Eat Watermelon, Your Heart Explodes From Cuteness Overload


If you need a pick-me-up today, look no further than this video of guinea pigs straight chomping on some delicious watermelon. I don’t know what it is about little critters eating giant fruit that’s so damn adorable, but guinea pigs and watermelon are a winning combination.

I don’t know. I just came up with that term. Whatever it is, it’s cute.

Here’s the most famous of all guinea pig videos, just for good measure:

Goddamn, that’s adorable.

(Fun story: I once saw Julie Klausner live and she talked about how she meant to send a TV show some important document but sent the above video instead. She said she was embarrassed, but if I were a television executive, I would probably give her work based just on the amazing video alone.)
