Cuy Bono?

This little guy, whom you or I might call a guinea pig, is known as a "cuy" in Peru. No, it's not because of the little cuy-cuy squeaking noise he makes, it comes from the Quechua word "quwi" (though I suppose that name could be based on the little quwi-quwi squwiking noise.

You probably know that guinea pigs make very popular pets.

You may even know that they are a very popular food source in the Andes.

But did you know that they were also the main dish at The Last Supper?

No, I didn't think so.

Don't say this blog isn't educational.

No offence, but when it comes to religion, I can't do better than this quote:

"Religion is sugar-coating a turd and trying to sell it as a donut"
