"G-Force" movie leading to spike in guinea pig sales?

Guinea pigs are flying off the shelves these days as children and mentally handicapped adults send "G-Force" to the top of the box office. There aren't any firm statistics at this point, but the demand for Cavia porcellus is through the roof.

I don't necessarily see this as a good thing though. I can only imagine how many guinea pigs will be placed in garbage disposals all around America once kids realize that their new pet can't speak English or breakdance.

No word yet on how the film is affecting sales of guinea pig in Peru. Perhaps it might change the way they treat guinea pigs, but with their succulent flavors, that's like a movie about sentient baby back ribs discouraging barbecues in America.
