Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

FoTW Back in 2004, we ran a revealing piece on the new, improved dining experience which is the "Peruvian Breed" guinea pig.

And absolutely delicious it is too, as our Peruvian cuisine correspondent confirms. Mind you, not everyone with a Peruvian guinea pig is fattening the little blighter up for the pot. It's taken her a while, but Danielle now writes:

I searched "Peruvian guinea pig" on google, hoping to find pictures of the beautiful animal and came across this disgusting garbage. I have an adorable Peruvian guinea pig as a pet and this article made me sick. How could anyone eat such an adorable creature? You should be ashamed of yourself. Heartless, soulless bastard.

Well, it appears the Peruvians have no problem at all with the concept, munching their way through a mouth-watering 65m guinea pigs a year. Apparently they taste like rabbit, which are also adorable creatures, especially in a casserole with mixed veg. ®

Culinary update

Thanks to all those readers who wrote to confirm that Peruvian guinea pig does indeed taste like rabbit and is truly delicious. A special ta very much to the anonymous gourmet who sent the following picture of one "before the gravy & ketchup went on"...
