genie pigs


We are in need of rehoming 2 female genie pigs. They are roughfly 2 years old. Of you are interested please let me know. They need to stay together

That’s gotta be a one-off mistake, right? Or maybe this person thinks that the genie pigs are the reincarnation of the Wonder Twins, and they need to stay together so that they can transform into the form of a sno-cone and … well, a guinea pig … and save the universe. Roughfly.

Black genie pig

Free genie pig

Oh. Never mind.

Actually, it’s a little known fact that genie pigs can provide you with three wishes, but they all must involve bacon somehow.

Thanks, Erin, Rebecca, and Justin!

    “Oh Master, I seem to have turned us both into genie pigs!”

    “It’s worse than that, Jeannie, you turned me into a female genie pig!”

    “Oh no, Master! I shall call Capt. Healy and see if he has enough drachmas to go to Baghdad and enlist the aid of my uncles to turn us back into our normal selves!”

    “You mean your Uncles Vasmir and Azmir? Yeah, that’s all I need. They’ll probably turn you back and me into a toad or something.”

    *play goofy soundtrack and bumper music*

    “Hey Jeannie and Tony! Awww…aren’t you two cute!”

    *Roger reaches into Tony’s cage and gets bitten*

    “Ow!”

    “Knock it off Roger…did you bring back the Uncles?”

    “Better, Tony, much better!”

    *Roger waves a small bottle full of a glowing elixir*

    “What is that Capt. Healy?”

    “It’s a potion your Uncle Azmir gave me. He said it will put everything to right.”

    *Roger puts the bottle up to the cage and Jeannie takes a sip*

    *POOF! She transforms back into her human self*

    “Oh, thank you, Capt. Healy, thank you!”

    *Jeannie puts the bottle up to the cage Tony is in and he takes a sip..nothing happens*

    “Here, Master, take another sip.”

    “Alright, Jeannie, but that stuff tastes awful.”

    *Tony takes another sip…and……*

    *POOF!WHIZ!BANG!SMOKE FILLS THE ROOM!”

    For the life of me, I can’t figure out how it’s actually spelled off the top of my head. It’s just not a word that’s used very often. Genie? Ginie? Guine? Sanguine? Guinea?

        Yes, the last one looks right but I prefer the more exotic-sounding “sanguine”.

          It can mean “optimistic” (I am sanguine about the interview.) or “bloody”. (That shade of red looks very sanguine.)

          Latin is sanguis “(and sanguen , n.) [blood]. Transf. [blood-relationship, race, family, progeny; life-blood, strength, vigor].”

          In Spanish it is la sangre, and the color gives the name of the flavored wine drink, sangria.

          In french, le sang (except the Fanks do not add citrus and brandy to their vin ordinare).

          The use in English, as SJ points out, to mean confident seems to come from the concept of the nobility of various humours, and a supposed releationship to one’s breeding.

          I’m not quite up to looking up the entry in the OEM to confirm that, though. I find my humours being melancholy today.

          Going way back up there, I think it would be creepier to dress up a pet than a future meal. The future meal’s suffering ends at dinner time, the pet gets to be squeezed into different outfits over and over and over again. I’d rather be barbecued than Barbie-ed.

    Pickles looked at the incoming human with disdain.
    “Oh jeez, here comes another one,” he said.
    Winston gave a small, knowing smirk. He knew what was about to happen; it always happened, and for some reason, it always happened to Pickles.
    “Wipe the smirk off, Winston,” Pickles retorted to the silent schadenfreude.
    Winston feigned emotional injury. “I would never!
    “Crap!” Pickles exclaimed as the human — .a disheveled, malodorous fellow with toxic breath and more fur than they had, grabbed him roughly. Pickles squirmed and squeaked in protest as the human picked him up, picking up the volume as the human did what humans always did with their kind. It was almost painful to watch for Winston — almost moreso than the amusement he derived from watching.
    The human made irritated noises, clearly becoming agitated while Pickles squawked ever louder before being dumped unceremoniously back into the cage with a fed-up grunt from the human and the wind knocked out of Pickles’ sails.
    Pickles stared daggers alternately at Winston and the departing human, his fur a wild, untamed mess. “Why? Why, Winston? Why do they always have to rub? And so damned vigorously! I’ve got rug burn all over my back and I swear I’m going bald there.”
    “They don’t understand,” Winston replied matter-of-factly. “They hear about Genie Pigs and assume we’re like those bloody lamps from the stories.”
    “Yeah, but they still asked the genie for wishes in those stories!” Pickles pleaded.
    “Only after they rubbed the lamp to make the genie appear,” Winston responded.
    “Don’t they get that we are the genies and all they have to do is ask?” Pickles whined. “What are the expecting to happen, the ‘real’ genie is going to spew forth from of my ass?”
    Winston chuckled. “It wouldn’t surprise me one bit, Pickles, not one bit. Humans are thick and greedy creatures.”
    Pickles gave a disgusted look. “I’ll give ’em something from my ass…”
    “Look on the bright side,” said Winston. “None of them have figured it out yet. We have yet to have to grant anyone a single wish because they’re too stupid and ignorant to just ask nicely.”
    Pickles glanced dubiously at Winston. “I guess. But that doesn’t help my increasing need for Rogaine, does it?”
    Winston shrugged. “What can you do? We’re in this cage and they are out there.”
    “Is that supposed to make me feel better?” Pickles asked.
    Winston shook his head. “It’s just the way it is. You get used to it because you must.”
    Pickles snorted derisively, then noticed something out of the corner of his eye. “Oh, no. No, please. Not another one.”
    Winston saw him, too. Another unsavory sort with an alarmingly bulbous nest of fur on its head. As it came closer he smelled sewage. It was most unpleasant. Winston was starting to feel genuinely sorry for Pickles.
    The familiar routine started all over again; the cage door opened, the human grabbed, rubbed, muttered angrily, rubbed more and more vigorously to the sounds of furious and irritated squeals, and then finally grunted in disgust as it dumped its uncooperative genie back in the cage.
    Pickles stared wide-eyed for several moments.
    “Shut up,” said Winston through a clenched jaw, his fur wild and still flying about the cage.
    Pickles started to open his mouth until Winston interrupted him with a smartly raised paw. “SHUT. UP. I don’t want to hear it. Not one word. Just shut up.”
    Pickles gave a small, knowing smirk.

    genie pigs

    ——————————————————————————–
    We are in need of rehoming 2 female genie pigs (Who are pregnant and about to have 25 babies each). They are roughfly 2 years old (So they will be a little tough to chew). If you are interested please let me know(So I can tell you more lies about how they don’t bite). They need to stay together (One just isn’t enough for a meal)

    They need to stay together

    No they don’t. There will be no guinness tears shed by either one of these guinness pigs should the other one mysteriously disappear. Sparky lies.

    Now, if they were hamsters, I could see the need for them to not be separated. They must be kept together to do the next Kia Soul commercial.

        I knew there was something evil about them. The fact that they’re in separate cages suggested to me they can’t be too bonded. My evil offspring has two rats and she keeps them together. Before they co-habitated, they didn’t pay the other one much mind. But now they can’t sleep apart from each other.

          My brother-in-law had 2 male guineas and we looked after them one weekend for him (because he used to look after the rats when we went away). We put the cage in the dining room near the rat cage (but not too near). All our rats at the time were girls. The girls spent the entire weekend at the end of the cage nearest the guineas – I don’t think they cared that they were the wrong species. The guineas spent the entire weekend a) hiding and b) making squawking noises to one another. Cute, but not that friendly.

    Since it’s story time today, I’ll stream my TypoMagic for you, and I won’t go back and make corrections as I see them:

    Baldwell had lived up to the name of his family all his life. Not a speck of hair had ever grown on his luminous and glowing dome, and no hair ever would. While lesser men might be concerned with this, Baldwell cherished it, loved it.

    However, the life of a man who balded well was not always easy. It required huge amounts of buffing compound to keep the shine as brilliant as possible, and there were times when his normally collosal supply waned to the point where he had a meer two or three bottles. Delivery of a pallet of buffing compound, in this case EZ Floor Shine with lemon, could take weeks and Baldwell was far too frugal to buy individual bottles. Were he a better planner, he’d order the next pallet when he was down to a case, rather than a few bottles, of the polish.

    No, Baldwell needed a better solution. Fast delivery of buffing compound could solve all his problems, and then the world would see how bright he could really shine!

    So it was a normal day, much like today but different in that it isn’t today but some other day prior, when Baldwell was idly scrolling through a few Craigslist ads. There was a banjo made out of a turtle shell, a walrus grooming kit with tusk lubricant, a spatula that had melted into the shape of washington crossing the deleware (though to be honest it looked more like Herbert Hoover than washington), and a pair of magical, wish granting vermin.

    Now, Baldwell generally didn’t like rodents. They were covered in hair and therefore his antithesis, much like a walmart cashier is direct newtonian opposition of a train stewardess dressed in drag. Yes, he hated rodents as a kind of loved arch nemesis.

    Wish granting, however, changed his demenor entirely on these particular gerbils… or whatever they were. He had to have them, with but a wish he could have all the buffer he’d ever need. Baldwell excitedly coated another rag in EZ polish and wiped his scalp down. He could almost see a cupboard filled to the brim with his treasure.

    A phone call and an anxious wait later he had the pigs, though much smaller than most barnyard animals he had ever seen.

    Wishing on them was a problem. He couldn’t seem to make it work. At first he simply wished at them, but failing that he tried to strike up a conversation and smoothly transistion into his need of buffing oil. Sadly the pigs weren’t very good conversationalists and it was hard to get any momentum towards Baldwell’s desires.

    Frustrated, Baldwell reached into the cage and extracted the bigger of the two. It was obviously the Alpha of the pack, so would be more likely to control the wish granting hootenany. He lifted the primal being above his head and screamed in a commanding voice, “Give me floor wax!”

    The pig slipped from his grasp, and with a plorp, landed spralled on his head. A look in the entryway mirror, a mirror long used to test the reflective properties of an emaculately polished forehead, showed a strange but intreaguing site to Baldwell. For a man who’s never had hair, the sudden realization that your genie makes a rather striking toupe can drive him over the edge. Something awoke that day in Baldwell.

    And that, dear children, is how the Toupe Genie came to be the greatest defender our city has ever known.

          Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale;
          A tale of a bacon strip
          That started in a frying pan
          and was there for da ladies to sip.

          His pal was a salty Ham in Can,
          Spiral cut and honey cured.
          Five cases of full sail were bought that day
          For a three day bender, a three day bender.

          The party started getting rough,
          The tiny strip was blitzed,
          If not for some Pepto and a Tums or two
          The bacon would have tossed, the bacon would have tossed.

          The strip flopped around on the floor of this stinkin’ dirty bar
          With Mudsy
          HamCan too,
          Stephanae and her fluff,
          Meej the peep
          CapnMac and Kelli Ann,
          Here in Bacontini’s bar.

          So this is the tale of our drunken haze,
          We’ve enough beer for a long, long time,
          We’ll have to make some cocktails too,
          I can’t think of a rhyme.

          HamCan and the Stripper too,
          Will do their very best,
          To make the others uncomfortable,
          By baring all four breasts.

          No porn, no doors no genie pigs,
          Nothing snarkworthy,
          That is the nightmare,
          We’ll try to cure for you.

          So join us here each week my friends,
          You’re sure to need a shot,
          With these two processed pork products,

          synopsys of episode #7

          Hammy uncovers the previously unknown basement and discovers a psycho doll locked in a closet.
          Hammy lets her out thinking Bacontini accidently left her in there after a late night fetish.
          Psycho Doll conjures up Haunted Hawk and together they wreak havoc within the bar.
          The Genie Pigs are able to subdue and eliminate Haunted Hawk, but their combined wonder powers are no match for Psycho Doll and they are locked in a jar of #2 gerberts.
          As Psycho Doll is about to skewer Hammy and Bacontini, she reaches for her monster energy drink and instead, inadvertently drinks from a can of coors light left on the bar.
          The silver bullet saves the day (and releases the Genie Pigs).

          Tagline and lead-in for episode #8:

      Thanks for the concern, all. I fell last night, and immediately called my sister the EMT. She asked the standard questions, and determined that I was probably fine, and said to go see a doctor if I started feeling dizzy or having vision problems.

    Anyone else notice that the pictures not only look like the genie pigs are in cages, but that the photographer also appears to have been in a cage? I wonder if this ad was posted by another genie pig in this household who is trying to get rid of the competition, so is trying to sell his roommates on CL? That would also explain the quality of the photos.
