Grand Valley State University has reached a $40,000 settlement with a student who sued to keep a guinea pig in a campus apartment for emotional support.

The guinea pig could pledge Phi Sig and join a recovering police dog and a hedgehog, but the two would have to come to the Midwest.

They wear the cutest little orange vests.

they are RODENTIA......

Q --
Ever seen the interior of a frat house? It would blend in very well.

The rodents that have been identified as innoculated against rabies are painted to reduce panic.

See, they used a guinea pig because it was a test case. That's science.

Who says there are too many frivilous lawsuits ? Who can acutally spell frivalous ?

Average life expectancy of a guinea pig is about two years. Expect the next lawsuit any day now!

Those who think we are over-coddling our children, please raise their hands. (Not the kid's hands, your own.)

Thank you.

More support rodents.

And a vaguely related service animal story:

Tom spends a lot of money at his local pet store on a talking centipede which comes in a little box.

Excited about his new pet, Tom asks the centipede if he’d like to go to the bar for a drink.

There is no answer from his new pet. Tom begins to wonder if his talking centipede can actually talk.

Impatiently, he puts his face up close to the box and shouts, “Hey you in there! Would you like to go out for a drink with me?”

A little voice comes from the box: “I heard you the first time! I’m putting on my friggin' shoes.”
