We interrupt your regularly scheduled Saturday to bring you a truckload of adorably named guinea pigs. In one of modern science’s greatest feats of technology, someone programmed an AI machine to create names as cute as the guinea pigs themselves.

However, the good names didn’t come without the bad. Butty Brlomy, Boooy, and Bho8otteeddeeceu were some early iterations that weren’t used, for obvious reasons.

That's pretty cute.  My dog's name is Boone, which might be considered odd for an Egyptian dog. My sister found him under her husband's car when he was six weeks old, barking the bad things away.  He wasn't too interested in making friends, but he did want the food and water she put out.   Mom never came back, so my sister took him in and decided he needed a name.   She was looking up Egyptian names on a website, and came across "Boone", with the meaning "I'm strong and can take care of myself, but feed me anyway".   She thought it fit him perfectly.   
“Neither a man nor a crowd nor a nation can be trusted to act humanely or to think sanely under the influence of a great fear.”

Cats are wonderful and I miss the ones that have been in my life.  I only cat-sit now for some gay/single friends when they go on vacation and the cats are fat and unappreciative.  But cats are like that.
