Cutest War Ever

Not to make light of the Chaco War in which 100,000 people died, which is, of course, really bad. But this blurb struck me as oddly adorable:

Also, Paraguayans were able to send trained native guinea pigs carrying messages as a sort of messenger pigeon back and forth between lines of military operation, thus helping the war effort.

Hilarious. I was plowing through the rss (thursday is economist 100+ article dump) when I saw the headline and then the link to Chaco War and thought, "how funny...I was just talking about that today." Then I noticed the blog it was on. I, kind sir, am an idiot.

I still maintain that the Malvinas armed conflict is the most ridiculous.
