Why guinea pig? Well, I meant experimental subject, really. Guinea pigs, like rats, rabbits, mice and many other creatures that we humans think are there for us to treat just as we like, used in medical and scientific research, and a whole raft of spurious and repetitive experiments besides, that humans could test perfectly well in their place, making me wonder if karmic consequences, including "As we sow, so shall we reap" will apply in due course.
But that's another discussion altogether; it's too early in the day for me to be frothing at the mouth about the cosmetics industry, and this blog specialises in drivel and trivia rather than well-thought-out argument on serious topics.
In this case, the Grand Mohnstrudel Experiment was benign - in intent, anyway - and I included myself in the subject group, so that's all right then. All we had to suffer for the sake of the experiment was a little weight gain. (And at my age, that's likely to be permanent weight gain. One has to suffer for one's art, perhaps.)
