And the best part? All made in China. I know - I received one of these noxious critters (stuck watching a hamster in a gi spin plastic 'chucks and vibrate to "Kung Fu Fighting") as a joke gift.

You think that's sick? Check out the Torrington Gopher Museum. It's quite a unique display of deceased gophers.

People will do anything for a buck.

Or, how about Hamsters in Politics?
The site is down, but fortunately, its sister site, is active. Somebody has WAY too much time on his hamsters.

I. Must. Have. Cpt. Carl.

Hey, these things are hilarious. We already have the kung fu one-and also a boxing one that has Theme from Rocky. There's also one that lifts weights...

And the best part is they generally last longer than real hamsters.

I'll only buy if they start making a George W. Chickenhawk doll.
