In the Andes mountains up in Peru the Indians keep little guinea pigs called "cuyes" that are served up on special occasions.
I was served one of them at a family's BBQ celebration in Arequipa, Peru once. I didn't like it all. Nothing but skin and bones, like a quail or something.
A little kid told his father he had seen a guinea pig in science lab at school.
"Why are they called Guinea Pigs, dad", he asked.
They're not from Guinea, and they are not pigs, either".
"Oh, I can explain that, son, it's easy. It's because they are used in Laboratory experiments!", said his father. ( I read that one in a Mensa magazine).
