Why I don’t panic buy

In German, hoarding is called “hamstering” and going out buying stuff in much larger quantities than what you need is called making a “Hamsterkauf”, literally buying “like a hamster” or “buying a hamster”.  I totally abhor this behaviour and will have none of it. I rather buy guinea pigs.

    1. They eat guinea pig in South America. Google gave me the number of 65 million guinea pigs eaten in Peru every year. Most westerners shrink back but are happily eating rabbits. Anyway, I eat neither hamsters nor rabbits.
