Contrary to what you may have heard, the Dividend Pig is not the pot-bellied, sty-dwelling variety you may be thinking of. The pig here refers to guinea pigs, the small, furry, pet-store kinda pigs that South Americans love to eat.

Unlike their pork-bearing cousins (actually, they have no relation to farm pigs), guineas are slow, care-free, and not to bright. Imagine a small, furry cow, and that’s a guinea pig. They mostly graze on hay and carrots, then sleep, then repeat.
The reason I chose the guinea pig as my online persona is two-fold. First, there is one that sits in a cage right next to my computer, and he was there when I decided to write this blog. With no better ideas available or other pets nearby, the pig won.
Second, pigs are infamous for their ravenous appetites. But whereas they crave food, I crave dividends. Gimme Gimme Gimme
There. Now you can sleep at night.
