Brawndo - The Thirst Mutilator

Tommy and I are extremely pleased to announce that Lizzie has gotten her first corporate sponsorship ever. Actually, come to think of it, has any hamster ever had a corporate sponsor before? Maybe Hampton of Hampster Dance fame would be the closest contestant, but pumped up on Brawndo - The Thirst Mutilator I'm sure Lizzie is more than a match for old Hampton, especially with all those electrolytes pumping through her veins. One sip of this stuff and she'll be charging off across America at light speed.

Of course, the improved running is just the beginning. Initial clinical tests revealed Brawndo can give incredible new abilities we never thought possible. Here are just a few of the results of our tests:

6x increase in upper body strength

Development of pop-star-quality pipes and a seductive voice to match

With such a dramatic increase in strength, intelligence and dexterity from drinking Brawndo on a twice-daily basis, our lab hamsters began taking on all kinds of new activities:

(Note: Brawndo is intended solely to be consumed by humans and plants. Like other processed human food and drink, we do not recommend or endorse actually feeding Brawndo to your pet hamsters)

Goodbye to the Grand Canyon!

After more than a month of trekking through the vast virtual desert wilderness, Lizzie finally made it out of the Grand Canyon! It was tough work fording the rivers and climbing over all those canyons and plateaus, but nothing is harder to stop than a hamster on a life-long mission. In between roughing it in the wild and fighting off hawks and coyotes with her bare paws, Lizzie was able to stop and help this poor, drunken tourist from falling to his doom. Frankly, I think he's enjoying himself way too much given the only things between him and a rocky end are 482 feet of air and a 3 ounce hamster.

"Stop laughing and waving or you'll become yet another example of Darwinism!"

Lizzie featured by Small Animal Channel

A couple weeks ago, Tommy and I gave an interview for Small Animal Channel about Lizzie. The article was just posted up today! Check out how we came up with the idea for Hamster Across America and our other plans for Lizzie here:

Lizzie wins 2nd at Petco Hamster Ball Derby

Hey everyone! This past Saturday was the annual hamster ball derby at Petco. Of course, we just had to go and have Lizzie compete for pride and glory. A small contingent of friends came out to cheer her on. No doubt roused by the strong show of support, Lizzie won the initial heat to qualify for the finals, but came in 2nd against a much younger fellow Syrian. Congrats Lizzie on your performance!
