CooksDen spared no expense in putting together this rigorous experiment in which a hamster (Hammy, truly adorable for a rodent) is placed in a confined space, where he faces an ecological Sophie’s Choice between conventional and organically grown foods. (Choose the organics or watch the Earth die!) For the record, Hammy picked organics more than 60 percent of the time. Then again, he licked himself or ran away almost an equal number of times. Make sure to click on the jump to see the outtakes.
