Happy Cheese Weasel Day

Cheese Weasel Day (CWD) is the only Internet holiday. Started around 1993, CWD is celebrated each April 3rd as a fun day dedicated to appreciating people who work in the tech industry.

Sweet Dreams Are Made Of Cheese

Legend has it the Cheese Weasel travels the world, leaving a bit of cheese under keyboards or mouse pads of good techie boys and girls. The type really doesn’t matter though Kraft Singles often is the cheese of choice. However, depending on how often you look under your keyboard, the C.W. might place a wedge of cheddar instead. And if you’re lucky–some cheesecake might appear near your computer!

"The Cheese Weasel is a clever and cunning rodent, bent on quiet world domination.
Behold The Cheese Weasel

Who brings the cheese on April 3rd? The Cheese Weasel! He’s not a silly bunny or a raindeer or a bird, he’s the Cheese Weasel and he’s flying the world on his woodpecker, delivering cheese to all the techies out there.

How to Become Gluten Intolerant

What’s most interesting is that certain forms of Liberal and Progressive intolerance seem to be exacerbated or engendered by their level of privilege. In other words, the more well off a Liberal or Progressive is, the more likely they’re going to develop certain forms of faddish intolerance.

Fortunately for these sorts of Liberals and Progressives, JP Sears has thoughtfully provided an instructional video on just how to correctly and properly become intolerant of gluten, the latest craze in intolerance.

NOTE: For those few of you who really and truly suffer from celiac disease or NCGS, this isn’t for- or about you and your pain. This is for- and about those sorts who decided in a Munchausenian fashion to claim some variety of your illness.
