April 3rd Cheese Weasel Day
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.

Some people want some Bleu
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.

Crazy Cheese Eaters

The French have long been disparaged with the nickname, “Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys.” This epithet probably stems from a combination of their projected arrogance and their having to be bailed out in WW1, WW2, and VietNam.

Times being what they are, I can’t vouch for the current state of of the French’s eagerness to surrender in the face of opposition but it’s plain as day that they’re still some crazy cheese eaters.


Regardez Sur La Puissance Du Fromage

This hilarious television commercial that Ruairi Robinson directed for France’s Centre National Interprofessionnel de lEconomie Laitire (CNIEL) more than makes that point clear.

Mon dieux! Even the – Mutant? Prehistoric? – river monsters in the Seine are hooked on cheese to the point of excluding people from their diet? That’s some seriously crazy cheese eating! 😆
