I am the Cheese Weasel

There never was a truer statement than:
"Weasel is a funny word. You can improve the humor value of almost any situation by injecting a weasel into it." -- Dave Barry

This is born out by so many things. Futurama for example. Who wouldn't love a spice weasel. What about an ice weasel?

Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come. -- Matt Groening

or how about

Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines. -- John Benfield

it would appear that the weasel is a truely great animal

Weaseling out of things is important to learn. It's what separates us from the animals ... except the weasel.Matt Groening

Then there is this classic by Hunter S. Thompson.

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether. -- Hunter S. Thompson

With HST you never know, did he think that there were really weasels closing in or was it a metaphore for the what J.R "Bob" Dobbs would call pinks. As you can probably tell I'm in a weird mood and my humor is veering into the juvenile. Oh Well. Goodnight all.

Sadly, there is a dearth of good weasel material in the fortune file. I will endeavor to improve and expand what is there. I'm thinking a haiku devoted to the cheese weasel. If I can come up with anything, I will post it later.

Still with the weasel?! Tried it on Riley and you were wrong...he didn't laugh. Looked at me with 5 year old contempt instead.

But you're pretty...
