The Cheese Weasel Day  story  started in Silicon Valley in the early 90′s. A couple out for a day in the park on April 3rd noticed a weasel carrying a piece of wrapped cheese and wondered what was going on. They decided they must have had a rare sighting of the Cheese Weasel. Their story eventually morphed into the urban myth of the Cheese Weasel who brings cheese to the good little tech industry workers, leaving a piece of cheese under their mouse pads on April 3rd.

Could this be the cheese weasel?

Since that time, the celebration of the Cheese Weasel has grown and become an Internet holiday tradition that celebrates the contributions of workers in the tech industry. Tech workers get a lot of grief from people and are often under-appreciated. Cheese Weasel Day is a fun way to say thank you to them.

Over the years people have made art, music, prose and poetry to support and celebrate the myth of the Cheese Weasel. It’s all for fun and just to be nice to people who do a lot of good things for us. I like to think of CWD as the milk of human kindness, curdled. As we all know, kindness is a fondue-mental human need.

So, what’s your contribution to the Cheese Weasel Day fun going to be in 2014?

Molly Carocci is the undisputed poet laureate of  Cheese Weasel Day.

The Cheese-loving Shepherd to His Love

Eat cheese with me and be my Love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That dills and Wensleydales and Tetillas, Or Edams or Havarti yields.

And we will sit upon a sweater,
And see the shepherds eat some Cheddar
By shallow rivers, at whose falls
Melodious birds eat Emmentals.

Cheese Weasel Day on the awesome Techcrunch blog!

“Unknown to most, April 3rd is Cheese Weasel Day, the holiday where the Cheese Weasel brings dairy goodness to all the good boys and girls in the tech industry. While the origins are murky, it seems to have started around 1992 when a weasel was spotted carrying a Kraft Single. This, they assumed, must be the Cheese Weasel, and therefore, that it must be Cheese Weasel Day. What was the weasel going to do with the cheese? He must be off to put it under the keyboards of good tech workers everywhere and that’s just what we expect you to do today! Huzzah!” Read more on Techcrunch

KOSU commentary this morning about celebrating the unsung TECHIES in our lives with Cheese Weasel Day…

Here is a message for all the techies listening today. Stop asking why you don’t get more respect and start recognizing your influence. You’re quick and clever. You don’t like under-handed co-workers and back-room deals. This makes you a great candidate for leadership. You have great ideas, but you’re not a sovereign nation. So, give yourself permission to build relationships and mingle.

Some time in the early ‘90s, a couple of techies in Silicon Valley were hanging out at a park when they caught a glimpse of a weasel scurrying by with a slice of wrapped American cheese. They knew in an instant it must be the Cheese Weasel delivering a piece of cheese to some good little techie. After all, someone must be showing all the good techie boys and girls some appreciation.

Musicians Wanted to Remake the CWD Song

Monday, February 4th, 2013

We need your creativity! Are you a musician waiting for your big break? Here it is, do your own version of our Cheese Weasel Day song!

So far we have the original song, a rap version, a Blues version.. and now a version in a style similar to James Taylor. Listen to the other songs here.

This version by John Brimacombe adds some new verses to the classic song by Kathryn Tewson

Cheese Weasel Song (New Arrangement)

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

He’s got a cute black tail
And tiny buck teeth
He doesn’t bring fish, and he
Doesn’t bring beef
So you’d better be good if you wanna get some cheese
From the Cheese Weasel.

 

Who placed that cheese under your mouse?
It was the Cheese Weasel
He’s not just a PC or a MAC, he’s got everybody’s back.
He’s the Cheese Weasel

He’s got a cute black tail
And tiny buck teeth
He doesn’t bring fish, and he
Doesn’t bring beef
So you’d better be good if you wanna get some cheese
From the Cheese Weasel.

Remember April 3rd and be just like
The Cheese Weasel
Say thank you to your technical support 
Be the Cheese Weasel

He’s got a cute black tail
And tiny buck teeth
He doesn’t bring fish, and he
Doesn’t bring beef
So you’d better be good if you wanna get some cheese
From the Cheese Weasel.
