Even a Vegan
Can buy a wedge and eat them
They aren’t dairy

I would not suggest
That you bother to try this
Cotton tastes like poo

But you can love them
In all their cheese shaped glory
And plushy goodness.

Thanks to Rachel G. for submitting this amazing wedge super-haiku! Your 3 separate haiku stanzas totally blew our wedgeminds! But wait a minute. "They aren't dairy". 5 syllables? Debatable. Still, A+++. Keep 'em coming!

Public Notice RE; Novelty Haiku


If you must send junk mail, your friendly recipients at now require it to be sent in haiku format. You do remember what I haiku is, right? No?


Well, we did some research, and apparently, the format of a haiku depends on what language you would like to write it in. We’re going to keep it simple here and leave it at “poems consisting of 3 lines, the first containing 5 syllables, second line 7 syllables, and last line 5 syllables.


Nothing, absolutely nothing except that if you write and send me a haiku about anything related to my wedges, I will post it. If you send me junk mail, in haiku format, I will read it! No other haiku will be accepted!! Well, we're still accepting death threats -- but only in haiku format!!!

Here is my attempt at writing a haiku – Death threat styles:

Uttered under breath
Eyes staring as if to kill
Abruptly depart

Walter came up with one on the topic of junk mail:

Lottery winnings
Accost my inbox daily
Who are these people?

Wedgehogs...and in memory of Gwen

The Wedges family is always growing, and today, we happily introduce two new members, Gwen and Beck, the wedgehogs:

Wedgehogs have spiky backs and fuzzy tummies, but in Beck and Gwen's case, even their spikes are pretty soft. They tend to keep to themselves, but Miko and Mantari attempt to play with them whenever they can.

Gwen is an extra-special albino wedgehog, complete with laser eyes (eyes do not actually shoot lasers). Diversity is valued in Wedgeland!

On a special note, this post is in memory of another Gwen, the wedgehogs namesake. Sadly, the ever adventurous Gwen the albino hedgehog passed away this past night of April 17th, 2008. She was the mother of 2 sets of babies, 7 in total, and was much loved by her family.

This is not a goodbye to Gwen, as she will live on, preserved in Wedgeland, as the Wedgehog matriarch, and instigator of wedgehog adventures!

Watch for Beck and Gwen online and soon in the wedge shop!
Or email for more detail and ordering information.

Oh dear. Walter found out about Twitter. Twitter's like blogging for really impatient somewhat self-centered people (don't get huffy, it's totally true). Walter really gets caught up in these internet-phenomenon-of-the-day type of things. This is probably going to end up with more internet addiction counseling.

Until the intervention occurs, you can keep tabs on Walter in almost kind of real time at If you like, you can 'follow' Walter, and you'll be pestered whenever he does something in twitter-land. The internet is awesome!

Mitten + String = Disaster

This is Miko's namesake...

We went away on a 2 day trip....
and then disaster happened....

NOoOOOOooO...Miko, you're not supposed to eat string!

Then you have to sit on cold tables,
endure evil thermometers...

and then you get a giant cut in your belly!
Weeks of Medication!!! MEDICATION!!!

Don't eat string! String is for wedges, not cats!

***A large portion of all wedge sales will be necessarily donated to Miko's vet fund!
