Human Head Cloned From Hedgehogs!


OK, no.  Not really.  But I just spotted this story on the Christian Science Monitor yesterday, belatedly.  The dude’s an Englishman by the name of Les Stocker, wildlife rehabilitator & photographer strawdinaire, and as you can see, he’s made ENTIRELY OF HEDGEHOGS.  Not really.  Well actually, yes he is.  Because otherwise it’d be like cuddling sea urchins, eh?  So he must be.

Its_good_ere_ent_it_1From the article text:

"Inside row upon row of rolled-up pastel towels, small, thorny creatures are snoozing. It’s mid-morning after all, and hedgehogs simply do not like to rise before dusk.            

"This isn’t a hedgehog spa, nor a fantastical Beatrix Potter tale. This is St. Tiggywinkles – a wildlife hospital. It’s where 500 hedgehogs are served meals in bed every day in the hope they’ll put on enough weight to survive the winter.

"It is also a place with a royal stink."

Reality-Casual Friday

Greets, Peeps.  Happy Friday!  Theo here, slapping up a quick mindbender in between Meg postingks.  It’s been a long week.  I’m all done with facing stark tedious reality head-on.  Ees now tyme for… ze SURREAL.

I picked these two little lovelies out of the submissions to "What’s Cuter?" …the morphing is my own dastardly design.  It was a bit eerie how well they fit together.

Pepp-ridge Fahhhm Remembehs!

Hey, Sir Quills-a-lot.

Hedgealarms are going off all over the place, Kayte R.!

Let’s check in on Numo the SuperHedge

Look People, when you go on a Hedgehog Binge (it happens—try H.A. if it gets really bad) then you have one place to go, and that is Loosetooth.com, the home of NUMO the Hedgehog.

Let’s check in and see how Numo, the most famous moist nosicle on the InterWebs, is doing in his exer-ball.


He is looking pretty good there, rolling around the room, teeny paws going at faster than Roomba speed…


He’s a pretty small Dewd, only the length of a toilet paper tube. Hmm—I see he is giving us a GLIMPSE OF HIS MOIST NOSICLE OMG YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!


Brandy A., you and Numo are redonk.

Moist nosicle and tube action

Reggie, the one-year-old Hedge is throwing a super moist nosicle and knowing glance your way. Like most Hedges, he’s hanging out in a tube-shaped item. What is it with Hedges and tubes!? Will some brilliant hedgehog owner please explain? Is it akin to the Cats-in-Boxes phenom!?


Tubular submishe, Julie F.!
