“My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy your ice cream while it's on your plate - that's my philosophy” - Thornton Wilder

Thanks to the generosity of Mr. Heb I am currently content...and filled to the brim with Whole Foods' Backwards Cookies and Cream gelato. Consequently I feel a little like Mrs. Tiggywinkle here...if only it was as easy to roll me home...

Actually, I feel a little ashamed of myself for making light of this poor hedgehog's weight problem. Hedgehogs, much like the rest of us, will eagerly eat foods that are high in fat and sugar and are actually prone to obesity (one in the eye for all those who suggest that if humans foraged for food like their animal counterparts...and went back to the whole hunting and gathering way of life...we'd never need to diet again). If a hedgehog will forage for a McFlurry (McDonalds had to change their containers in 2006 to be more "hedgehog friendly" as so many of the little guys were getting their heads stuck inside when they tried to lick the final remains from the bottom of the cup) you'd better believe that mankind would do the same.

    Poor little hedgehog! But they are adorable, aren't they?

    Obese hedgehogs are lucky because they're still adorable.
