Christmas Hedgehogs was the little-known sequel to Year Without a Santa Claus. In it, the main character, Spiny, has to convince Santa that boys and girls around the world believe in him. He does this by stealing all of the periods from all of the sentences. Not surprisingly, this doesn’t work, as now Santa can’t understand a damned thing anyone is saying. Heat Miser and Cold Miser make a guest appearance, singing their showstopping number, “I Have to Get Rid of Most of My Kids, Before I Leave.” Santa realizes that hedgehogs are the true spirit of Christmas, and decides to retire and make Spiny into the new symbol of Christmas.

You can blame/thank sarajean80 for this one. Now get off the computer and go spend time with your family.

    I’m all snarkless today, because it’s Christmas Eve and baby hedgehogs are incredibly cute creatures.

    (If you don’t already know that, do a quick image search.)

    Also, here’s a three-part poem I wrote a while back, with some hedgehogs in it.

      Awwww, the poor little babies with their teeny-weeny legs in casts. It made me want to take them all home! But the original post cause no such motherly instincts in me. Do hedgehogs really cost $100-$250?? As I only adopt pets from shelters maybe I don’t have a reliable yardstick to measure pet prices.

        I’d like one that’s purple with red tips. That would be both cute and bad-ass.

        My sister had an albino one, it was adorable. She got rid of it though; it had babies and then ate them, which made her somehow a little less cute to my sister.

          Yeah, most rodents you have to watch out for that. Most of the time it’s best to rear the babies of rodentia yourself or keep the mother extremely well fed. It’s even worse for the ones that were raised by people because their instincts get all screwed up.

      I wasn’t even going to go there. Either “hedgehogs” is an innuendo for her actual children, or we are looking at crazy cat lady syndrome here.

      In either case, selling her children to others so she can afford to take a trip is just… I mean… no.

      Most likely though this is a thinly veiled ploy designed to convince people not to report her for selling animals with a pethetic sob story.

      Then again even if it was true I still report her. Because I’m a mean little piece of work.

      Kelli, some very odd states have laws against owning anything cute. For instance, Californians cannot own Quaker parakeets, ferrets, or hedgehogs legally.

      As a side note, I wish you could all smell my hands right now. I just finished the white wine, thyme, rosemary, garlic, oj, and black pepper marinade for the leg of lamb. It’s FAB-ulous!

          Can’t purchase a ferret in NYC. I have seen them at the vets’ there, though, so apparently if you bring one in from elsewhere, they don’t do anything. I don’t know why. Maybe they just hate on cute rodents.

      BassBone, what’s “bad” is the reference to the hedgehogs as the poster’s kids, while at the same time trying to sell them off. Then there’s the punctuation missing, the lack of capitals, the speeling, etc. These are a few of our favorite things!

    Now that I look at it again, I notice this:

    “i paid 250 each plus shiping for the adults” (emphasis added)

    Assuming that’s supposed to say “shipping,” who sent hedgehogs through the mail???

    There is clearly something I’m not understanding here.

      Dogs, cats, birds, and I would think other animals, are often shipped via airline or USPS. There are regulations, but it can be done. Usually, the weather plays a huge factor in the possibility of sending the animals. Even fertile eggs can be shipped.

      Wow, coming back to this a year later is pretty cool, as I can now corey up my own question!

      [flying pets corey] Some friends of mine adopted kittens from a brother halfway across the country. They were dropped off at the airport by the brother in a cat carrier and met at the airport here by my friend. She had to be there when the plane landed so that they wouldn’t just be sitting around in baggage claim or where ever. [/corey]

    When I was little, my dad and I made up a series of stories about a hedgehog family. Then one day I found a real hedgie outside our apartment building. I guess some idiot tried keeping it as a pet and got tired of it… :-/ I picked her up with an oven mitt, took her inside and fed her a bowl of milk. She lapped it up and proceeded to explore the table on which we set her to eat. She didn’t seem really scared, just kind of curious. There is a hilly/foresty area near our city and we took her there and let her go. But I don’t know what kind of person would take home a live animal and just let it go in the middle of a city. I think the poster was really irresponsible–she should have taken the baby hedgies to a shelter.

      Christmas hedgehog’s tasty hedgehogs
      Dressed in hollandaise sauce
      In the oven

      Children lunching
      People crunching
      Spitting spine after spine
      And in every corner pet shop you’ll see
