A Talented Family

You’re in for a treat today—it’s story time with Wezel. Plus you get to meet a couple members of the Wezel family. You may have seen those awesome beard videos floating around our Facebook page. If you haven’t – well let’s just say we both know what you’ll be doing after this. Trust me, after this little storytelling session, you won’t be able to resist watching. In fact, my bet is you’ll probably watch them a couple times.

Beard Video

There’s actually some pretty juicy background to these little gems. You may be wondering where we found such riveting lyrics. Believe it or not, those lyrics can be found on Twitter. That’s right, we’re singing real live authentic tweets. I doubt many people can claim that one.

Kyle (I’ve told you about him before—the one with the king of all beards) is the kind of guy everyone loves to have hanging around the office. Anyone who listens to Kyle for more than five minutes will agree that his spontaneous outbursts are far too valuable not to be documented. Thus a Twitter account solely dedicated to Kyle’s musings was born. Scott (not featured in the video but another very valuable member of the family) began tweeting every hilarious, ridiculous, inspiring word spout Kyle produced. Genius right? The collection today is quite impressive. The lyrics merely represent a few of our personal favorites.

Kyle may have a way with words, but Shaun is the musically gifted one in the family (he’s the one singing and playing the piano like a boss). Here’s a bit of gossip for you—Shaun was on American Idol with David Archuleta. That’s right—we’ve got a little celebrity in the family. Shaun came up with all those catchy tunes in the videos on the spot. We gave him a tweet, and seconds later he had a jingle that left our feet tapping. Talk about talent. And with Tanner over there on backup—we’re thinking a boy band might be our next big break.

So there you have it. Quite a talented family, wouldn’t you agree? We’ll keep rolling out the videos on our Facebook page every Saturday morning, so don’t miss out on Kyle’s words of wisdom.




Wezel Lowdown

We’ll keep things simple today—I would merely like to educate you by presenting ten fun facts you probably didn’t know about me and my fellow weasels.

Get ready for The Wezel Lowdown:

1. I like to match my outfits with the season—in the summer I don a brownish coat but in the winter I prefer all white. If I’m feeling especially fancy, I can do a bright lavender color under ultraviolet light.

2. My favorite foods are rabbits, ground squirrels, pika, birds, frogs, and rats.

3. Don’t get on my bad side—if I bite you, you’re in trouble and better start making friends with some monkeys, as they are the only ones who secrete the antidote that you must take within 24 hours.

4. I am a vision of manliness—I can feed on animals five times my size.

5. I have a diversified skill set, as I can both swim and climb.

6. Sleep is for the weak—I’m going all day and all night.

7. My claim to fame: I am the smallest carnivorous mammal in the world. You can pack a lot of punch into 6 inches, which is yet another reason to stay on my good side.

8. My excellent figure is good for more than just attracting the ladies—the long slender physique is perfect for maneuvering small spaces. Those mice think they’re so smart until I follow them straight into their burrow.

9. I love to eat (as in I eat around a third of my body weight everyday).

10. Warning: If I like you, I’ll make a low trilling sound. If I don’t like you, I’ll make a loud chirping sound. Just keep that in mind.

Winning with Wezel

So I feel like it’s been a lot of Wezel this and Wezel that lately. Then again, this is my blog. Even so, today I will graciously share some Wezel secrets that will specifically benefit YOU.

My goal is to aid you in your quest to conquer one of the most important months of the entire year—March. Of course, March is great thanks to the sun finally shining, the little green men running around, and the excuse to eat unreasonable amounts of pie in the name of mathematics for one whole day, but let’s be real—when it comes down to it, the only truly important thing about this month is the basketball.

Fun Fact: Wezel is a March Madness Maniac. Which is exactly why I am making it my first and foremost priority for the next few weeks to be here for you and you alone—on my watch, you will not miss a single game. I repeat, regardless of what you are doing, not one second of March Madness will be missed. You will have multitasking down to a fine science.

Still not convinced? Well take a break from perfecting those brackets (mine is already complete, and I guarantee I will crush you), and check out the hard proof below:

My leather is the finest

Hey guys! Wezel here. Don’t want to brag but I’m pretty much the best quality Wezel you’ll find on this side of Lake Chaubunagungamaug. I’m made of Top Grain leather, which I inherited from my Uncle Saben. People love me because I’m not totally grainless but still have some of that durable grain. That makes me pretty appealing, even to the honeys. Other leathers that are cheaper and lesser quality are like the squirrels of the leather world. They pretend they’re not a rodent- looking all cute and fluffy- but under their disguise of fluff and adorable spastic movements, they are really just rats with a good PR agent. That is what Genuine and Bonded leather is like. Typically spray-painted to look like full or top grain leather. Imposters- I’ll have nothing of it. Let’s just say my skin is durable. I won’t crack or tear like Genuine or Bonded leather- just like my nemesis the squirrel. Cheers, Wezel   WezelWallets1

The story of my birth.

It’s Wezel here. Today is a very special day — you get to hear the story of my birth. Since we’re still getting to know each other, I figured the beginning is a good place to start. So here’s the thing — I was sort of a surprise. But I’m getting ahead of myself. I am a product of an obsession — a leather obsession to be exact. Kyle — he’s the one sporting the king of all beards — loved to collect and mess around with leather strips. I am also a product of functionality. Kyle hated carrying around so much “stuff” in his wallet — what is all that for anyway? Kyle, being the bearded genius that he is, combined the obsession and the pet peeve for the greater good. He created a leather wallet designed just for cards: slim, sleek and manly. Here comes the surprise part. Kyle was simply playing around with his handmade wallet when he shoved two cards together and realized they made the perfect easel for a mobile phone. And thus I was born — the combination of a wallet and an easel — the Wezel. The rest is history. I had my first growth spurt thanks to an awesome Kickstarter fund (be sure to watch the video below). After a patent, lots of social media, and an Awful Waffle launch party, I was growing like a weed. And of course, all of you keep me going today. I may have been a surprise, but it was a pretty wonderful surprise, if I do say so myself. So there you have it. A little bit about me. Be sure to stay tuned — there are more Wezel tales to come.   Cheers, The Wezel
