            I understand. I have a feta attraction for this thread.

              1. re: trolley

                Oh queso this must be the end. I guess we can rind it up.

                1. re: gingertown

                  I just let out a blood curdling scream...Oh how I Swiss I'd never started this veritable avalanche of cheesy puns.

                    1. re: Servorg

                      cheesy they may be but there are a few of which i've become quite fondue might feel the same way after a while.

                      and i find it comforting to know that i'm not provolone in enjoying them.

                      and for those of you using apple, are you enjoying your mac and cheese?

                      (at the risk of being sacrilegious) then there was this new breed on mice found that live only in churches. they worship cheeses. something about being their grate lord!

                      finally, CHEESE: grate at any meal.

                      i'll stop mainly because i'm going to king hua for lunch.

                        i havarti posted more than i should. curd somebody help me? maybe instead of posting multiple puns, i should just kraft singles.

                          1. re: gingertown

                            what do you call cheese that doesn't belong to you?

                                      blessed are the cheese makers!

            2. I've been told that some Asians avoid cheese. Guess they don't have the right culture for it?

                Ahem. I know it's a joke, but the side effects from dairy ingestion may not be all that funny to the many Asians that suffer from lactose intolerance.... ;)

                1. re: ilysla

                  For them, we have soy cheese. No offense intended.

                  1. re: mc michael

                    I'm sure that a lot of Asians wish there was a "soy cheese" equivalent for the "flush" that comes with alcoholic beverages...(well, in Colorado they now have an option).

                      1. re: revets2

                        Unless they're cutting the Pepcid with Antabuse it won't do a thing for the flush...

                    1. re: mc michael

                      FWIW, the more you ferment/process milk, the more lactose is transformed. hard cheeses are virtually lactose free, and a lot of asians can eat yogurt.

                      1. re: barryc

                        i was about to say something similar. when my son was a toddler he had a hard time with lactose. found out that higher the fat, lower the lactose. So even though the dr suggested lowfat milk we switched to full fat un-homogenized milk and he was all good.

                        1. re: barryc

                          In Japan, most everyone under 60 eats a fair amount of cheese. However, my wife's mother (born about 100 years ago) could not eat cheese (said it tastes like soap) but my wife (now 65) eats any kind of cheese except blue and likes it. One of the most popular home delivery items is pizza (Dominos, Pizza Hut and Japanese chains). Oh, and most dairy is big, especially yogurt drinks.

                      2. re: ilysla

                        not just asians; that powdered milk that got shipped to africa also went to waste. the ugly american strikes again.

                        1. re: barryc

                          True, this. But, given my penchant for going off-topic, I thought I'd keep the scope more narrow. ;)

                          And mc michael, no offense taken. ;)

                    2. This thread is whey over the top.
