Writing Challenges

Make It Cheesy

Welcome to Day 1 of 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing, the creative writing challenge that 4 out of 5 psychiatrists agree will do irreparable damage to your psyche. Today’s prompt is Cheesy, as is the person who suggested it. Yes, that would be me. Don’t forget to link up at the end of this post if you participated before our time was up.

In my house, this isn’t a cheese platter, it’s a snack.

My sincerest apologies to the Eagles for completely decimating the lyrics to their hit song Take It Easy.

Make it Cheesy

Well, I’m a-runnin’ down the road
Tryin’ to loosen my load
‘Cause I ate way too much cheese last night;
Four kinds of cheddar,
Two kinds of goat cheese,
One Brie that was oh so right.

Make it cheesy, make it cheesy
Don’t let the sound of your stomach grumbling
Drive you crazy

Parmesan, while you still can
And don’t forget to try Edam
Just don’t eat cheese from a can
And make it cheesy

Well, I’m a-standing by the counter
With an open box of crackers
And such a fine sight to see
It’s Cotswold, my Lord
Sittin’ on my cheese board
Just as yummy as it can be

Come on baby, pass the Colby
I gotta know if Camembert
Is gonna sate me

It may hurt but I still win
Though I might never go poop again
So open up and shovel it in
And make it cheesy

Well I’m a-runnin’ down the road
Trying to loosen my load,
Got a world of tummy trouble on my mind
Need a Provolone
That won’t make me groan
It’s so hard to find

Make it cheesy, make it cheesy
Don’t let the sound of your stomach grumbling
Drive you crazy

Come on baby, pass the Colby
I gotta know if Camembert
Is gonna sate me

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, we got it cheesy
Ricotta make it cheesy



Ok, I decided to set the bar really low on Day 1. This way, everything I post from now on will seem brilliant in comparison. Now go and check out the other, much more talented, much less cheesy bloggers participating in this madness!

  • That’s pretty funny.

  • I just love the verse…

    It may hurt but I still win

    And make it cheesy

    You’re not only cheesy but a very funny lady. That was really gouda, Nicky.

  • Barb

    That was great!

    and here we go again…. :)))))

    Nicky I am going away for the weekend, but have my Sat. prompt ready- can you link me up tomorrow? I will post it later today… :)))))

  • No problem Barb. You can even post it tomorrow if you prefer. Glad to have you joining us again. πŸ™‚

  • Wow. Nicky. I don’t know if I should be impressed or just disgusted. On the one hand, I want to compliment you on the fabulous lyrics, on the other hand, I kinda want to commit suicide after reading a song dedicated to cheese.

  • Nathanael Vitkus

    Nice cheesy tribute song πŸ™‚ I dig it a lot.

  • Nicky, I agree with Dufus, this is really Gouda, but it’s only gonna get Feta and Feta. Sorry. πŸ˜‰

  • Well look at you getting all creative and such. I give this post five slices of cheese!

  • I am sure that the Eagles are jealous and wish that’s how they would of written it in the first place.

  • MikeWJ

    That platter of cheeses is making me hungry.

    I hate you, and I hate this competition. How am I supposed to write, read and comment every day for 28 days? I have a job, and a family, and I need time to eat and shower.

    Especially shower.

    Don’t ask.

  • Tami Von Zalez

    I think I slide under the cheesy bar … for this post.

  • “Set the bar low?!” Are you freakin’ kidding me? This is brilliant! Love it and love you for including Cotswold (In your post if not on the platter. You can’t full me with just any orange stuff, you know.). πŸ˜‰

  • You have mad skillz! Love it!

  • You rocked it! Like Heinz did to “Anticipation,” you’ve done to “Take It Easy.” Congrats! I’ll never listen to the song in the same way again. Btw, I think I prefer your lyrics.

  • Azara

    I love cheese, so I really shouldn’t have read this when I was hungry. My stomach is definitely growling.

  • Oh Nicky, Nicky. You’re wasted here. Broadway. Really. I feel an entire cheese-based show coming on. Hmmm… 42nd Brie? Annie Get Your Gouda? Fynbo On The Roof? No! Wait! CAMEN-BARET! Wanna team up? We could make a truckle-load of money! Indigo =)

  • Oh Nicky, that is just awesome! Maybe the next song can be devoted to fiber – you know to help things come out all right…

  • I laughed OUT LOUD just as the “song” started. And i SANG IT all the way through. This is so much harder than it looks… you are a GENIUS! I could never do a song like that, and you did it perfectly! Oh, and Cotswold… never heard of it until you…. and then I tried it… and I am HOOKED. Why can’t I be rich and buy tons of it!!!!

  • Thank you. It was supposed to be woeful. Sigh.

  • Why thank you Dufus. And I actually did think of you when I wrote that verse. I don’t know what that says about our friendship. πŸ™‚

  • A song dedicated to cheese? And here I thought you’d appreciate that I was honest about cheese’s adverse affects on one’s digestive system – that you would laud my open admission that cheese is not the easiest food to digest, even if it is the tastiest. πŸ™‚

  • Thank you Nathanael. A man after my own heart. And cheese. πŸ™‚

  • Hah! And so it begins!! πŸ™‚

    Thanks Linda!

  • Five? That’s it? I thought it definitely merited 10!

  • Oh yes, Cheryl. I have no doubt. πŸ™‚

  • Still with the whining? Sheesh man, I thought you’d appreciate the opportunity to ignore your job and your family.

    As for the shower, I wasn’t going to ask. Trust me.

  • Tami, I think you SET the cheesy bar! πŸ™‚

  • Aw, thanks Jayne! And how could I not include Cotswold?

  • Thanks, hon. Mike actually tried to convince me to make a video of him playing the song on guitar and me singing it. Needless to say, not happening!! πŸ™‚

  • Hah! That’s awesome Lauren. I think I need to send it to Kraft as my resumΓ© and see if they’ll hire me!! As for preferring my lyrics, yet again you demonstrate that you are a woman of impeccable taste! πŸ™‚

  • Well, as the song says Azara, don’t let the sound of your stomach grumbling drive you crazy! Go get yourself some cheese!!

  • Oh yes, Indigo! We’ll be the next Rodgers and Hammerstein. I can see it now…

    Oh, and btw, have you been spending a lot of time around Dufus?

  • You? Made me snort!! Fiber. Yes, I’ll get right on that. You’re hysterical!!

  • A genius? Have you fallen and bumped your head Katherine?! πŸ™‚
    Thank you and YAY! You tried Cotswold!!! Isn’t it amazing! I swear, if we ever succeed with the whole world domination thing, the first thing I’m doing is making it a law that everyone should have Cotswold!

  • mybearsnme

    sniff sniff… you didn’t add my name to the cheese roll – and I blogged about cheese .. I am sooo cheesed http://leftoverchocolatestitches.blogspot.ca/

  • mybearsnme

    ohh – love the verses – I was singing it too πŸ™‚

  • Cadeaux

    Not sure if I did this right. My name has a big red X next to it. Can anyone see me?

  • Cadeaux

    I hope everyone gets a shot at being number one – as no one keeps reading all the way to number 18, dammit.
    Yes, I am bitter. I bet the opened bag of horrid salty licorice would take that bitter taste right out of my mouth. πŸ™‚

  • KZ

    Madness indeed! I’ve heard this song a number of times, but I admit I had to pull it up on YouTube to give your modified lyrics some context. I’m only a casual fan of cheese, but your enthusiasm keeps this silly song afloat.

  • Cadeaux

    God, I hope everyone doesn’t take me serious with my comments on their blogs…otherwise I am in big trouble.
    Speaking of blogs – like half of them don’t acknowledge my browser or something and I can’t comment. Ugh.

  • Oh, I never be hanging with Dufus… πŸ˜‰

  • best. lyrics. ever.
