This Week In Cheese – 14/8/2011

Yes, our Cheese News feature is back! Sort of. I refuse to write about Chuck E. Cheese. Reason For UK Riots Finally Uncovered That’s right. Everyone has been offering up an opinion on the reason for the rioting, looting and general destruction in England this past week. Well, like Julia Roberts in The Pelican Brief, […]



The visuals coming out of London have seriously lopped off a huge chunk of faith that I once had in humanity. These riots aren’t solving anything, and it’s looking like they’re happening for a variety of reasons. Well, whatever the reasons, there are a lot of idiots out there rioting and destroying public property for […]

How Did Your Idols Turn Out?

Did you have a hero or an idol growing up? I had a few, and I’ve collected a few new ones along the way. One thing I’ve noticed, is that heroes are harder to find as you get older. Probably because it’s harder to be impressed and easier to cut through the bullshit. So I […]

Canada’s Government Falls and Guess Whose Fault It Is

So, Canada’s Conservative government fell the other day to a vote of non-confidence. That’s right. In Canada, when the opposition parties vote that you suck, they can force an election. Or something like that. This is Canada after all. Land of buck toothed beavers, high taxes and marbled cheddar. What a country! But don’t worry. […]

Egyptian Revolutionaries Want Us To Rule

I’m sure you’ve all heard about what’s going on in Egypt. But just in case you’ve been living under a rock or spending an inordinate amount of time debating on which app to download to your new iPad, let me fill you in. The Egyptian people are revolting. No, I don’t mean the Egyptian people […]

A Year Of Cheese…A Life Of Cheese

Quite a few people spent the last few days of 2010 looking back, reviewing the year and making resolutions. I spent the last few days of 2010 trying to drink enough to completely obliterate 2010 from my memory. Success! So, I’ve spent the last couple of days sobering up and attempting to remember parts of […]


Cheese In The News – Vol. 16

En garde! The World Cheese Awards took place again and this year’s champ comes from…England!  Cornish Blue, made in Liskeard by Philip and Carol Stansfield, nosed ahead of 2,600 entries from 26 countries for the win. It would seem that while France was busy being snooty, England has developed a choice of 700 homegrown cheeses while the French […]

None of my men look like this. Yet.

Cheese In The News – Vol. 15

Favourite cheese takes top honours Two Cotswold food producers have won top titles at this year’s British Cheese Awards. There were almost 900 entries from 189 cheese makers which were judged by 56 cheese experts. I wonder if one of those judges wasn’t Jayne, from InJaynesWorld. Second place winner, Catherine Elliott, said she was over the moon […]

Cheese In The News – Vol. 14

A Day Late And Several Dollars Short   September’s edition of Cheese In The News is a little late because I forgot the old “30 days hath September” poem and subsequently believed today was September 31st. I was going to try and make some witty comment here, or try to blame the error on being overworked or […]

WWFC Mourns Morrie R. Yohai, inventor of Cheez Doodles, has died. He was 90.  Yohai developed the snack at his Old London Foods factory in the 1950s. The company already was selling Dipsy Doodles rippled corn chips. He applied a similar concept for the Cheez Doodles, adapting the machine to extrude liquefied cornmeal into a […]

My Brain’s Gone Fishin’

When I opened my laptop today, I was disgusted to realize that there was a crushed earwig on the keyboard. It must have been sitting there without me realizing it the night before, and when I went to shut the lid…CRUNCH. I kind of saw that as a parallel to my life and my job. […]


Cheese In The News – Vol. 12

Why, Oh Why, Couldn’t It Be Called Chuck E. Chalupa??!! Authorities confronted a sex offender at a Florida Chuck E. Cheese, but didn’t arrest him.  Police said he was doing nothing wrong.  Of course he wasn’t. Hey, he’s got just as much right to be there as any non-pedophiles. See, he was found guilty of sexually abusing […]

Let’s Name The Company…

True, the coasters are wine related, but if you’re not having cheese with your wine, well then…well then! So anyway, remember way back when  I mentioned the unfortunately named game […]
