It was also reported by Yahoo Ewes that Norwegian Rats were the suspected arsonists who regarded the cheese as bait in the construction of a better mousetrap. They were seen leaving the scene in a GTO.
“Giant Goat Cheese Fire”
Good name for a rock band?
As long as it wasn’t jalapeno cheddar. That would be a sad loss.
*pours self a shot of ouzo*
Wouldn’t the cheese be good for a moose trap? Just a bit for the moose’s sister. There are lovely lakes and majestic moose in all of Scandinavia.
This cheese fire is about the most excitation Norwegians get so leave them alone!!! :)
Something that no one has mentioned...Can you imagine the STENCH???? The reason it burned for two days is probably because the firefighters couldn’t get near it due to hyper-gagging. Ewwwwww.......
and the cheese melted for 6 days, and on the 7th day, there were nachos, and the people cried out for wings, and football. And there was a multitude of each. and the people were happy, but sleepy. so it was written.
You’ve all been had by Yahoo. This is not about giant goats. It’s about whey.
The Yahoo article specifically mentions goat cheese, but the reuters link embedded in the article makes no mention of this.
Reuters indicates “brunost” and is specifically stated as being made from whey.
Some quick internet research indicates other variants of this cheese use the milk of giant goats and is called “geitost” or “gjetost”.
Alas, this is not what caught fire though. The whey kind did.
The ruinous yuppie pizza makers in St. Helena and Calistoga are sad. They will no longer be able to turn out inedible stone wheels that resembled Spartan shields in texture and strength and smelled like a dead, beached whale. The bodhisattvas in the Tibetan Book of Dead have struck a blow for humankind against yuppie transgressors and killed their nefarious business dead. I, for one, am overjoyed.
MMMMM, fried cheese! A little black bread and some dried fruit, a glass of wine...
Breakfast of champions!
FR old-timers will remember that with cheese and Norway already locked down, the only thing the story is missing is a moose.
The next morning, there was a nice fondue on the ground.
Or was that fine dew?
