Moose comes from the opening credits of Monty Python. Or Rocky and Bullwinkle. Either works in a pinch.

A bunch of people who consider conservatism to be all about immigration seem to have latched on to cheese as some sort of protest about the (in their eyes) watering down of conservatism or this site. I think this was the start of it.

Or possibly, a freeper named OWK once tried to sarcastically make the point that an article was irrelevant by replying to it that he likes cheese.

REBLOCHON

nom

 

Lait de Vache
Forme: Rond
Pâte: Pressée non cuite
Poids: 240 g à 280 g
Saison: Toute l'année
Affinage: 2 à 4 semaines
Vin: Vins blancs de Savoie ou Pommard

Le Roblochon est le premier fromage de Savoie à avoir obtenu l'AOC, en 1958 selon un texte initial, il se compose d'un mélange de 3 laits provenant des 3 races de vache qui lui permet de revendiquer l'AOC : abondance, tarine et montbéliarde Le Reblochon est né de l'ingéniosité des bergers savoyards. Au XIII éme siécle, ils dépendaient des grands propriétaires à qui il devaient remettre le produit de la traite. Pour garder un peu de lait , ils ne trayaient pas complétement leurs bêtes. Ce n'est qu'aprés le départ des régisseurs qu'ils recueillaient le reste du lait: ils "re-blochaient". D'où le nom dérivée du Reblochon fabriqué avec ce lait trés riche en crême, de seconde traite. Il est placé en hâloir pour le séchage et y sera retourné tous les 2 jours et lavé au petit lait. C'est au cours de cette étape qu'il se parera d'une croûte jaune safran recouverte d'une fine mousse blanche. Sa saveur fine et noisettée contraste parfois avec la forte odeur de cave qui se dégage du reblochon. Crémeux, le reblochon est souvent relevé par des arômes herbacés. La pâte ivoire est d'une consistance onctueuse et souple.

Tinfoil hats. Talk to the moon. Listen to Art Bell. Followers of conspiracy theories. Know that the major media doesn't tell the truth. Big Brother all the way. Like gold coins.

Tinfoil is theories so far out in space, they come as brain waves from Uranus, so you have to wear a tinfoil hat to filter them out.

Limburger is the most serious cheese if you don't count Bazooty Scheiss Cheese from Liptenschtien. As for Moose...I'm not sure what the most serious Moose is but Moose bites can be serious.

If you're getting 'brainwaves from Uranus' a tinfoil hat ain't gonna help!

Maybe tinfoil pants would work. ;^)

Cheese ... what one exclaims, usually in public, to embarrass the cheesee, when the cheesee has said or done something really stoopid.

Moose ... what keeps your hair in place.

Tinfoil Hats ... what protects your moosed hair from coming undone when someone publically embarrasses you with ... "Cheese!"

(Did I win?)

Aluminum Foil Deflector Beanie
An Effective, Low-Cost Solution To Combating Mind-Control

An Aluminum Foil Deflector Beanie (AFDB) is a type of headwear that can shield your brain from most electromagnetic psychotronic mind control carriers. AFDBs are inexpensive (even free if you don't mind scrounging for thrown-out aluminium foil) and can be constructed by anyone with at least the dexterity of a chimp (maybe bonobo). This cheap and unobtrusive form of mind control protection offers real security to the masses. Not only do they protect against incoming signals, but they also block most forms of brain scanning and mind reading, keeping the secrets in your head truly secret. AFDBs are safe and operate automatically. All you do is make it and wear it and you're good to go! Plus, AFDBs are stylish and comfortable.

What are you waiting for? Make one today!

What gives? I searched the page you linked to for both "cheese" and "moose", and neither chow up anywhere in your lexicon. Is that an answer?

I believe it all stems from an infamous incident in July of 1997, when a Canadian FReeper's sister (I forget which FReeper it was, someone may be able to help me out here) was at Lake Diefenbaker, having a wine and cheese party right by the lake with several of her friends. They were attacked by a wayward moose who bit the sister (I believe) and trampled in the cheese.

Where the tin foil hats came in, I'm not quite sure. I think those were a separate incident.

Yeah, especially if it is a chocolate "moose" paired with copious quanities of a complimentary liquer.

I know! I'm in the same boat! When that airliner went down in Queens, someone made a comment about a moose biting it. I still have NO idea what the heck they meant! There does seem to be some link between moose and cheese, though. I just haven't found it.

Typically said to a Democrat --- "Would you like a little cheese with your whine?"

Now that's ridiculous. But speaking of airliners, I did hear that the other flight - the one with Richard Reid where he was trying to blow up his shoes - I heard it was NOT Semtex that they recovered, but Semi-soft - cheese....
