News, but not the serious kind

Cheese, oh soothing cheese…

May 26, 2009

You’ve GOT to help me, Blog Guy! Big News is breaking too fast. North Korean nukes, a new Supreme Court Justice, the economy….

Can you please direct me to the LEAST significant thing on earth? I need to totally zone out for about 45 seconds with the most inconsequential thing you can find.

We don’t carry insignificant news on reuters.com. We’re the big guys.

Don’t kid a kidder, Blog Guy. I know you’ve got something lightweight hidden away. Hurry, my head is about to explode from important stuff!

Well, don’t tell anybody where you got this. Three words for you: Latvian cheese festival. We have 45 seconds of video.

With all due respect, how do I know this isn’t a trap to get me to learn serious stuff about Latvian cheese?

Because there’s no narration. Trust me, you won’t have a clue what you’re seeing.

I’m clicking now, but I still find it hard to believe anybody would really show that.

Oh, we’ve got it, but if you watch it and never awaken again, don’t send your family blubbering to me.

Oh, this cheese would go just wonderfully with the colombian ants! And the whole thing washed down with a nice cup of Colombian coffee, like the one you had in here a short while ago… yum!

Or better yet, a nice warm glass of urinaid.

Dear Blog Guy,
Thank you so much for the hugely entertaining video of the Latvian Cheese Festival. I was transfixed! I may never sleep again!

As you know, I have devoted my life to the study of cheese. Last December, you were kind enough to publish a few of my humble monographs on the Latinate etymology of “cheese.”

Cheese permeates my very existence, from my creed (“I Believe in Fondu”) to the medicinal effects of cheese (“Viva Velveeta!”)

Please, Blog Guy, show us more cheese!

@ detroit johnnie

Urinaid?! WTF?!

…Anyway, not to take advantage of the cheap ‘cheesy’ joke opportunity but it can be so hard not to ham it up on these things…
