Abe Lincoln, the Big Cheese!
Happy July 4th, Blog Guy. I just saw an Abe Lincoln statue made of cheese. Isn’t that disrespectful?
It was Abe who pushed the bounds of home entertaining by rolling up cheese and pecans together, creating the popular cheese log.
HE did that?
Sure. He called them Lincoln Logs. He also pioneered new forms of smelly Limburger Cheese, making his own pungent recipe.
Uh-oh. What was that called?
What do you think? “Stinkin’ Lincoln.”
Apart from the “Gettysburg Address,” Lincoln’s most famous speech was his 1863 “Homage to Fromage.” And, his 1864 presidential campaign slogan was “He’s not just gouda, he’s grate!”
You’re right, I do recall something about that. What was that phrase he used to predict the mass popularity of cheese?
He called it a “feta compli.”
Gosh Blog Guy, you seem to know quite a few cheese-related puns.
Well, I don’t like to boast, but they do call me the “Münster Punster.”
