Mmm cheese May 28, 2008

As many of you know, I have a deep love of cheese. Saying my diet consists of 50% cheese would not be an exaggeration. So when I stumbled across this article, I was delighted to find that there is actually a sport devoted to cheese: cheese rolling. Once a year, fierce cheese-loving competitors from around the world flock to Gloucestershire, England to take part in the giant cheese roll. According to Reuters, Cheese rolling is thought to date back centuries. During rationing between 1941 and 1954, the wheel of cheese had to be substituted with a wooden circle containing a token piece of cheese inside.

I wonder if the winners get to eat the cheese…because that would be fucking cool.
