Behold, the power of cheese!

It's hard to keep a good blog down, my friends. All your well-wishing has been appreciated as we worked through the trying times of the last few days.Of course, we know how patient I am (not), and yet I actually managed almost two hours of experimentation until I was able to identify the weakest link and remove it from the equation.

We're back in business. Good thing, those news crews were wreaking havoc on my lawn.

To pay tribute to the glorious caseic delights, I felt it only proper to share with you James McIntyre's finest poem:

Ode on the Mammoth Cheese

Weight over seven thousand pounds.

We have seen thee, queen of cheese,
Lying quietly at your ease,
Gently fanned by evening breeze,
Thy fair form no flies dare seize.
All gaily dressed soon you'll go
To the great Provincial show,
To be admired by many a beau
In the city of Toronto.
Cows numerous as a swarm of bees,
Or as the leaves upon the trees,
It did require to make thee please.
And stand unrivalled, queen of cheese.
May you not receive a scar as
We have heard that Mr. Harris
Intends to to send you off as far as
The great world's show at Paris.
Of the youth beware of these,
For some of them might rudely squeeze
And bite your cheek, then songs or glees
We could not sing, oh! queen of cheese.
We'rt thou suspended from balloon,
You'd cast a shade even at noon,
Folks would think it was the moon
About to fall and crush them soon.

Who said we're an uncultured lot around these bloggy parts?

Hooray for cheese.

And, the other things.

You know. Aluminum. So that you can make metal replicas of the cheese.

What? You were thinking I was talking about the boobs?

My appreciation of the funbags is so commonplace that I didn't think it necessary to speak of them.

MJenks said...

Oh, yeah, and I should really get around to translating "your head is a block of cheese" into Latin. I meant to yesterday, but then We'll go with that.

Elliott said...

I look forward to the translation! I already keep a permanent link to your Ecce Potestas Casei post in my 'Backstory' section.

I can't imagine the disturbing sweatiness of foam rubber.

Cheese. Cheese is good : )

Like the new background a lot! Very spatial, 3-d. Glad the problems worked out.

You know, I'm going to have to vote against the novelty cheese brassiere though. It's a little too hard-plastic looking. I think they could have made it a bit more realistic. The concept is good!

Elliott said...

Dogimo - the look is designed to complement the rest of the line-up...

dogimo said...

Ah! But they don't show the lingerie in with "other apparel"?

I love the dunce cap! That's choice.

Mala said...

I have a sexy nightie made of pure Velveeta.

Elliott said...

I'll bet Joe just melts at the sight of you...

I completely lost my train of thought when I read Mala's comment. Well done, lady love!

calicobebop said...

Great news about the cheese! And yeah, Mala? You take the cake!

Amber Tidd Murphy said...

I had colby jack for lunch. I rolled it up and ate it like a taco.

I thought of you.

Bev said...

Long live the cheese!
