Cheeselessness - the crisis continues

Here we are in Day Two of the Great Blog Format Crisis of 2010 - I feel like we need Charlie Gibson reporting live from my front lawn, and a special ABC News theme song just for the crisis.

I also feel there needs to be some sort of 'Cheese Dance'. Like a rain dance, with a sideways half-step every third shimmy, and spontaneous hokey-pokeying.
As part of our ongoing educational services, and in an effort to call on the great cheese (or, as I prefer, El Queso Gigante), I thought we would create a chant that can be shared the world 'round. Initially, I was just going to translate cheese for you in the languages of the world, but Google, being ever helpful, suggested the phrase 'Your head is a block of cheese'.

How apropos. Now you can attempt, in rudimentary local tongue, to describe your favorite blog (this one...what?) to strangers around the world as you travel this fine planet.

Spanish - su cabeza es un bloque de queso

Norwegian - hodet ditt er en blokk med ost

German - Ihr Kopf ist ein Block von Käse

French - votre tête est un bloc de fromage

Romanian - capul este un bloc de brânză

Polish - głowę jest blok sera

Italian - la tua testa è un blocco di formaggio

Dutch - je hoofd is een blok kaas

Greek - κεφάλι σας είναι ένα μπλοκ του τυριού

Swedish - huvudet är en bit ost

Russian - ваша голова блока сыра

Portuguese - sua cabeça é um bloco de queijo


Behold, the power of cheese! Use it in a sentence today! And we thank you for your support. Further bulletins as events warrant.

Oh gosh, the color has gotten worse! It's now a putrid shade that my dad used to refer to as, "Baby sh!t brown."

He always did have a way with words. ;)

And I kind of liked this one. I'll have to keep working at it...

I feel smarter just reading that list of translations.
And I love the quote today - Uncle Buck is a favorite at my house - mainly because of lines like that.

Make it stop! Make it stop!!!

Bring back the GD cheese, Elliott. I know you can do it. The force is strong in you.

In all honesty, Elliott, it's sorta nice to see I'm not the only one who has issues with the blog stuff from time to time. That said, I miss the cheese and I can't wait 'til it comes back! Cheers!

i'm liking the wedges...temporary?

Elliott said...

Temporary, I think they're too busy. But I think I've figured it out...

calicobebop said...

Can't wait to use this around the office! I'll throw a obnoxious accent in there to boot!

Mala said...

Baby shit brown?? I've got, I don't know, is that black? Sorta a steely black.
Can we atleast get Kraft slices?

Elliott said...

It's black now, simplest, least obtrusive thing I could find. I briefly had a background in place again, but then it stopped behaving again, it should be a series of tiny cheese wedges.

tracey said...

dude your blog is posessed. i know some people...i could have my husband make some calls. : )

Elliott said...

That would be appreciated. Of course if that doesn't work, I may need a Blogger voodoo doll...

Or HTML for dummies...

HTML for dummies ... LOL.

Nej said...

The Dutch have my vote for coolest version.

Elliott said...

I'm partial to the Norwegian, but the Dutch is fun, too.

Be nice and share!
