What a friend we have in cheeses
Posted by Teresa at 09:29 PM *

Some while back, I remarked on the availability of Bible stories reenacted by Legos, Pokemon critters, 3-D pictures, excessively cute stuffies, fish puppets, about a zillion different felt-board figures, dancing born-agains, amusing comics, creepy comics, two dozen full-length videos featuring animated vegetables, and Bart Simpson.

To these I must now add The Bible According to Cheese; or, A Brie History of Time, wherein Bible stories are reenacted by cheeses. The puns are wretched: Edam and Eve, David and Asiagoliath, Parmesan the Baptist. They’re currently soliciting further puns and threatening to bring it back for another season, if only so they can work in the Book of Cheeziekiel.

I dunno. Making fun of the Gouda Book in such a Krafty way. Sacriligious, any way you slice it. Made me feel kind of blue.

Well, Monty Python already taught us in "Life of Brian" that "Blessed are the cheesemakers..."

I think it was Thorstein Veblen who wrote about "the harried leisure class". He might rethink his ideas if he saw what the unharried came up with.... (And a nit to pick: shouldn't the first pictures of Edam and Eve be without figleaves?)
