I always enjoy when I see people give away some GG in a really easy contest...........



So if you don't have an avatar post in this thread the reasons you like cheese (or dislike it) and I'll award a random poster with a whopper of a grand prize of 2 GG to help you on your way to avatar-hood!

Lets say the awards ceremony will take place in a week from today.....good luck!

*edit*

I have a feeling that the prize will be slightly bigger than 2 GG

*edit again*

The prize pool has been generously inflated by a number of users. (you can see the contributors by clicking on the amount of GG that has been donated to this post.......it's down there on the lower left between the green thumb and the gold coin.

We are halfway to an avatar......the entire amount of GG raised will be given as a prize (prizes)


*edit yet again*

We have enough for an avatar.......everything after the 30 GG will be going to a second cheese lover/hater.

I like cheese because it is a component of one of my favorite foods, the bacon cheese burger!


I also like cheese because it is such a good compliment to fresh fruit, one of the few tasty snacks that is actually good for you!

Have another 3 GG, those things are expensive.

Now as for cheese, screw you California! Wisconsin will always be fatter than you! Take your damn state dairy council commercials and cram 'em. Stop clogging my airways and arteries.

Buy local, Wisconsonites!

OK,

I like cheese in a great number of things, but for this one I'll let you know one of the best cheese items I've ever had. It's a breakfast skillet at a place called LePeep. I'll tell you about it.

They have these peasant potatoes (seasoned 3/4 inch cubes) and then it is mixed with onions, bacon and topped with a cheese blend (i think it's cheddar and jack), they put two eggs on top and put it in a broiler which poaches the 2 eggs. Whats great though is the cheese browns up really nice and comes out melty and not quite burned, but very good. Just one of the best uses of cheese.

Mmmmmmmmm cheese! There's very little food that cannot be improved with the addition of some cheese. One of my favorite restaurant menu items comes from a local Rib Shack. After a description of their chili, there is an option to add cheese; it is labeled "some cheese on that would rule." Words to live by, my friends!

My wife and I are both cheese fanatics. We took a vacation trip to Vermont last year, mostly to visit the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream facility in Waterbury. On the way we also stopped to visit the Cabot creamery, where they make a variety of award-winning cheeses. The Premium Select cheddar, aged at least two years, is to die for ...

Cheese has been an integral part my life, just as board games have. Having trouble expressing my love for cheese in prose, I decided to write a poem:

For lunch after board games with mommy,
Was a sandwich -- white bread & salami,
The taste did not please,
'Til I added some cheese;
The result was oh so umami.

[Edit: I decided to write a second poem (My apologies to Joyce Kilmer)]

I think that I shall never seize,
A food as lovely as some cheese.

When my hungry mouth is prest,
Against the cheese, I must confess:

Senses are heightened, self-control is hard,
Like when I'm holding the Monopoly* card.

I've had cheese warm, and I've had cheese cold,
But I never thought cheese could win GeekGold.

I like cheese.

I like queso panela - Mexican cheese that shapes itself to the mold and packaging. Don't let it sit for too long, though. It's watery and will weep.

I like Oaxaca cheese - Mexican string cheese rolled up into a ball. White cheese, nice and creamy

I like queso fresco - white, crumbly Mexican cheese sprinkled over beans or enchiladas.

I like swiss cheese - the tangier the better

My sister insists I can't each cheese any more without feeling ill effects. I'll eat cheese anyway.

Top three cheeses:

1) Feta: It's used in everything delicious, courtesy the Mediterranean.
2) Cheddar: It's used in patty melts and makes a perfect topping to that old standby, the burger.
3) Blue Cheese: Despite the name, it's typically white--but don't let that stop you. It works on salads AND burgers... the double-use moldy punch!

Wait, what's that? It's Bonus Cheese!

American Cheese: While it's processed beyond belief, it's the ideal way to make a Patty-Melt, a tasty hold-me-over snack!

Without cheese there would be a large hole in the English language not only food. Think about it, there would be no:

mac and cheese,
ham and cheese,
pepperoni and cheese,
bacon and cheese,
what would we do without "and cheese"? What is better than "and cheese"? "And extra cheese", of course!
Nothing would ever be cheesy, how cheesy is that? cry

Plus milk would have nothing to grow up into!

Oh man, I'm itching for that GG but I think my response will be unpopular..

I do like cheese and have liked it a lot in my life. Who doesn't like a rich complement to almost any food? I used to make triple-layer grilled cheese and roast beef sandwiches on my waffle iron, licking strands of cheddar from my plate greedily.

Now though, no cheese! I went vegan a couple years ago. I do like cheese in itself, but after witnessing a lot about how it gets to my plate, I couldn't stomach it any more. My partner and roommate still eat a lot of it, so I definitely see it being appreciated, but it ain't for me anymore! It's sort of like a long lost girlfriend...you remember her fondly, but are glad you don't have to put up with her hair in your shower drain anymore.

I like cheese.

When faced with a tough decision in any game, usually hesitating as to whether I send my men over the top or dig in and regroup, I am often goaded by my opponent "What are you? Man or mouse?"

After a slight pause I usually remind my opponent (and myself) that "I like cheese".

And of course cheese & pineapple pinned together by a cocktail stick has to be the greatest party food ever.

And cheese and biscuits of an an evening is a great excuse to open (and finish) a bottle of red wine.

And sprinkled on any pasta dish and grilled for a few minutes is just yum.

And grilling a whole camerbert and drizzling with honey, sprinkling with a few thyme sprigs and then scooping up with fresh crusty bread always wows the girls. (I do know some cheap girls whistle )

Mmmm... best stop now in case I am branded a cheeseboard geek and not just a board game geek.

Cheers for the comp

Fun competition, i will add to the prize pool. =)

Also, since it's as given as Busen Memo in a Geeklist, have a sketch:




Wensleydale: Good morning, sir.

Mousebender: Good Morning. I was sitting in the public library on Thurmon Street just now, skimming through 'Rogue Herries' by Horace Walpole, when suddenly I came over all peckish.

Wensleydale: Peckish, sir?

Mousebender: Esurient.

Wensleydale: Eh?

Mousebender: (broad Yorkshire) Eee I were all hungry, like!

Wensleydale: Oh, hungry.

Mousebender: (normal accent) In a nutshell. So I thought to myself, 'a little fermented curd will do the trick'. So I curtailed my Walpolling activities, sallied forth and infiltrated your place of purveyance to negotiate the vending of some cheesy comestibles. (smacks his lips)

Wensleydale: Come again?

Mousebender: (broad northern accent) I want to buy some cheese.

Wensleydale: Oh, I thought you were complaining about the music!

Mousebender: (normal voice) Heaven forbid. I am one who delights in all manifestations of the Terpsichorean muse.

Wensleydale: Sorry?

Mousebender: I like a nice dance - you're forced to.

Quick cut to a Viking.

Viking (broad Northern accent): Anyway.

Cut back to cheese shop.

Wensleydale: Who said that?

Mousebender: (normal voice) Now my good man, some cheese, please.

Wensleydale: Yes certainly, sir. What would you like?

Mousebender: Well, how about a little Red Leicester.

Wensleydale: I'm, afraid we're fresh out of Red Leicester, sir.

Mousebender: Oh, never mind. How are you on Tilsit?

Wensleydale: Never at the end of the week, sir. Always get it fresh first thing on Monday.

Mousebender: Tish tish. No matter. Well, four ounces of Caerphilly, then, if you please, stout yeoman.

Wensleydale: Ah well, it's been on order for two weeks, sir, I was expecting it this morning.

Mousebender: Yes, it's not my day, is it? Er, Bel Paese?

Wensleydale: Sorry.

Mousebender: Red Windsor?

Wensleydale: Normally, sir, yes, but today the van broke down.

Mousebender: Ah. Stilton?

Wensleydale: Sorry.

Mousebender: Gruyere? Emmental?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Any Norwegian Jarlsberger?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Liptauer?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Lancashire?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: White Stilton?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Danish Blue?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Double Gloucester?

Wensleydale: ...No.

Mousebender: Cheshire?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Any Dorset Blue Vinney?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Brie, Roquefort, Pont-l'Évêque, Port Salut, Savoyard, Saint-Paulin, Carre-de-L'Est, Boursin, Bresse-Bleu, Perle de Champagne, Camembert?

Wensleydale: Ah! We do have some Camembert, sir.

Mousebender: You do! Excellent.

Wensleydale: It's a bit runny, sir.

Mousebender: Oh, I like it runny.

Wensleydale: Well as a matter of fact it's very runny, sir.

Mousebender: No matter. No matter. Hand over le fromage de la Belle France qui s'apelle Camembert, s'il vous plaît.

Wensleydale: I think it's runnier than you like it, sir.

Mousebender: (smiling grimly) I don't care how excrementally runny it is. Hand it over with all speed.

Wensleydale: Yes, sir. (bends below counter and reappears) Oh...

Mousebender: What?

Wensleydale: The cat's eaten it.

Mousebender: Has he?

Wensleydale: She, sir.

Mousebender: Gouda?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Edam?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Caithness?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Smoked Austrian?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Sage Darby?

Wensleydale: No, sir.

Mousebender: You do have some cheese, do you?

Wensleydale: Certainly, sir. It's a cheese shop, sir. We've got...

Mousebender: No, no, no, don't tell me. I'm keen to guess.

Wensleydale: Fair enough.

Mousebender: Wensleydale:.

Wensleydale: Yes, sir?

Mousebender: Splendid. Well, I'll have some of that then, please.

Wensleydale: Oh, I'm sorry sir, I thought you were referring to me, Mr

Wensleydale:.

Mousebender: Gorgonzola?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Parmesan?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Mozzarella?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Pippo Crème?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Any Danish Fynbo?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Czechoslovakian Sheep's Milk Cheese?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: Venezuelan Beaver Cheese?

Wensleydale: Not today sir, no.
(pause)

Mousebender: Well let's keep it simple, how about Cheddar?

Wensleydale: Well, I'm afraid we don't get much call for it around these parts.

Mousebender: Not call for it? It's the single most popular cheese in the world!

Wensleydale: Not round these parts, sir.

Mousebender: And pray what is the most popular cheese round these parts?

Wensleydale: Ilchester, sir.

Mousebender: I see.

Wensleydale: Yes, sir. It's quite staggeringly popular in the manor, squire.

Mousebender: Is it.

Wensleydale: Yes sir, it's our number-one seller.

Mousebender: Is it.

Wensleydale: Yes sir.

Mousebender: Ilchester, eh?

Wensleydale: Right.

Mousebender: OK, I'm game. Have you got any, he asked, expecting the answer no?

Wensleydale: I'll have a look, sir...nnnnnnooooooooo.

Mousebender: It's not much of a cheese shop really, is it?

Wensleydale: Finest in the district, sir.

Mousebender: And what leads you to that conclusion?

Wensleydale: Well, it's so clean.

Mousebender: Well, it's certainly uncontaminated by cheese.

Wensleydale: You haven't asked me about Limberger, sir.

Mousebender: Is it worth it?

Wensleydale: Could be.

Mousebender: OK, have you...will you shut that bloody dancing up! (the music stops)

Wensleydale: (to dancers) Told you so.

Mousebender: Have you got any Limberger?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: No, that figures. It was pretty predictable, really. It was an act of purest optimism to pose the question in the first place. Tell me something, do you have any cheese at all?

Wensleydale: Yes, sir.

Mousebender: Now I'm going to ask you that question once more, and if you say 'no' I'm going to shoot you through the head. Now, do you have any cheese at all?

Wensleydale: No.

Mousebender: (shoots him) What a senseless waste of human life.

Cheese. Oh God, cheese!

I must have cheese in my veins. Doesn't matter the type. A delicate Parmagiano Reggiano? Most excellent! The semi-plastic cheese that comes powdered or in a spray can? Bring it on! Enchiladas? Make mine cheese, please. Favorite childhood dessert? Pineapple with grated cheese.

Other people fight the temptation of chocolate. I LIKE chocolate -- a lot -- but I can walk past it with only a slight tingle. But a single crumb of cheese on a plate, even if (especially if?) burnt-on, and I MUST have it.

Back in school, a friend who was studying Home Ec told me one way to lose weight was to add cheese to something, since it would fill you up faster. That was well over 30 years ago, and I'm STILL laughing! Silly people! If there's NO cheese, I don't need to eat it. Put cheese on it, and I will eat it until it's absolutely gone, and then lick the plate.

I don't care if I win; I had to pay respect to my favorite addiction. And BTW -- anyone who tries to make me choose between cheese and gaming will not see their next birthday. And anyway, gaming is FULL of cheese!
