because I nearly hurled watching Iron Chef last night

It was some sort of disgusting cheese extravaganza. I watched a chef take a chunk of slimy, mouldy Gorgonzola, throw it in a food processor, and turn it into a vomitous slurry of utter puke-tacular horror. I gagged.

It reminded me that I haven't bitched about disgusting barf cheese lately. But it has been on my mind since reading this AFP story about a European cheese scam involving the reuse of cheese that was unfit for human consumption:
"The rotten cheese, containing mice droppings as well as residue from plastic wrapping and ink labels, was mixed with fresh cheese products and used to make cheeses such as mozzarella and gorgonzola."
No, I know. I'm the unsophisticated non-foodie who is disgusted by cheese that smells like a big puddle of sick. With mould.

In case anyone needs reminding of the science behind this:

AG was recently at an event where one of the chefs was signing autographs.

AG said very loudly in front of him, "That is about as noteworthy as Kelly Clarkson."

Dude gave AG the stink eye for that.

As if!

You don't like cheese, but you'll lick another dude's hairy ass? Jesus, Rouge.

I don't find this gross...not so much because I like cheese, but because I really like drinking vomit.

Man, I usually think you're full of wisdom and preservatives, but in this case I gotsta disagree! I go into cheeseries and ASK FOR stinky Quebec cheeses.

But I'll have Velveeta on hand just in case!

Salem said...

I'm guessing a stroll on Kensington isn't up there on your favourite-things-to-do list. The cheese shop would get you from across the street.

Jason said...

LMAO at Butchie's comment. I have nothing to add since we've been down this road before.

Butchie said...

What about dick cheese?

madamerouge said...

LOL@phronk

Butchie, that's just gross!

Salem: not even if I was in a NASA space suit

Baba: I've enjoyed a couple of Quebec cheeses before. Just not ones that smell like chunder.

Butchie said...

I am so sorry about Estelle Getty.

Snooze said...

I don't know. I've heard stories about what they put in processed cheese. I think I'll stick to the vomit like cheeses.

OMG cheese is the one reason I could never go vegan. The stinkier the better.
