My love of cheese occasionally takes me to odd (albeit merry) places; witness this piece I discovered about the word, or concept of, “cheesiness“, as in Las Vegas Elvis, Celine Dion and tropical themed weddings in the Poconos—far too long to read in any one sitting, but so weird it’s brilliant and I find myself returning now and then to nibble off yet another, and another, mad bit.
From Sailing the Seas of Cheese, by Erik Anderson:
“On the one hand, there is no food product cheesier than Cheese Whiz. On the other hand, there is nothing about Cheese Whiz itself that is cheesy in the aesthetic sense. Of course it might be strikingly cheesy to serve Cheese Whiz at a cocktail party or something like that, in which case, Cheese Whiz would be cheesy in both senses of the term.”
I just may have that Artexed on my best cocktail party tray.
