A Limerick A Day


Quebec’s L’Extra Camembert won the coveted ‘Best of Class’ award in the camembert category at the 2018 World Championship Cheese Contest in Madison, Wisconsin, USA

The news from the world cup of cheese
Has caused the poor French some unease
As Canada’s where
You’ll find Camembert
With a flavour that’s certain to please.

      I had to think Caerphilly before I got that.*

      *not really. It’s a truly terrible joke.

          I genuinely hate punning but I’m going to give it a bash.
          It’s edam fine joke: I’m sorry for being rude, Janet.

            I prefer the word assertive to rude to describe you my feisty internet Andy

            You’re too kind. Erm, too cheddary jarlsberg erm pfffft delice de bourgogne. I can’t pun it. I give up.

    Tell you what though, punning aside, I love a good stinky Camembert. Which is weird, because my most favouritest cheese is La Vache Qui Rit.

      1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

        La Vaca Que Rica. I’ve followed it across many countries.
        Yummy creamy goodness. I think the ladies in the audience know what I’m talking about.

          mash it up with mackerel( or tuna) and fresh fennel, pinch of cumin to make a quick apero dip

    on just baked French bread with strawberry jam

    when purchased + eaten in Brittany or Normandy

      Yum. Comté is a fine chiz.
      I’d differ on the jam. I say no to strawberry: raspberry, gooseberry or if I’m feeling frisky, FIG.

        Comté’s my favourite cheese of all. By far. I once mentioned this to a French guy I met on a train – more to stop him talking about Vietnam – and he looked aghast. Said, “people from Eastern France are pieces of fupping sheeet”. I assumed he meant Comté, too.

            Ah fish out a water sometimes but
            overall positive
            heading “home” this weekend for two weeks for some general mayhem
            What could go wrong…..

          2. Janet, I ate my Avatar

            fingers crossed
            whoop whoop
            gets metro elbows and fasic up and ready for action

    All about a ripe oozing goat with fresh fig, honey and a fine medoc
    cram all into gob at once for maximum pleasure

          i would only ever talk hard cheese. i dislike soft cheese. and feta… can’t imagine how anyone ever thought that was a good idea. I dislike manchego too (but I like how annoyed the spanish get when you say that)

          1. Brother Barnabas

            absolutely noy, because i don’t like cream
            i do, though, like mozzarella – is that a soft cheese? if so, i’ve obviously been talking b0ll0x all this time

          2. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

            O Fortuna
            velut luna
            statu variabilis

            Oh, hang on. You said burrata. Not Burana.

    1. Janet, I ate my Avatar

      nobodies perfect
      Just don’t make me glad bag it in the fridge
      that’s what the fridge is supposed to smell like

    It looks like it won that prize already in 2010, according to the sticker in the pic……? Non?

    Not madly shocking that it might win it again.
