RE: Cheese of mass destruction

I've been laughing about that since I saw it this morning - I can picture the court case (very Pythonesque):

"You are charged that on the 24th May you wilfully sold a round of cheese for the express purposes of cheese rolling - how do you plead madame?"

"I was only trying to make a living, I never expected the Spanish Inquisition..."

Nah, Their Cheese Shop didn't actually have any to sell.

I agree. Waste of damn good cheese in my opinion!

RE: Cheese of mass destruction

I imagine if she simply sold a cheese to someone that was subsequently used in an illegal cheese-chasing event then she couldn't be held liable, there's no law against selling cheese and the vendor is not responsible for what a customer does with a product (otherwise I'd have sued Dyson a long time ago...), it would probably only be an issue if she supplied the cheese free of charge or for a nominal fee that wouldn't be considered enough to be regarded as a realistic purchase.

Although it could be determined that description the Dyson Ball Cleaner could be misinterpreted :rofl:

 

Whilst this story is amusing, it does somewhat confirm my theory that the world is now officially bonkers

Can you imagine the headline if someone received injuries:

"Granny Receives ASBO For Dangerous Cheese"

Brilliant.  Yet another tradition that officialdom wants to interfere with.  

And no-one expects the Spanish Inquisition!

Talking of cheese.

I'm at a family do at the weekend and last time I hit them with the Stinking Bishop.

Anyone got any recommendations (that are easy to purchase) for something with a similar chessiness ?

And I do feel a little weirder than usual asking this question on a hifi forum, but this is probably the best resourse.........

Beer

You're right, sell it at full price with a disclaimer on the wrapper "this product is designed to be eaten; the retailer accepts no responsibility should it be used for anything other than it's designated purpose."

And I'm not sure the cheese is wasted, I believe it usually survives the event and is then used for its designated purpose.

Double Gloucester?  Pah!

(I was "made" quite near Cheddar, so I might be a bit biased.  And don't confuse that stuff they sell in the supermarkets with real Zummerzet cheddar, preferably consumed ploughman's style with a couple of pints of proper cider - not scrumpy - to wash it down with).Beer :beer: party time! party time!

Ravey Gravey Davy - sorry for delay in replying.

Just fantastic thanks - I invested in some as you suggested and then made a mixed leaf salad (I made the dressing with some green pesto, thinned with some lemon infused olive oil and I also threw in some toasted pine nuts).  I also made some Soda bread to go with (came out really well too).

Perfect - any further cheese recommendations welcome at this time.

beauty, eh
