9. They bury it.

In 1666, English Naval Administrator and Member of Parliament Samuel Pepys was awoken by his servant, alerting him to a fire in the city of London. This was the beginnings of the Great Fire of London. Pepys began to dig holes, and bury his valuables…including wine and cheese. Props to the dog who found it whilst burying his bone!

8. They make it out of their own sweat.

Literally. Scientist Christina Agapakis and scent specialist Sissel Tolaas worked together to collect toe jam, belly button fuzz, among other (tears?) bodily bacterias, and used them to produce cheese. The results are on exhibit at the Science Gallery in Dublin. I don’t think we’re ready for this jelly.

7. They try to poison their families over it.

In May 2013, a North Carolina woman tried to poison five families for not sharing cheese with her. Can you blame her? (ok, maybe a little drastic)

6. They buy it all. All of it.

Tennis star Novak Djokovic has bought what is possibly the world’s entire supply of donkey cheese for 2013, according to the Daily Mail. Maybe this is the secret to his game?

5. They name their baby after it.

In 2013, the number of babies named“cheese” spiked 450% in the US. Seriously.

4. THEY MAKE IT OF GOLD AND EAT IT.

The Long Clawson Dairy in Leicestershire, UK has made a limited edition batch of Stilton, which is flecked with edible gold foil.

Roquefort…you’ve been usurped as the “king of cheese.”

3. They make it the center of a political battle.

Bush administration declared war on France’s prized Roquefort cheese by placing a 300% tariff on the fine cheese, essentially banning it from US shelves for a short amount of time. Why, you ask? It was in retaliation for the EU banning the import of US beef containing hormones. The tariff was lifted by the Obama administration. Thanks Obama.

2. They steal for it.

It’s been said that cheese is the most stolen food in the world. Recently, Veniamin Balika, 34, of Plainfield, Il was caught with more than $200,000 in stolen Wisconsin cheese. That’s more than 42,000 lbs.

1. They make love to it. (or with it?)

A philadelphia man got arrested for trying to get women to use a piece of swiss cheese to pleasure him. Makes you wonder…why not cream cheese?
