What a Muenster!

Illinois driver, accused of stealing 21 tons of Wisconsin cheese, is arrested in New Jersey
CASHTON, Wis. – An Illinois man accused of stealing 21 tons of Wisconsin cheese has been arrested in New Jersey.

New Jersey authorities say the 34-year-old man from Plainfield, Ill., was arrested Tuesday afternoon.

New Jersey State Police Lt. Stephen Jones said Wednesday the man was driving a refrigerated truck carrying 42,000 pounds of Muenster cheese. Jones says the cheese company, K&K Cheese in Cashton, Wis., valued the cargo at $200,000.

I have to say, I've never read a headline like that before. You have to wonder if that man was trying to supply a cottage industry. Or maybe he was just stringing people along. Perhaps he forgot to get parmesan to take the cheese? Let's hope this isn't the start of a major crime brie. I hope he's feeling blue about his crimes.

In any case, you know no gouda can come of smuggling.

That is all.

This kind of criminal stupidity grates on me no matter how you try and slice it.

I think this is appropriate, especially given Jenn's comment.

It doesn't say where he stole the cheese so I have no idea Havarti got after stealing it. O queso that isn't much of a crime so you can't say edam-an. However, I suspect it was a Swiss ride to jail and he won't brie back too quickly.
