    That’s remarkably like the way Spouse and I are living. Unfortunately, we (well she) seem unable to leave the TeeVee off which undoes a lot of the good…

    If I ate a whole bucket of cheese, I’d throw up beer.

    A shot of gin followed by a Blue Nile would ease the cheese to go down.

    I just had fried cheese curds OUT OF A BUCKET that staff brought in for lunch yesterday. To steal from Tim Hawkins, “It was like eating baby angels.”

    You’re both right. Cheese comes in buckets, and beer makes that whole scenario complete.

    I’m with Pig, but I agree with Rat. A bucket of bottles of good beer/ale/stout would good well with that bucket of cheese.

    Why is the cheese that is up against the bucket flat? If it was a slice of cheese, it would bend and be flexible. Id say to blame the cartoonist, but maybe pigs cheese is expired, or maybe just a weird kind of cheese you would find at whole foods.

    Didn’t know Swiss cheese came in buckets, but I wouldn’t be surprised soft cheeses did. After all, they can be sold in crocks or small jars.

    I Froogled, and ding bust:

    24 oz. Plastic Cheese Curd Bucket with Handle – 200/Case   $92.99.

    Imported Feta Cheese – By Bakers Authority   $80.00.   10 lb Pail

    Or if you don’t plan to eat it yourself:   Cheese Trimmings   $26.Catfish bait for hoop nets, traps and trot lines. 100% trimmings – no water added. The reusable 5 gal. pails hold 40 lbs. of …

    all on the first screen.   I read no further.

    And, of course, you could have a deli slice a horn of cheese into a bucket.

    Beer, too, is good, Rat. But that cheese needs ice to keep it palatable!
