Olympic Spirit Visits U.S. as Banquo-et of Cheese

Results Are In!
From The American Cheese Society Competition

What did Olympic athletes do before whey powder and Super-Extra-Powerful-Trinitroglycerine Protein Bars? They ate cheese. Lots of it, and “straight out of the basket” (Pausanias). They might have come up with democracy even faster if they were eating cheeses as good as what we have today. Here are some of the 2012 competition results, fresh from Raleigh, North Carolina:

And as for husbandry on earth, we’ve clearly got a lot to be proud of in this country.
