Cheese War

Sometime in the late 90s the Washington Post ran an odd story about cheese preferences in the District of Columbia and its environs, specifically contrasting brie and Velveeta. It broke down along all kinds of ethnic and economic lines based on some kind of complex poll, and I never figured out why they did it. Except it was interesting to read, so I drew this thing. Me, I've eaten about as much Velveeta as brie, though my preference remains Havarti or Swiss. I post this for anyone's benefit who needs a cheese joke today, and especially for Mr. Chris Sparks, who's an actual cheesemonger.

Not relevant to this post, but I wanted to announce that feral Alice is now my Blackberry wallpaper. Applaud at will.

Oops, missed the updated post. Cheese, glorious cheese! A stunning homage to nature's perfect food. Or, perhaps, just something that goes really well on burgers.
