This post was inspired by Simone (yes, I’m making her take all the blame). She wrote that in Spanish, women say “¡está como un queso!” when they’re drooling over a Beautiful Man. Immediately I thought of the infamous LOLCAT meme and its strange accompanying language.
In my version of LOLCAT, “cheez” has multiple meanings surrounding the two major semantic fields of “cheese” and “sexy man.” I’m not sure whether it works in other languages. We’re about to find out!
Yes, Jean, but…
What about Spanish?
And I couldn’t resist this one:
There is such a thing as cheez overload, but it’s rare.
Usually a kitteh can never get enough cheez.
Men, however can consume way too much cheese…
I couldn’t leave out German. I am told that in Germany, the pairing of mustard with foods is an art. The most crucial pairing is mustard with sausage. Ahem.
The production of “The Crucible” at the Old Vic has been enlivened with a very tasty hunk o’ cheez…
But we all have our favorites, don’t we?
Some of us are quite fierce when it comes to securing our cheez supply.
Others have a more laid-back attitude.
Like any slang term, “cheez” can be used to mean different, but related things…
Some men have too much cheez for their own good. Not that I’m complaining.
It’s no surprise, really, that cheez has conquered the world!
