madmonkey: wage0048: forresttriax: then they came and took our havarti and there was no one to help us

Then they came for our Bleu, our Provalone, our Cheddar, and our American cheeses.

American cheese? They can have it... I think i would rather eat Mexican bathtub cheese...

Pasteurized processed "cheese" food my ass...


I was just naming off different cheeses. I would much rather have a slice of provalone or Swiss on a sandwich or burger than American.

I am quite fond of Muenster (spelling?), ramano, feta, parmisan, mozzerela, etc. (But not ricotta)

mmm...deep fried provalone, bacon, cheddar cheese, and a 1/2 pound slab of grilled angus beef.

Must be Friday('s)

Yuck, that's in Vitamin Water?

I always wonder when i see a picture like this -
did they just throw some kind of cardboard spacer in the tub over the models lower half so they only have to use like 3 or 4 bags of cheetos (thin layer, evenely spread), or did they just say "screw it" and buy 2 cases at costco and fill up the whole tub.
 
2008-06-06 05:10:57 PM  
Where do they bathe?

I want to know how the chick explains to her man why her snatch smells like cheetos for the next couple of weeks.

My guess, he doesn't even notice a change.

Tommy: You shouldn't drink that stuff anyway.[looking at the milk Turkish is drinking]
Turkish: Why, what's wrong with it?
Tommy: It's not in sync with evolution.
Turkish: Shut up.
Tommy: Cows have only been domesticated for the last eight thousand years. Before that, they were running around mad as lorries. The human digestive system hasn't got used to dairy products yet.
Turkish: Well fark me Tommy. What have you been reading?
Tommy: Let me do you a favour. [takes the milk off Turkish's hand and throws it out the window and it hits a car behind them followed by screeching tires and a loud crash]
Both:[Look at each other] Whoops.

I see two separate stories here. The first is that cheeses made using unpasteurized cow milk that are infected with M.Bovis TB is bad.

Now that's bad. That means that cheese is coming illegally from Mexico that is unpasteurized and could be infected. That's relevant to me, because I live 45 minutes from the border. I won't be eating cheese from any of the local Meximart's anytime soon. And the Alberto's? I am all about the $3.50 burritos that kick the crap out of the stuff you get at Taco Hell, but I think I'll take a break for a while. I don't want TB.

The second story, that is also relevant is that people back cheese in their bathtub's. Ewww. Farking Ewwww. Damn, I do not want pubes in my cheese.

Still not as bad as those Mexican Cheetos, aka Sabor de Soledad.

MissFarksAlot: Marvin the Paranoid Gamer: Trojan_Whore: Wow, I'd never heard the term "bathtub cheese" before... but the mental imagery is fascinating!

The whole "bathtub ______" thing does that with just about any food product.

bathtub yogurt
bathtub sausages
bathtub raisins

My god, you're right!


Oh, c'mon. Everybody's played "bathtub sausage."

septic_mouth: If the mexicans would just use the tub to BATHE in.

Yeah, too bad we can't just wash them in kerosene just like in the old days, eh? Maybe you'd like to have them use

I'm... not entirely sure what it is you actually do.

That said, it involves an intimate knowledge of bathroom cheeses and how they're made, so I'm guessing it's a rather important vocation!

Nobody outside this field really knows what it is I do. But I learned it at USC.


are you that guy that sits in the booth that takes my money and tells me where I can park on campus when I come to see my daughter play water polo?

troppo gonzo: Cheese is a food made from milk, usually of cows, buffalos, goats, or sheep, by coagulation. The milk is acidified, typically with a bacterial culture, then the addition of the enzyme rennet or a substitute (e.g. acetic acid or vinegar) causes coagulation, to give "curds and whey".[1] Some cheeses also have molds, either on the outer rind (similar to a fruit peel) or throughout.

What is your obsession with the Culinary Institute girl?

Infernal Wedgie: On the bright side, they're being literal about it. I've got photos of bathtubs full of queso blanco. Inspectors did some raids and stuff.

vernonFL, yeah you can make ricotta at home, butmost folks use pasteurized milk to do it. These folks just milk the cows and goats in their yards and bypass that process.

/unpasteurized milk: from the cow's ass straight to your glass!


I think you are doing it wrong.
