“How do you handle a dangerous cheese?"/"Caerphilly.”

Caerphilly cheese originates in the town of Caerphilly in Wales. The cheese has been the subject of some obvious puns, such as this one in 1994:

Q: How do Welsh people eat cheese?
A: Caerphilly.


“How do you handle dangerous cheese? ... Caerphilly” was cited on Twitter on January 14, 2010.


Wikipedia: Caerphilly cheese
Caerphilly is a hard, white cheese that originates in the area around the town of Caerphilly in Wales, although it is now also made in England, particularly in the South West and on the English border with Wales. It was not originally made in Caerphilly, but was sold at the market there, hence taking the town’s name.

Caerphilly is a light-coloured (almost white), crumbly cheese made from cow’s milk, and generally has a fat content of around 48%. It has a mild taste, with its most noticeable feature being a not unpleasant slightly sour tang.
