“What did the cheese say when it looked in the mirror?"/"Halloumi!”

A popular cheese joke is:

Q: What did the cheese say when it looked in the mirror?
A: Halloumi! (Hello me!)


The joke has been cited in print since at least 2009.


Wikipedia: Halloumi
Halloumi /həˈluːmi/ (Greek: χαλλούμι) or hellim (Turkish) (from Arabic: حلوم‎ ḥallūm [ħalˈluːm]) is a Cypriot semi-hard, unripened brined cheese made from a mixture of goat’s and sheep’s milk, and sometimes also cow’s milk. It has a high melting point and so can easily be fried or grilled. Halloumi is set with rennet and is unusual in that no acid or acid-producing bacterium is used in its preparation.

Halloumi is popular in the Levant, Greece and Turkey. It has recently become very popular in the United Kingdom.
