Madame Fromage: Haunted by Handkäse
Madame Fromage has discovered a new stinky cheese called "Handkäse," but she can't tell if it's good or bad...:
Readers, you know how I feel about stinky cheese. I always welcome it into my home. That is why there is a funeral-sized incense burner in my living room. Alas, my last Stinky Cheese Mission went awry, and I am still puzzling over it. Did I eat a bad piece of cheese, or is Handkäse really and truly intolerable?
The tip came from a reader who heard about Handkäse during a German conversation class in New Jersey. She asked if I knew of it, then sent me instructions on how to find it. “My German teacher calls it Handkase mit musik,” she wrote. “The musik comes afterward.”
Okay. I like a fart joke. I’ll eat a farty cheese.
