After work today (summer hours, yeah!) I went to the Lunds in NE Minny to pick up a few groceries. Little did I know I was there in time for a ceremonial cheese delivery!
The Beemster Graskaas cheese wheels were carried in on special beams strapped on to two guys each. They parked it by the popular little Beemster cow that all the kids try to climb on!
Now the subject line comes from a 90s commercial for Real California Cheese, and I'm sorry if you found this blarg entry hoping to find it. I can't find it either! It drives me nuts! Here's how it goes:
Two California border patrol guys have stopped a Wisconsin family in a station wagon, asking their purpose for entering the state. They say things such as, 'Uh, Golden Gate?' and are let go. One agent turns to the other and asks, 'They here for the cheese?' and the other agent says in a heavy Wisconsin accent, 'Oh, you betcha!'
Now why am I obsessed with it? The guy who said, 'Oh, you betcha!' was Korean American! My college roommate, Kim, is half-Korean, half-Cheesehead, so we'd be rolling on the floor from the advert. And who was the guy? Daniel Dae-Kim! So if you have a video clip, an image from it, or anything, please let me know! I keep telling the locals here about it and they don't believe me!!!
