Writing about cheese is fun and I think more of you should try it.

That’s why I’m sponsoring a Cheese Limerick Contest. The winner gets an autographed copy (by all 12 cheesemakers) of the 2011 Portrait of a Wisconsin Artisan Cheesemaker. If that’s not enough to inspire you, then this cheese limerick by Christine Perfetti should:

There once was a woman from Oregon,
who really liked eating her parmesan.
She said with much glee,
“I’m in love with my cheese.”
And her friends thought,”oh what a moron.”
Here are the rules:
1. Write a cheese limerick.
2. Email it to me with your mailing address before 5 p.m. on Dec. 16.
3. A bunch of my friends will sit around my dining room table, eating cheese, drinking the leftover sake in my fridge from my cheese festival, and pick the winner.
4. I will then mail the winner the super cool autographed calendar, but probably wait until the next morning when I’m sober so I don’t send it to Siberia.
See, wasn’t that easy?
Oh yeah, the winning entry will also be published on this blog. So send me some good cheese limericks, people!

  1. What a cool idea for a contest. Hope you get a lot of entries. (Actually, I hope you get a lot of entries that aren't quite as good as mine so I'll win.)

  2. While I already have the calendar, alas, it is unsigned …. therefore, I'm in! Truly, a fabulous idea of something to do while sitting by the fireplace keeping warm.

  3. What a fun idea. It's nice to meet another cheese whore 😀

    I think I have cheese at least twice a day – love it!
