I am still recovering from this weekend when I was the laughing stock of the entire Mariposa County Cheese Rolling 'Rollapalooza'. I purchased this cheese "WHEEL" as a last minute replacement for my trusty 75 lbs Pecorino Wheel which got defaced by local youths. Still, I was looking forward to chasing a lighter "WHEEL" down the hill - this would give me more dynamic control over the direction of the roll. On the morning of the competition, imagine my distress when, dressed proudly in my regional colours and nearly-new cleats, I unwrapped the package to what turns out to be an OVAL-SHAPED cheese. This is NOT A WHEEL. Repeat: NOT A WHEEL. It is OVAL. Needless to say, you can imagine the rest (which was broadcast live on local TV AND one internet channel - note: the comments below the video are disgusting and defamatory). So why the two stars? As I bundled downhill behind the bouncing OVAL, arch-rivals roaring past in mirth, some chunks dislodged and the cheese itself was creamy and ripe. This is not a competition cheese. AVOID. If anyone wants it, I abandoned it in rage at the bottom of Greeley Hill, Mariposa County on Sunday afternoon (from the 49 North, take the 132 East). It should still be okay.

My dog Baxter ate the whole wheel of cheese before I could get to it. I'm not mad though. It was kind of amazing. I'll buy another one next paycheck.

Hi, there, Mr. Amazon. This is me, Hortence, from the Shady Grove Nursing Home? A few weeks ago I ordered a cheese from you?

Well, to tell you the truth, I've been hoping for quite a while that old Mr. Romano across the hall might be interested in getting better, well, acquainted, so I saved up for months (SSI only goes so far, you know, and medicare doesn't pay for all the things you might think it does)to buy your Sharp, Provocative and Piquant cheese (Whole Wheel) approximately 60 pounds, Shipping Weight: 65 pounds, ASIN: B0029XZAUQ as found on www.amazon.com, made from FRESH cow's milk, Product of Italy. I wanted to buy the Brunello di Monticello wine but I was afraid by the time I saved up for that, too, either me or Mr. Romano would be dead.

I also found that you can purchase an interesting array of feminine undergarments online but that will be a different product review, if you don't mind. I'll just say that the product descriptions definitely do not adequately explain those items. I almost asphyxiated in that push up bra but fortunately Madge was coming down the hall with her walker and saw me with The Girls shoved up over my nose, struggling to breathe, and she managed to pop the clasp. That sucker shot all the way down to the nurse's station. I think they are going to use it for Field Day next week. Something about having a melon slinging contest.

Oh, sorry, I got distracted. I was talking to you about the Provocative 60 pound cheese. Mr. Romano was clipping his nose hairs and I hated to interrupt him, being mostly blind he really needs to concentrate what with those scissors so close to his nose, but I was so excited about the Provocative Cheese that I couldn't wait to invite him to my room.

This should be called a 'cylinder' of cheese. Lasted two seconds on my Corolla and then the whole thing came apart on the highway.

Very frustrating. Did not come with manual and I can't find one online except something that seems to be Italian. Without instructions this is impossible to figure out. Would return along with the 5 gallon bottle of Chianti I bought to accompany it, but the shipping is so expensive it's more cost effective to put it in the back field as a cheese lick for the wild animals.

I was cut very badly while attempting to enjoy this cheese.

I advise that you extreme caution due to the sharp nature. Keep a first aid kit on hand while using this product.

It was very good quality though.

I purchased this as the last part that I needed for my organic motherboard which I'm using to power my time machine. First impressions the packaging is great and probably justifies the cost in itself. It is indeed sharp and I cut my finger while slotting it into place in the motherboard. I turned it on and I have to say it works a treat, started spinning and powered the time machine with conviction unmatched by cheaper brands. One niggle is that after about 20 minutes of continuous use it starts to overheat and becomes sticky, and gives off quite a pungent smell which is especially overpowering in small rooms.

After reading about the mammoth cheese event on Wikipedia, [...], I have been looking for some whey to stage a reenactment. If you are going to have a big wafer of cheese hanging around your house for two years, this is the one to get. I am wondering if I can get it engraved with the motto "Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God." I am still a little confused about how something round can also be sharp. I will have to ponder that one.
