Vermonters Mount Impassioned (Online) Defense Of State Cheese

by

Yesterday, a pithy post appeared on Jezebel.com pointing out that Vermonters have more cats per capita than any other U.S. state. But as the post wends its way around social media, it's not comments about felines, but rather cheese, that is riling the 802 rank and file. Specifically, this line:

"Vermont's previous accomplishments include the production of not-as-good-as-Wisconsin cheese and Brigham Young."

The writer, Madeleine Davies, might as well have fired a cannon over Cabot's bow. In the fiery comments section, Vermonters of all stripes have sprung to their state's defense. Some highlights:

"I stopped paying attention to your poorly cited article after you erroneously claimed that Vermont has inferior cheese." —chrisfromvt

"Wisconsin cheese is an unnatural shade of orange and tastes like old Green Bay Packer sweat." –grim

"Wisconsin may make the most cheddar type cheese, but that does not make it better. I had a huge response to your ignorant claim but have decided to let it go." —Vermonster

"What? Wisconsin cheese is DYED ORANGE." —vermontcheeseeeeee

"THE GREAT STATE OF VERMONT WILL NOT APOLOGIZE FOR ITS CHEESE." —backwoods_aristocrat

Some commenters have opted for more direct observation: "Your cat image has 2 dog infiltrators." —erika

You can add to the fray here.
