A Seattle suburb has "banned cheese" in advance of Sunday's NFC Championship game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers. In response to this assault on food, one man bravely spoke out: "They should never ban cheese." Amen, brother.
An executive order was sent out on Wednesday by Douglas Schulze, the city manager of Bainbridge Island near Seattle, explaining that staff in city hall on the island were not permitted to bring in, eat, or share in the dairy delicacy because Packers' fans are "frequently seen wearing obnoxious wedge-shaped foam hats painted yellow." From Schulze's order:
Section 3. Due to the relationship between the Green Bay Packers, their fans, and cheese, the possession of and/or consumption of cheese or cheese flavored products shall be banned in Bainbridge Island, City Hall on January 16, 2015.
One man added: "That's like banning the Packers!," which would be hard to ban if the Seahawks actually wanted to advance to the next round in the football tournament. They'd have no one to play, friend.
"Hopefully we can ban the Seahawks from the Super Bowl." SHOTS FIRED, BAINBRIDGE ISLAND.
Go teams. Eat all the cheese you want.
