    How "cheesy" can you get? Great title!

    I can get pretty cheesy without much effort! :)

    Such a perfect title!
    If not for the repetition of "hole" imagery, I'd have thought a wedding band would feel more at home on a pile of Swiss Cheese. That's so much more akin to marriage, is it not? (lol)

    Jan Hoffman said (8 Jan 2008):

    Anita -- So funny; it is Swiss cheese; unfortunately it was domestic and the holes did not show on the slices remaining on hand. Great observation!
    --Best wishes, Jan

    Ha ha ha...irreverance and deconstruction of conventional forms worthy of a Frank Zappa etude. Great image and title Jan.

    This is so funny Jan as a WTF entry - got me overanalyzing it. What could cheese and wedding bands represent? In a good marriage, like a fine wine and an aged cheese. it grows better. In a bad one, it just becomes more smelly.

  • Jan Hoffman

    Jan Hoffman said (31 May 2008):

    Natalie -- Thanks for the Cheeses and Marry comment; I really roared on the smelly option; it never dawned on me that "holy" matrimony (the Swiss) had that potential -- but you are so right! Wonderful insight that you have.
    To this day I am not sure what I had in mind when I did this picture, other than the bad (possibly blasphemous) pun for a title.
    After 41 years of marriage, I cannot imagine how I would have survived without such a wonderful wife; I am blessed!
    --Best wishes, Jan

    This is so funny, and sotrue on many levels! From Natalie's fine wine-great cheese all the way down to the cheesies...

    I'm traversing the latter category now, what cheese/wine to choose for the inevitable rebirth?...


  • Jan Hoffman

    Jay El -- Just like a butterfly -- watch your wings when they are still wet.

    This is hilarious, love it and laughed over it. Reminds me of an old spoof in a magazine that referred to "cheeses of Nazareth". Great shot too.
