They don't call Wisconsinites "cheeseheads" for nothing. The state produces over three billion pounds of cheese per year, and being around so much of that dairy goodness eventually seeps into local citizens' brains in a way other people will never understand. In early November, at a Milwaukee Bucks basketball game, one woman dazzled the crowd and won an audience challenge by naming 27 different kinds of cheese in only 30 seconds!



The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel asked the woman, identified as Jamie Kiesl, how she managed to accomplish such an impressive feat.

She offered a perfect explanation:

"I've lived in Wisconsin my whole life."


Kiesl added even more mystique to her victory by holding a child and wearing a cheese-wedge hat as she named every cheese from gorgonzola to mascarpone.



While it's amusing to poke fun at Wisconsinites and their dairy, the truth is that the state produces 26% of the nation's cheese annually. According to Munchies, the badger state accounts for "over one billion pounds of mozzarella, almost 666 million pounds of processed cheese, and 86 million pounds of feta per year."


Twitter was floored by Kiesl's cheese prowess!




Some, however, thought her score was inflated by the inclusion of cheese categories instead of actual varieties:


It's hard to imagine any cheeses she didn't get to, but the list does seem truly endless!




Congratulations, Ms. Kiesl, on your mastery of the cheeses. Watching your challenge would impress even the Monty Python crew!

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"
