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 Sentinelasked 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!

Every family has a black sheep or every family in its entirety are black sheep.

What is a "black sheep" anyway?

It used to mean a person who brought shame or embarrassment to a family, but it's more often used now to mean the member who is just very different from everyone else—sometimes in a good way.
