Alzheimer's Cheese Block

warning - not in good taste, but tastes good on toast!

Alzheimer's Cheese Block is a large piece of cheese that has been manufactured in the shape of a human brain. When you slice into it, irregular holes are revealed (similar to those found in Swiss Cheese)

       Nice idea - wrong disease.   

       You're thinking of CJD - a spongiform encephalopathy. Alzheimer's is characterised by a general shrinkage of the brain and, on a microscopic scale, the formation of protein aggregates.

       I'll throw in walnut grains to represent the protein aggregates.

       yeah, i'll second the mfd: unspecified but obvious, it still touches on "gross out humour" though it's not funny, and "cruelty" in the form of mockery.   

       You could start up a "Straight to MFD" list post, if you can't think of any other outlet for sour brain-drizzle.

       On reflection, I have decided to keep it. [FlyingToaster] Your version can have no diseases, blue Stilton for the cerebellum, and an avocado for the basal ganglia.

       What [MB] said.   

       In Brie-f, an ideal opportunity for yet more cheese puns. [+].

       I had a gouda one too... but I forget.

       Anyone who revives the cheese-pun phenomenon ought to go and crawl under a rock. I've got a roquefort you both right here.

       How'bout Dysentery Soup: onion soup, served in a bedpan:   

       or Anne Frank Chicken Poppers: purposefully and systematically tortured and starved chicks, served char-broiled. Yumyum !   

       Ebola Steak ? divots taken out of a cut and removed, the edges then charred, served raw and bleeding.   

       Nigger Nuggets for deep fried oxen-testicles ?   

       ----   

       A cheese shaped like a brain has some entertainment value; one made specifically to mock people with a debilitating terminal illness that robs them of their essence before killing them, not so much, I'm thinking.   

       But hey, maybe it's just me.

       /You're thinking of CJD - a spongiform encephalopathy. Alzheimer's is characterised by a general shrinkage of the brain /   

       My guess is that eating a CJD brain raw would give you the disease. Does an Alzheimer's brain also transmit a disease if eaten raw ? (Cow or pig brains for the non cannibals.)

       I really shouldn't be contributing to this, but, the pun you're looking for, is it Mozzarellabellum?   

       I'm bettin it's Mozzarellabellum.   

       ...bummer   

       //My guess is that eating a CJD brain raw would give you the disease. Does an Alzheimer's brain also transmit a disease if eaten raw ?//   

       Yes. It's called Kuru. It became endemic in a population which ritually ate their dead. (This was likely CJD rather than Alzheimer's, but the diagnosis is one of scale - apparently a proportion of Alzheimer's patients are really CJD.)   

       Incidentally, cooking doesn't prevent transmission of CJD. Even *autoclaving* wouldn't.
Loris, Jun 30 2014
  

       Notwithstanding the egregious error of confusing CJD with Alzheimer's, this idea still raises to our consciousness the massive public benefit that would arise from every cheese vendor also having a mini-CNC machine which would be used to tool a lump of cheese into the shape of the purchaser's head.
hippo, Jun 30 2014
  

       And the beauty of it is the cheese swarf produced by the cheese CNC machine can be recycled in the nearby molten-cheese 3D printer.
hippo, Jun 30 2014
  

       Edible swarf, mmmmm ...
