Exotic Cheese Club

Why stop at cows and goats?

We've all heard of those specialty shops and "of-the-month" clubs that provide the discerning and adventurous consumer with meats beyond what you'd normally find in a local grocer. Kangaroo? Rattlesnake? We got 'em all.

But why stop there?

I propose a cheese-of-the-month club and catalog (an actual store would probably not be feasible for the small demand I anticipate) that specializes in cheeses made from the milk of exotic mammals. Think of it: March could come in like a sharp lion cheddar, and in January you could remind yourself that the ocean is even colder than where you are now with a nice killer whale gruyere.

Milk would be harvested in cooperation with local zoos and water parks, many of which already supplement their babies' natural nursing with a fortified formula.

       I'd try it. Only problem is who's going to milk the lion? A better man than I, I say! Buy that man a drink, for he has no arms to reach for his wallet anymore!

       "Venezuelan Beaver Cheese, perchance?"

       there are enough exotic cheeses just visit a real cheese shop, besides sheep milk cheese exists.
engineer1, Jun 11 2004

       Ha! Depends where you are Tabs. I think that the Inuits would be most surprised to see a flock of sheep wandering across the ice and there probably aren't too many of them in the Amazon rainforests either.
DrBob, Jun 11 2004

       True sheep aren't exotic, i go for dog's milk cheese should last for ever...
engineer1, Jun 11 2004

       //Even human cheese?//   

       I don't know how strange this could be for most people. It is for me! Here in México pig cheese and goat cheese are very common. I don't know if I'd dare to try whale cheese... or dog cheese! Ew! Still, I'm sure other people would. Great idea! A good croissant with melted cheese for you.
Pericles, Jun 11 2004

       excellent suggestion [angel], first cheese that came into my head too.
jonthegeologist, Jun 11 2004

       I did once find a link for human cheese, but I can't seem to relocate it.
DrCurry, Jun 11 2004

       I went to this one place but they were all cleaned out of cheese before I got there. It ticked me off. +

       "Not much of a cheese shop, is it?"

gnomethang, Jun 12 2004

       The only human cheese that I heard of was from males...
Ling, Jun 12 2004

       //a nice killer whale gruyere//? Only if you know how to milk a whale.
echo, Jun 12 2004

       Mmmm kangaroo cheese. Puts a spring in your step.
Marsupials make milk right?

       Mmmm, link.
skinflaps, Jun 08 2007

       *er.... I think many would prefer lionESS cheese... but that's just an assumption on my part.

       Boy did I misinterpret this title and description!!!

       I have no valid reason for shuddering at the thought of this but I am. Damn my cultural conditioning!

       You should phrase your pronouncements more Caerphilly …

       No more cheese puns, we're cheddar off without them.

       Gouda thinking. Brie-f and to the point.

       Edam well ought to know better.
DrBob, Aug 23 2012

       There's stiltons of puns waiting to be sniffed out here, unless you are all board already?

       As Sherlock Holmes might say, "Emmental, my dear Watson."

       Cheese puns are brieneath me.

       <BZZZZZZT> Challenge, repetition. We've already had Brie once.

       That's briezy for you to say, Jack.
normzone, Aug 23 2012

       There's nothing butter than mouse cheese.
Worldgineer, Aug 23 2012

       //Challenge, repetition.// Damn. I gouda seen that coming.   

MaxwellBuchanan, Aug 23 2012

       Tread Caerphilly, MB. It might help you get rind the Borg...
