cheese lets you know what size of phone you want before buying

Im thinking of upgrading from a smartphone to a gigantic phone, aka a "phablet" but i wish to find one that is both large and pocketable. many sites list the weight and dimensions of these phones, but I and I think many others have difficulty envisioning what 110x 80 x 11 mms or 190 grams might feel like in ones pocket.

My solution to this problem would be a site that gives you printable full-scale templates of current phablet that you could print out and tape together. You would then affix the template to a large block of cheddar (or any cheese that is relatively hard) , and then cut out a block with the exact size, (and similar weight to the real phone you are thinking about buying.

At this point you would have a phone shaped block of cheese that you would be free to put in your pocket, and walk around with for a few days to test for comfort.

Just thinking about a phablet sized block of cheese makes me cheddar.

Uh-oh. Now you've gone and started off a round of cheese-puns. No gouda will come of it.

Brieth Max, it will all be okay

Well, when it comes to cheese puns, the Leicester better.

I just camembert it

Stiltons of cheese puns to come, I expect.

What would Cheeses say?

He'd probably say this was a feta compli.

Is that a block of Gorgonzola in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? Or are you incontinent?

These jokes are aged, not too sharp. I like the puns that go whey over your headcheese, these are kind of lacy and full of holes. Maybe if we smoked them they would ticklemore.

Umm, cheese? Have you not heard of wood? Or cardboard? I'm not sure cheese would be strong enough to accurately give the "feel" of a phone in your pocket (either too soft and flexible, or too brittle).

The density of a mobile phone is about 2g/cm³, while the density of cheese is about 1g/cm³. Modeling clay probably has a density closer to a mobile phone.

Alternatively, you could just use the phone as a giant belt buckle.
