Those of you who follow Robert Scoble know that I won the award for best cheese at Scoble’s 40th birthday party this weekend. For those who just might be interested in duplicating such an envious feat, I thought I’d share a few secrets. These, then, are the five basic rules for winning a cheese contest:
You can comply with all of these rules with one simple, armchair method: fire up your web browser, and either google or MSN Search for Wisconsin artisanal cheese. Click on the first link that comes up, click on the “order now” graphic, select the smallest unit they’ll sell you (which happens to be a 2.5 lb, quarter wheel of the stuff), follow the prompts, enter the recipient’s home address and your credit card, and just sit back and watch the fireworks.
Now, isn’t that just too easy?
I should warn you, however. If you do follow that search link and go through the above instructions, you will end up with a “drop-dead,” “freaking awesome,” “knock your socks off” good cheese. And, on occasion, that might just have more to do with winning a cheese contest than adherence to any of the above rules.
