back to article Facebook fuels Israeli cottage cheese insurgency

Facebook has once again been deployed in support of a Middle-Eastern insurgency, this time aimed at bringing down the tyrannical pricing of Israeli cottage cheese.

    Does Israeli Cottage Cheese

    produce some sort of dizzying high?

    The stuff you can buy over here is minging, and no one (barring a few dieters) would fuss at the price going up (I'm not the only person I know who finds it uncomfortably similar to baby vomit).

        Of all the comment titles I could imagine possibly finding cause to re-use, it *would* have to be this one.

      Cottage cheese's great for your sex life.

      Because people know, if you eat that you'll eat anything.

    Peace in our time

    I've been told in the past by Israelis that the Palestinians haven't cottoned on to the most important piece of leverage they have. If the Arab bagel shops in Jerusalem's old City were to restrict sales of their produce to Arabs only, Israel would immediately sue for peace. Not really much point to top notch cream cheese if you only have second rate bagels.

    Imports are USELESS!

    There is no point in importing cottage cheese to Israel. The foreign stuff has an entirely different consistency (too much whey and not enough curds). Given that cottage IS the national evening meal for kids up to the age of 10, this is a serious business.

    On the other hand, a cheap retailer today was selling cut-price cottage cheese.

      "Imports are useless"?

      Aye, and unlikely to be kosher.

    I suppose they couldn't find a pollie with his dick out.

    Surely they could do better than this in their efforts to avoid addressing the subject the WHOLE FUCKING WORLD wants them to.

    Does anyone remember the Vic Reeves & Bob Mortimer cottage cheese song?

    "There’s a type of cheese you don’t need a grater,

    you keep it in your refridgerator,

    it’s not really a cheese, it’s a residue,

    ah, but a residue that’s good for you."

      thats a cracker

      and surely the only time voodoo is mentioned in the same sentence as cottage cheese.

    Cottege cheese superior

    I'll have to try it so, coz cottege cheese is the lowest of the low cheese wise, just above easy singles.

      Oi you - lay off the individually wrapped cheese slices!

      My dog simply loves them. He won't touch cottage cheese though.

      I don't know if my hound is Kosher though as to date he hasn't mentioned his religious beliefs........but he can lick his own......does that make him a Baptist?
