|Shhh, or they’ll all want some|
DENVER – Enormously talented film and motion picture actor, Edward Norton has long had a reputation for eccentricity, but yesterday he announced that he was as normal as the next man and to prove it unveiled a new cheese he had invented: Chedward Nortshire.
‘I was sitting in my private jet waiting to get clearance to take off and fly to Hawaii and I thought to myself, I just want to give something back to the ordinary people,’ said the Birdman, 25th Hour and Red Dragon star. ‘But what? And then it came to me. They like cheese.’
Of course my first worry was mice. I mean what if the cheese was so nice that the mice wouldn’t be able to resist. They’d be all over the cheese, and people would buy cats or try to kill the mice and although understandable that would NOT be cool. But then cheese and mouse expert Bryan Singer told me that the idea that mice go crazy about cheese was actually a racist myth.
Our resident cheese taster Xavier Poulis had a slice of Chedward and gave his verdict:
Stings the mouth. Holds. Still there. Gummy glue feeling about the teeth. Tacky. Yes gone.
Coincidentally these were the exact words Roger Ebert used in his review of Edward Norton’s performance in the Italian Job remake.
