The French are known to produce some of the smelliest, most intense cheeses in the world. From the mildly offensive Roquefort to the bus-banned Epoisses, French cheeses are among the stinkiest and oft-times most tasty. Unfortunately, the latest attempt at funk has proved fatal.
Three people have died and five more were injured at the unveiling ceremony for Normandy’s newest stinky cheese, Chausettes de Fesses (translation: socks of buttocks).
“It was not the reaction I was expecting,” explained local dairy farmer Marcel Vachequirit. “The cheese is beautiful, perhaps my finest ever cheese, and yes – I admit – it does have quite a tang, but the mortality rate so far is astonishing.”
