"I didn't know that brown cheese burns so well," said Kjell Bjoern Vinje at the Norwegian Public Roads Administration.

A Norwegian delicacy? Oh, come on. That's like calling peanut butter an American delicacy. It's just stuff that you eat.

On the contrary, I grew up with it. To this day I have to make a mental adjustment when people say goat cheese and they're not talking about Ekte Geitost. (Feta? Whazzat?) That's why I cavil at the "delicacy" description.

I admit it would never have occurred to me to try to light it on fire :)

When the Norwegian father of a friend of mine took some home to his British wife she stored it under the kitchen sink because she thought it was a type of soap!

Mm, nice. Leave it there for a year or so and you'll have gammalost.
