i_want_a_new_drug_281x211.jpgToday’s semi-amazing factoid that may be true, via Popbitch: “Huey Lewis’s grandfather invented the red wax sealant you find on certain cheeses.” First person to make the “cheesy music” joke in comments gets banned! [Popbitch]

    What kind of muensters do you think we are?

    So that’s where the modern day hipsters are getting their style inspiration these days!

    i’m just glad that this post has inaugurated our long-overdue ‘cheese’ tag.

    Since we can’t make jokes using red or sealant, it looks like we are all out, then.

    We need some kind of encyclopedia for musicians ancestors and their inventions, like Michael Nesmith’s mom inventing liquid paper.

    @Maura Johnston: But to ensure quality said tag should have been feta tested first.

    One that won’t make my gouda
    Turn into some goo
    One that makes my cheese smell
    Like something besides poo

    Say what you will about Huey Lewis, but I had a gouda time listening to “Sports” when I was a kid.

    @El-Zilcho: Hell, I havarti listened to it this week! On cassette!

    I hope I’m not provolone in thinking that he’s about due for an ironic hipster comeback, a la Hall & Oates.
