Giant goat-cheese fire closes Norwegian roadway for six days
2013-01-23
Chuck Simmins posted this elsewhere, but it's a 'must see' item!
27 metric tons of flaming goat cheese burned inside a Norwegian road tunnel, closing nearly two miles of the road for six days. Brunost, a Norwegian cheese considered a delicacy, was being shipped in a truck that caught fire.

#14  The website describes Brunost as having a "slightly salty and surprisingly sweet flavor with a hint of goat about it."

Now we know why some middle-eastern folks think Norway is a great place to live.

#8  I might have to be neutral, wholly Swiss, in such a flame war to avoid a melt down.
