The first Swiss cheese was manufactured at Los Alamos during World War 2 as part of a failed experiment to contain early nuclear blasts. Dr. Werner Oppenkloze left his lunch, which included a block of American cheese, on one of the mini-reactors. After the experiment when the forgotten cheese was discovered scientists noticed unusual wormhole like pathways. Dr. Oppenkloze died four days later after sampling his new food invention.
During the 1960’s Swiss cheese was often used as a musical instrument akin to the toy recorder. Instrumentalists would work the holes with their fingers while simultaneously blowing into the largest hole and eating the instrument itself as they played. Janis Joplin was known to go through several “swissies” per concert, ending the gig with a big belch.
Modern Cosmologists known as String Theorists often use a specially made Swiss cheese produced in New Old Lompoc, California to model N-dimensional SO(32) non-Abelian theories in 11 dimensional subspace. They also use it to make fart sounds when the Loop Quantum Gravity folks aren’t around.
Entrepreneurial weavers on the small Pacific island nation of Tuvalu have perfected a method of creating fully formed tube socks by weaving yarn through hardened blocks of Swiss cheese. Unfortunately tube socks went out of fashion decades ago so they haven’t made a dime yet. They remain hopeful that an angel investor will swoop in and take nearly three million socks off their hands and sell them wholesale at markets around the Pacific.
