It's 'BRIE' N.A.
Boffins Identify Cheese Gene

A thing of the past? - a cheesemonger monging cheese in the traditional way and (inset) the gene P352
By our Chief Fromagier Sir Duke
JUBILANT scientists were last night celebrating after finally identifying the gene which determines whether or not a person likes cheese. Eggheads at the human genome project have spent years sifting through miles of DNAs, looking for the genes which make us partial to parmesan, crazy about camembert or hanker after half a pound of haloumi (a sort of Greek goat's cheese).
The gene, known as P352, is just an eigth of an inch long and is found in every cell of our bodies, according to Susan Intray, professor of genetics at Imperial College Rothbury.
Population
"Although this gene is present in everybody's DNA, it is switched off in 20% of the population," said Professor Intray. "So while the majority of people are genetically programmed to like cheese, approximately one person in five can take it or leave it."
Wallpaper
Scientists hope that in the next five to ten years they will be able to offer expectant mothers a test to determine whether or not their unborn children will have a liking for cheese. Professor Intray said: "It's a very exciting time. The cheese gene opens up the possibility of identifying other DNA markers, such as those determining a liking for Scotch eggs or vol au vents."
Bare
But her enthusiasm was not matched in Britain's cheesemonger community. "The scientists' argument, like some of our cheeses (such as Gouda and Emmental), is full of holes," stormed spokesman Peter Cable.
"Parents who don't particularly care for cheese will be able to choose not to go through with a pregnancy if they find they are carrying a child that would really like cheese. It's like 1984 all over again. This announcement is the thin end of a very large cheeseshaped wedge. Of cheese."
Tigre
Many cheesemongers believe they could face financial ruin if Professor Intray's pre-natal test becomes a reality: "All small shopkeepers are feeling the pinch," said Luton cheesemonger Frank Wainscotting. "I've been monging cheese for forty years. My father and grandfather monged cheese before me. Monging is all I know. If nobody wants cheese any more, I may have to start monging fish. Or iron."

No, credit where credit's due...

That's clever - especially for a viking.

+1 = 354

I'd pat him on the head but have you seen his horny helmet?  No fucking way.

It was probably Clyde's idea in the first place - it's just taken the rest of us this long to get it.

Oh, and 355.

Not my idea, but i have come up with lots of good ideas in my life time they say.

358  A person born now may live to that age if advancement of medical science progresses at the rate it did over the last 25 years.
