Conversation that presumably took place between the planner and the caterer of a thing I was at recently.

- So, you want six trays of sandwiches, four of hors d'oeuvre, and four of fruit.
- Yes. Oh, and let's have one of cheese and biscuits as well.
- ...Ok. Some cheese, and some biscuits.
- ....Some cheese and biscuits, yes.
- ...How do you mean?
- Well, you know. A tray of cheese and biscuits.
- ...What, all on one tray?
- ...Yes.
- Together?
- Yes!
- Ok! You're the boss!

I had some cheddar on a digestive. It was perfectly nice.

Don't go to Yorkshire then if you don't like this cheese and "biscuits" offering. They serve Cheese with fruit cake especially at Christmas! Don't really like either so find this combination doubly disturbing.

I think you'll find that a good slab of cheese improves almost any other foodstuff. It’s like a universal constant.
I'm sure the first person to melt cheese onto top of a perfectly edible cauliflower was stoned out of the village.
