A somewhat unfortunate cheese choice for a lesbian perhaps

Ms. Bindel:

Let us regain some pride in one of our national treasures, and favour our British cheeses over their foreign counterparts. You may find yourself pleasantly surprised at how quickly you pass over the parmesan in favour of pantysgawn.

No, I do not believe that Our Julie has sufficient sense of humour to have made a joke.

  1. As a yank I’m not getting the joke either. I think it’s time to go to the old rail yards where I should be able to find it. Until then can someone clue me it?

  2. And here I hoped that the cheese had some mystical power I could use to my advantage in the future. I’ll just have to combine it with some of the mentioned red and I think I’ll be able to reproduce the effects claimed by the name like always…damn that isn’t PC is it?

    “You may find yourself pleasantly surprised at how quickly you pass over the parmesan in favour of pantysgawn.”

    Why in the ever living fuck would you do that unless for the sake of a cheap alliteration? One is a hard, granular, cows-milk cheese and the other is a soft goat cheese. You certainly couldn’t grate the latter over a plate of spag bol.

    Fuckwit.

  4. It makes my perinaeum swell with patriotic pride that we Brits still produce the best damn lezzers in the world.

    The Yanks can keep their Ellen Degenereses, their Rosie O’Donnell’s, and their Hillary Clintons. Sandi Tosksvig alone could take them all on, drunk or sober.

  5. Ted S,

    “I didn’t know Bindel was a xenophobic diversity-hater. Why does she hate non-UK cheeses?”

    I have a deep hatred of people who try and use food as a social weapon. 30-odd years ago, you were small-minded little Englander if you ate English cheese rather than some Camembert. Then the proles get it in Sainsbury’s and they switch to “we should be enjoying local British produce”.

    People like this deserve horrible diseases.

  6. As a person of Welsh origin I am appalled at her colonialist oppressive behaviour in using our beloved language for a cheap joke and getting it wrong by missing the “-“‘s as well

  7. Bloke in North Dorset

    As an Englishman wouldn’t it be a sin for me culturally appropriate Welsh cheese? Don’t have to stick to Dorset Blue Vinny?

  8. Philip Scott Thomas

    Sandi Tosksvig alone could take them all on, drunk or sober.

    Well, sure. She is, after all, the capo di tutti capi of the BBC’s Lesbian Mafia. Her caporegime is Clare ‘Dyke On a Bike’ Balding. Her consigliere is Alice Arnold. Susan Calman and Rhona Cameron are her soldati. Who could stand against that army?

  9. My limited knowledge of the noble Welsh language suggests

    pan = when
    ty = house
    gawn = can

    but what sgawn is, neither I nor Y Geiriadur Mawr can help

  10. Pant=hollow
    So it should be pant-ysgawn or possibly pant-ys-gawn and is presumably the name of the originating farm. Not sure on the second part possibly a name that doesn’t translate directly so Ysgawn Hollow farm
    Tricky language Welsh

    Erm … isn’t Sandi a Scandi?
