You have to name at least 15 cheeses in 30 seconds to graduate high school in Wisconsin.

She made Wisconsin proud

If there’s one thing people in Wisconsin know it’s cheese. 

One of the in-game entertainment segments the Bucks are running this year pits fans against players in a contest to name as many varieties of cheese in 30 seconds. The woman in the video above set a mark that I don’t think can be passed. 

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, her name is Jamie Kiesl and she felt pressured to be on top of her game after learning right before the camera went on that one of the players named 24 cheeses in their pre-recorded segment. (I bet it was Donte DiVincenzo ripping off the names of two dozen different Italian cheeses.)

But Kiesl named a whopping 27 cheeses in just 30 seconds, which would have been good enough to beat any player and certainly put Sterling Brown’s 17 to shame.

Kiesl told the Journal Sentinel that she has lived in Wisconsin her whole life (in case that wasn’t clear from her pronunciation of “goat”). Asked how she was able to name so many cheeses Kiesl posited, “Desserts? I’m a big dessert fan.”

I have questions about liquor stores in Louisiana

Every state in America has its own occasionally bizarre laws about when and where you can buy alcohol. In New York, you can’t buy beer at the same store where you buy wine and liquor. In Connecticut, you can’t buy alcohol after 8 p.m. Rhode Island and Missouri allow bars in certain cities to stay open later than in the rest of the state. 

In Louisiana, liquor stores apparently sell flip phones to use in a touchdown celebration. 

What a country.

When I first saw a clip of this I assumed it was an onside kick attempt. It’s so much more baffling now that I know it wasn’t.
