Cheese Factory’s Existence Threatened By Catch-22
A cheese factory’s founders are currently wishing that started up “any other business” after being shut down by the Health Inspector this week.
“We have been shut down because we have a mouse problem,” says founder of Charlie’s Cheese Co., Charles Clarke. “We’ve put traps everywhere, but they don’t go for the small bits of cheese on them because there are whole wheels of the stuff about two-metres away.”
Charles Clarke’s grandfather, Chris, and an unknown associate with their first release of cheese in 1897.
“It’s a catch-22, we can’t sell the cheese because of the mice, but we can’t get rid of the mice because of the cheese. I think you can see the problem.”
“Why couldn’t my great grandfather have started a sunglasses factory back in 1897?!” said an exasperated Clarke, explaining that “mice rarely wear sunglasses.”
The factory’s operations have been put on hold by until further notice by an angry Health Inspector after they tried selling their cheddar as ‘Jarlsberg’ following the infestation.
