Hmm, when I put my full first name in I'm:

...Roquefort, the King of Cheeses!

But as Danapoppa I'm:

...Mozarella, commonly known as pizza cheese.

Call me King Pizza!

Ok - maybe I'm going nuts or something - but none of this thread makes any sense to me! Is there some crucial piece of information I'm missing?

Could someone please explain to me this cheese business?

OK, so when I enter my first name, I'm a traditional Iraqi cheese that matures in a sheepskin bag for between 6 and 12 months (Meira). When I enter my last name, I'm a slightly grainy Swiss cheese with a hard dry brown rind (Gruyere), when I enter both I'm a soft blue cheese from Italy that melts in the mouth like ice cream (Dolcelatte). My handle here yields the same result, while my other and more widely used handle makes me an Old English, orange colored, firm, full cream cheese with a rich, buttery taste and a hard rind (Double Gloucester).

So which one is it??? I guess statistically I could settle for being a Dolcelatte... not that I've tried any of these cheeses at all. (The Meira sounds rather tasty, though. :) And I'd sure like to know what crazy system lies behind these results.

Hey, Swedish geek! Howdy! Where abouts is Haninge? Did you have a happy Valborgs this year?

I'm EmMENTAL cheese! How'd they know? Tee-hee. Seriously, I'm a Jarlsberg type cheese: Nutty and Sweet. I feel pretty. At least I'm not a stinky cheese! I only checked my first name, and I'm not about to go through my full name. It takes too long. My parents gave me a traditional seventeen-word name. Think of how long it takes me to fill out a job application!!!

When I enter my real name I get "Hipi Iti", a semi-soft New Zealand cheese made from sheep's milk. The nae means "little sheep" in Maori. Not bahahahaaaad, I guess

When I enter Steen, I get "Leerdammer", which I guess is appropriate since I've been known to leer and use foul language at times.

When I entered my real name I got Testouri, a small round Egyptian cheese. When I entered my handle I got Monterrey Jack.

I'd rather be Testouri. Monterrey Jack's only good when there're hot peppers in it.

handle - Kadchgall is a hard cheese from Afghanistan. It is made with sheeps milk, or occasionally camels milk, clotted with yoghurt.

my real name - Edam is a pressed semi-hard cheese from The Netherlands. It comes in a distinctive ball shape, covered in red wax. It has a plastic texture, with a smooth, sweet taste. Edam also comes in black wax, which indicates that it has been matured for at least 17 weeks.

Very interesting. I like the one I get from my real name - much more accurate .

You know you've picked the right online nickname when it returns exactly the same cheese that your full legal name does!

Sage Derby - A hard English cheese, similar to cheddar, but flavoured with herbs, and having a buttery taste.

Wendy: Red Leicester = A hard, grainy cheese, coloured red with annatto. Red Leiceter ripens quickly, and is typically sold after maturing for 10 - 12 weeks, but can be left to ripen for up to 9 months.

Waldo: Same thing! Heeh!

Twinkie: Ricotta = A traditional whey cheese, Ricotta is white, creamy and mild, and is used when making traditional lasagne. Ricotta should be firm, rather than solid, and consists of a mass of fine, moist grains.

Twinkle Toes: Oszczypek= Oszczypek is a very old, smoked cheese, made by shepherds living in the Tatra mountains of Poland from unpasteurised sheeps milk. It has a distinctive, slightly salty taste, and its colour various from pale yellow to brown, depending on the duration of smoking.

TT: Bel Paese = A creamy semi-soft cheese from the Lombardy region of Italy, Bel Paese is matured for 6-8 weeks, and has a light, milky aroma. It is simmilar to the French cheese St. Paulin. The name Bel Paese means "beautiful land", and was inspired by the title of a book by Stoppani.

Wendy Blevins: Brie (my favorite cheese! How spiffy !)= Probably the best known French cheese, Brie is a soft cheese with a leathery, edible rind, and a white, creamy body. Brie is known as the Queen of cheeses, and used to be part of the tributes that had to be paid to the French Kings.

No, I was awake, but I signed off because I work in not too long from now and I wanted to rest me muscles, I would've stayed on if I had known you were going to sign on though..
