This puzzle was as delectable and refined as a fine gourmand cheese paired with the perfect wine. Cheers to Andy.(T)

Great puzzle, crafted with great knowledge.

I have no discrimination about cheese whatsoever, except I know the yellow box kind makes an easy queso with Rotel canned tomatoes. But I can appreciate those who do.

That was hard work. Almost broke the 1-hour barrier! I can blame it on a couple of phone calls and a few folks stopping by (that's what happens when a puzzle takes that long), but most of that time was spent hurting my brain! Very clever, though you might take it easier on us next time.

Whoa. I got killed right out of the chute with a French word. Argh.

Much of this made no sense to me at all, but at least you can say that the WP is not America-centric.

Wow! What a toughie. Got the gimmick right away, but not the phrases.

I thought I did it badly but I saw the table and I was quite proud with myself. Has anyone seen the bread?

Well, Diane, if you and the other aces think it was hard, Sploofusgenie was right to doubt the sample phrases I forwarded early on, which I then left out.

Who Cut The Cheese?

Thank you for your kind remarks, especially those brilliant puns from Steve.

Katy, "Who Cut the Cheese" was the working title of this WP and the editors thought it a bit risque, off-color.

And I submitted right it when you all were complaining about too many word-elimination puzzles. Fortunately we haven't had one for a while.

Another one? Well, maybe in a few months.

Who cut the cheese is considered too risque?

Way to go, Katy.

Feel free the leave the names of the cheeses in the next WP. It will be just as good. Maybe better.

I liked it a lot. Tough but very well created. My wife threatened to turn me into cheese if I yelled out to her one more time "What kind of cheese is ......?"

I'm with Katie, it would've been more enjoyable if Andy hadn't cut the cheese. One of mine had a fetal flaw.

What was the relationship between the clues and the answers? This obviously went over my head!

The fetal flaw didn't bother me. My difficulty was on my first puzzle getting Mr. Terrier Thackeray-Glockenspiel-Gorgonzola Woof Woof Woof or whatever, and not knowing who he was, what cheese was in his name, and that there was even one missing!

There was a cheese missing?

Since I completely missed that concept, I didn't know that he had cheese in his name. Bwahahahahahaaaa!

Edam fine puzzle, Andy! I most enjoy sinking my teeth into the really challenging ones.

I am surprised I did not encounter the great French wrestler and showman with his fangs, claws, Emile "The Gorgon" Zola.

Sandy, I could write a note of excuse to give to the teacher if you were working on our puzzle.

Once again, thank you for your kind remarks even from those of you who might not have enjoyed the WP so much. And thank you to Sploofusgenie, my excellent editor.

To solve the phrase you had to identify the cheese of each puzzle. Now if you had Googled the clue, you would have probably found the cheese or several cheeses only one of which you reasonably could include into a sentence.

That cheese then was sliced out of the original phrase in which it occurred.

BTW if only you knew how hard I had to dig to find 10 workable cheeses, you'd have a little more sympathy for those I selected. Try using Caerphilly in a sentence. Or Camembert. Roquefort, Pyrenees, Manchego . . .

We may visit this theme again.

Because I eat the best French cheeses every day and

Because I love word elimination puzzles and Beth's are absolutely the very best.
