'Cheesy' Webcam's a Traffic Driver

Cheese lovers have been logging onto a British Webcam in droves to watch a hunk of cheddar ripen.

Proving once and for all that the Web has something for everyone, cheese makers in the southwest of England have set up a 24-hour webcam that focuses on a 40-pound round of cheese. Cheddar, to be exact.

But that's not the amazing part. What's amazing is that since the webcam went live, the site has had more than 525,000 hits. That's a lot of fans of fromage.

The BBC reports that Thursday, March 28 was a big day for the cheese. More than 17,000 viewers logged in to watch as a professional cheese-maker peformed the first quality check on the cheddar. He was pleased to report that it "tasted fresh, nutty and very buttery."

I will spare you the pain of a joke which refers to the cheese and computer mice in any way, shape or form.
