More (sorry) about the Cheese Festival:
To launch the Third Annual Seattle Cheese Festival off on the right wheel, a “Rolling of the Truckles” will pit men against cheese on Saturday, May 19 beginning at 10:00 a.m. A truckle is an 18-pound barrel-shaped cheese that’s taller than it is wide. Rolling one of these cylinders requires a special cheese spatula and, perhaps, a sense of humor.“Truckle”: best word ever.
