How lazy have we become if we can’t get the grater out of the drawer and shred a little cheese? (Source: The Sun Herald)
Can't you just hear Jay Leno saying these words as part of his nightly monologue jabbing Americans for their excessive, over-extended diets? Here's a great article that suggests that just maybe we could come up with another representation of "American Cheese" rather than the stuff we find in a pressurized can, or the stuff we so conveniently slap together for a quick grilled cheese sandwich, or the orange glop that we call cheese over ballpark nachos.

Yes, American cheese can be convenient too, but don't you think it's time that American cheese is known for being some of the most delicious cheese on the planet?
