History Fact

Where Are Your Manners?

Here’s a comeback for all the fussy moms out there: tablecloths, no matter how fancy they’ve gotten today, were originally designed as one big, long napkin. Guests were meant to wipe off their hands and faces on the tablecloth after a messy feast.

Weird Laws

Food Thing

Best Muenster-Cheese Dishes in the U.S.

Muenster was first made by European immigrants in Wisconsin in the 1800s, and that cheese-loving state is still the place to go try to this cheese.

Across the state, you’ll find muenster served on hot dogs, burgers, paired with charcuterie, you name it. You can also try it all on its own at some Wisconsin creameries offering guided tours, like Nordic Creamery in Westby, and specialty stores like K&K Cheese in Cashton. (K&K’s muenster is so good, an Illinois man was busted a few years ago for trying to steal 42,000 pounds of it!)

Not heading to Wisconsin? I Heart Mac & Cheese, with locations in six states (including several in Florida), is mad for muenster, offering it in a lobster mac and cheese (pictured here), Philly cheesesteak and grilled-cheese sandwich.

Movie/TV Trivia

Inglourious Basterds

When asked how he got into the violent, baseball bat-wielding mindset of "The Bear Jew", Eli Roth partially attributed his performance to the historically accurate costumes: "Being in wool underwear will make you want to kill anything." He also stated (in a separate interview) that his girlfriend had secretly added some Hannah Montana (2006) music onto his iPod; when he listened to it, it inexplicably made him able to tap into the violent nature of The Bear Jew.
