And why is cheese cloth called cheese cloth, as it is neither cheese nor cloth?


How is it not cloth?

I don't know; I personally don't think that much about it.

My former supervisor would say it often in a joking manner, so I ripped it off from him:  "Cheese cloth:  It's neither cheese nor cloth.  Discuss."


I'd say your former supervisor wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed, or he was seeing if anyone would say "yeah, it is a cloth"

For one, you don't know his personality (he was a perpetual, deliberate goofball), and second, he was a college dean and an attorney, and is sure as poop a heck of a lot sharper than a lot of folks I know, myself included in that.  Most would kill to have his wits.


Well, his sense of humor sucks if that's what was funny to him because well, it is a cloth.  I'm happy for him being a smart fella, but his cheesecloth observation certainly isn't his best work especially if he used it "often".  I have a kid who cleans my dining room in the morning, he'd find it a perplexing riddle to discuss but anyone who has seen or used a cheesecloth, wouldn't.
Since Jammen has told me twice to change my signature, I can only assume his wrestling knowledge is no longer something I can count on along with pizza and beer.

Okey, dokey, it sucks.  After all, you don't know him, while hundreds of others of us who did, and who always found his sense of irony riproaringly funny.  So,of course, you'd be correct and us hundreds who know him would be wrong.

As I said to start this, I personally don't think that much about it, but, please, and, as he says, "knock yourself out."  I really couldn't care any less.

it seems you do or you wouldn't be so verbose explaining it
