Finally, a national crisis that DOESN'T make me want to move to Canada!

America is now facing the issue of a massive cheese surplus. About 1.19 billion pounds of extra cheese is sitting in cold storage at places like restaurants and stores.

This cheese stockpile is due in part to European sanctions against trading with Russia, so cheese prices dropped and America decided that we would buy a bunch of extra dairy goodness. A wise investment really.

On average Americans eat about 36 pounds of cheese every year. This year we all need to pick up the slack and consume 39 pounds if we want to clear out this extra cheese. Challenge accepted.

I am just hoping that because of this surplus, pizza shops stop charging more for extra cheese. Just put extra on and let me help you get rid of it.
