The late, and dearly departed Cheese Toastie

Norwegian Cheese Fire Closes Tunnel

Police officer Viggo Berg said the high concentration of fat and sugar in the cheese made it burn "almost like petrol if it gets hot enough".

They should have sent the fire brigade in with a tank full of bmi tea to help quell the flames.

It certainly was an experience, I can tell you that. One a week was never good for my waistline.
