Swiss Fondue Restaurant Wins Legal Fight With Neighbours Over Cheesey Smells


The manager of a Swiss fondue restaurant has won a three-year legal battle over the smell of his cheese after a court decided he did not have to pay a £135 police fine.

The fine was imposed on Florian Kurz after two boutique clothes shops either side of his Zunfthaus zur Zimmerleuten restaurant in Zurich complained that the smell of melted Swiss cheese was driving their customers away, contaminating their products and ruining their business.

Kurz, 35, refused to pay the fine. His lawyer, Lorenz Erni, told the court in Zurich that the neighbouring business owners had used “underhand tactics” to retaliate against the restaurant, including bringing smelly fish on to the premises.

“One of them brought a speciality smelly fish from Norway into the restaurant and started eating it in front of customers. It was really bad,” Kurz told the Guardian. “They also talked badly to the customers and told them that our fondue is not as good as that in other Swiss fondue restaurants.”

The court ruled that the fine should be cancelled and ordered the two neighbouring businesses to pay Kurz £2,600 in costs and £100 in personal damages.

Erni said the court had decided that the smell was not enough to uphold the complaints. “Sure, they are serving cheese fondue, but the smell is not excessive,” he said. “The judge decided that it was normal, and that they have the permission to serve what they want.”

Kurz said the outcome was a victory for fondue. “It’s definitely a good win for the Swiss cheese,” he said. The neighbouring boutique shops were not available for comment.

Russian String Cheese Factory Workers Romp Naked in Milk Vats

If you plan to buy string cheese the next time you go to the supermarket, you may want to check that it wasn’t made in Omsk, Russia.

Russia’s consumer watchdog said that it will inspect an unidentified dairy factory in the Siberian city after photographs of staff members frolicking in a vat of milk used for making cheese appeared Tuesday on a popular social network site, Superomsk.ru information portal reported Wednesday.

Photographs of the “cheesy soak,” which supposedly took place after a pre-New Year’s staff party and involved as many five participants, were posted on the Vkontakte page of Omsk resident Artyom Romanov. In one of the snapshots, an offender is seen brazenly holding up his shorts to the camera while sitting in the vat. The comment, “Well, our work is actually very boring,” accompanied the corresponding photo album on Romanov’s page, on which he is identified as a manufacturer of string cheese.

Though it is unclear whether the bathed-in product was later used to make cheese, disgusted consumers alerted the region’s branch of the Federal Consumer Protection Service, which has promised to conduct a thorough investigation into the incident. A video clip on Romanov’s page that shows several people turning cheese curd in buckets on the floor with their bare hands while wearing nothing more than shorts and footwear is also likely to make interesting viewing for the inspectors.

One of the photos was posted by Vkontakte group OMSK VK [18+] with an accompanying note saying that the milk bath took place at a factory owned by Torgovy Dom Syra, or Trading House of Cheese. A spokesman at the factory declined to comment on the report when contacted by Superomsk.ru.

Florida Man Arrested For Assaulting Family Member While Making Milk Shake


ANNA MARIA — Anna Maria Island resident Monte Veon, 71, decided to make a milk shake at 11:45 p.m. Saturday before he went to bed. He ended up in jail for it.

A family member, seeing Veon place the items for the shake on the counter of his home in the 200 block of Gladiolus Street, Anna Maria, tried to prevent Veon from making the confection, according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report.

The family member reportedly tried to block the 6-foot-1, 240-pound Veon from accessing the refrigerator. Veon reportedly pushed the family member out of the way and proceeded to make a milk shake while the family member called the sheriff’s office.

Veon was charged with simply battery for pushing the family member. He remained in the Manatee County jail Monday night subject to a $500 bond.

He’s Definitely Not Lovin’ It! Woman ‘Sets Fire to Man’s Car Because He Wouldn’t Buy Her a McFlurry’

Burning_Car_McDonalds_JacksonvilleA woman in Florida allegedly set fire to a man’s car after he refused to buy her a McDonald’s McFlurry for dessert.

According to shocked witnesses the man and woman were sitting in the restaurant on Beach Boulevard in Jacksonville at 12.30 on Sunday morning. Suddenly they became embroiled in a huge fight over whether or not she was entitled to one of the popular ice cream treats – at which point she went outside and proceeded to set the man’s car on fire.

‘They were going at it,’ said witness Sabryna Maré of the couple who were standing behind her in line. ‘She was saying she wanted this and wanted that, and she wanted either a McFlurry or an ice cream on top and he was not in for it. Then he was yelling at her saying he’s not going to do it.’

At this point the argument escalated out of hand and the woman began making seemingly outrageous threats. ‘Next thing you know, she says ‘I’m going to blow it up,’ and we were wondering what are you going to blow up?’ said Maré.

At this point the woman burst out of the restaurant and within minutes the shocked patrons of the McDonalds saw 1994 El Dorado in flames in the parking lot.

‘She got something out of the car that happened to be a bottle and then she got gasoline from who knows where. Then she poured everything all over it and next thing you know there was a match and it was up in flames,’ said Maré. Witnesses tried to put the fire out but when the firefighters arrived the car was beyond help.

The woman who is thought to have started the fire disappeared out of the parking lot and the police are keen to speak to her and the man who vanished after the flames were put out. ‘It was one second here, one second there, gone. Later we saw the car parked on the side of Beach Boulevard,’ said Maré.

Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office officers said the license plate did not match the vehicle.
