Cheese ban? Washington City Outlaws Cheese in Support of Seahawks

A cheese ban in Washington may be taking NFC title game matchup with Packers a little far.

The city manager issued the executive order yesterday, as the Seattle Seahawks prepare to face The Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship.

The City of Bainbridge Island, Wash. has banned cheese — be it the dairy variety or the foam-hat form — from City Hall ahead of Sunday’s NFC championship game between the Seattle Seahawks and the cheese-loving Green Bay Packers.

Obviously fearing some sort of cheesehead invasion into the city’s municipal hub, Bainbridge Island city manager Douglas Schulze brought down this executive order on Wednesday:

Section 1. All executive branch departments and divisions of the Local Government shall authorize employees to celebrate Blue Friday on each Friday prior to any games of the Seattle Seahawks by wearing Seahawks jerseys, logo gear, team colors and gathering at lunch or breaks for tailgating type foods and non-alcoholic beverages.

Section 2. On Sunday, January 18, 2015, the Seattle Seahawks opponent in the NFC Championship game will be the Green Bay Packers, a.k.a. Cheeseheads. Fans of the Green Bay Packers are frequently seen wearing obnoxious wedge-shaped foam hats painted yellow.

Section 3. Due to the relationship between the Green Bay Packers, their fans, and cheese, the possession of and/or consumption of cheese or cheese flavored products shall be banned in Bainbridge Island City Hall on Friday, January 16, 2015.
