Wisconsin…It’s America’s Dairyland Richard Armitage!

There have a been a slew of new pictures of Richard Armitage appearing with the worldwide release to The Hobbit:  The Battle of the Five Armies, and one of them just about did me in…not for the reasons you are probably thinking.  The first time I saw it was on my tiny 3″ x 2″ cell phone screen.  It looked a little something like this:

Wait a minute...what is that on his head???

Wait a minute…what is that on his head???  I can’t quite make it out…

“Is that a cheesehead hat??” was my immediate thought.  You know, America’s Dairyland…foam hats in the shape of a wedge of oddly colored holey cheese?

Good Lord, that’s a relief!  But honestly…I had good reason…The resemblance is uncanny!

I'm only kinda sorry for this one....   :)

I’m only kinda sorry for this one…. 🙂

    Reblogged this on FunkyBlueDandelion and commented:
    Why do I ❤ my sidewinder? Because she does stuff like this. Thanks for the giggle, Obscura!

    It’s a good look. Very dairy-ing.

    Why be sorry, looks good on him, plus he has said he likes cheese.

    LOL. *Now* I understand your BTS remark about “cheese foamheads”. I had no idea… Nothing looks bad on a beautiful man 😉

    • obscura says:

      Sorry about that…I don’t mean to speak in Wisconsin code 🙂

      It must mean that I’m extra comfortable with you…although I try to minimize it as a rule, my son recently observed that my “Valley” accent is really strong when I am very relaxed with whomever I’m speaking with – I was talking to Mini Me’s friends when he remarked on it. Servetus noticed the same thing when I talk with her.

        😀 I am learning much about American culture these days. Who would’ve thunk…

        • obscura says:

          Come for the culture, stay for the cheese curds 🙂 (not to mention craft superstores and ubiquitous peanut butter!)

          • Guylty says:

            I think I’ll take the last two. (I hate cheese with a passion. Sorry ;-))

          • obscura says:

            LOL…curds are only partly cheese really 😉

            I’ve no doubt that if you ever visit, we’d have a great time eating pb&j and hitting every craft store from Michaels to Hobby Lobby! (You’ll need an extra bag for beads and mini disco balls!!)

          • obscura says:

            Oh, and as to cheese…don’t let this get out, or a mob might assemble on my lawn…but except in notable instances, I can take or leave cheese. I know! Shocking revelations from the Dairy State). 😀

          • Servetus says:

            If they ever try to take away your Wisconsin membership card, let me know. I’ll attest to your feelings about beer.

      • Servetus says:

        yes, and the vocab. I love it when you and I visit.

        • obscura says:

          I notice that I don’t hear much of your “Valley” accent though…that might be a total immersion thing ey?

          • Servetus says:

            I made a conscious effort to get rid of it in 1987 when people started making fun of me for it. The only things that are really left are the long “o” (sorry) and the short “a” (bag).

          • obscura says:

            I took some heat for it in both Arizona (seriously?!) and Philadelphia then someone else called it “charming” *shrugs*

    LOL. As an honorary cheesehead (in both the gourmet and Wisconsin senses), I found this hilarious! Let’s hope he visits some day, so he can enjoy the nation’s finest Dairy Air.

  8. Hariclea says:

    i love the cheese and i want a slice of that… Schweizer :p

  9. […] Dairyland after this?   How can you say such a thing after you donned the unofficial insignia of dairy royalty?   You roll around in ribald remarks ’til the cows come home, but iks-nay on the ilk-may […]
