Who Cut the Cheese?

    There's a new taste sensation in Italy, and it's causing the natives of Sardinia to go wild: casu marzu, which means "rotten cheese." And that's exactly what it is: moldy-brown, putrefying curds of sheep cheese, covered with wriggling maggots.

    The government has banned the sale of the cheese, but for some reason the locals love it, even though its bitter and rancid flavor causes more winces than smiles, and it leaves a burning sensation on the tongue. Even worse, the maggots have been known, on occasion, to jump off the cheese and land in the eye of the person taking a bite.
