Bainbridge Island, a short ferry ride across the Puget Sound from Seattle, implemented a ban on cheese this week.
A local government document signed by city manager Douglas Schulze, banned the "possession of and/or consumption of cheese or cheese flavored products" from the City Hall.
The ban was implemented in the build-up to the local American Football team Seattle Seahawks' game against the Green Bay Packers who are well-known for their strong affiliation to cheese.
Fans of the Green Bay Packers are frequently seen wearing obnoxious wedge-shaped foam hats painted yellow.
