A lorry carrying a load of cheese in Norway caught fire in the middle of a tunnel and melted causing a dilemma for Norwegian cheese lovers who rarely have the pleasure because it is a rare product there.
The cheese on toast caused severe smoke problems in the tunnel and the local fire brigade decided it was better to close it until the fumes had relented. On hearing the news that a lorry load of smoked Welsh Rarebit was up for grabs a few locals crept into the tunnel determined to fill their buckets up with the stuff; after all it's mid-winter there and anything is better than eating moose for breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper if you are lucky enough to have bagged a moose that is.
Due to the tunnel being closed for a long period it caused a horrendous traffic jam composed of 1 lorry, 1 Volvo, 2 husky sledges, 2 men on snow shoes, a moose (not dead yet) and a polar bear who had hitchiked a lift on a passing iceberg. The local traffic police had a job controlling the mob, but succeeded after offering the frustrated travellers a piece of freshly toasted Welsh Rarebit, smoked with a smoke salmon topping that live in abundance in Norway.
Several hours later the tunnel was opened after workmen had finished licking up the rests!
