Ham And Cheese On Wry?

When SpaceX Dragon, the commercial spacecraft that orbited Earth for three hours on Wednesday, was sent up, there was some secret cargo on board. It turns out they sent a wheel of Le Brouere cheese into space. A spokesperson says it was in homage to the Monty Python “Cheese Shop” sketch and was bolted to the floor in a circular drum that had a picture of a cow and the warning “Top Secret!” as a wink to the movie Airplane! No mention of its being sent up in honor of Ham, the first chimp sent into space in 1961. And to think, it took 49 years to finally have Ham and Cheese in space!
