    The world is bailing out banks and car companies. Italy is coming to the rescue of parmigiano cheese.

    "It's a tragic situation," said Marco Iemmi, who has been making parmigiano for 30 years in Salsomaggiore Terme, a small town in Italy's fertile northern Emilia-Romagna region. "I'll have to close up shop unless things improve."
  2. Maybe ECB also needs to bailout Amsterdam red-light-district hookers.
    They are an icon, after all.
  3. Rappers spend lots of cheese, are they getting a bailout? :D
