Novak Djokovic Buys Up World's Supply of Donkey Cheese: The No. 1-ranked men's tennis player and Wimbledon champion has bought up the world's entire 2013 supply of donkey cheese for his chain of restaurants in Serbia. The Zasavica farm in that country is the only place in the world that milks donkeys for cheese, which is called pule and sells for around $650 an ounce.

Too weird to be an Onion headline.

Y'all will have to pardon rcade. They had a Tebow sighting in Jacksonville yesterday and the intoxicating vapors are still lingering over the banks of the St. John's.

So if my sister in law crosses truffle oil off her Christmas list and says she wants mule pule instead, I need to tell her she's been Djokovic'ed?

When I complain about Sandusky-type stuff on the Sports page, I am not speaking of things like this. Because this is hilarious and awesome.

Now I want to go to a tennis match and scream "WHERE'S MY DONKEY CHEESE, NOVAK?!?" until I am escorted from the premises. Or until a spy gives me microfilm.

Posting that headline is the pinnacle of my blogging here, never to be topped.

I think this might be the greatest entry in SpoFi history. Close up the site, folks. We're not going to be able to top this.

Hyperbole? Yes. Sarcasm? No.

Even the comment "making an a$$ of himself" seems too trite for this thread. Wait, I said it anyway. That's it, I'm throwing in with Joey; shut the site down, we can't top this one.

Brilliant move. Djovokic will be making money out the ass.

It is true that Zasavica is the only town in the world which milks donkeys for cheese, but Guy Fieri will attest that if you try it on the males, you end up with a handful of Donkey Sauce.

This would be funnier if it would let me make the damned trademark symbol.

I hereby stake claim to the team name "Donkey Cheese" for any and all upcoming SpoFi fantasy/pick 'em leagues. After all, it WAS my college nickname.

Unless, of course rcade wants it. Or Djoko buys it.

Maybe there's something wrong with me, but every comment so far (except mine) has made me chortle uncontrollably. You people are gold. Gold like fine donkey cheese.

Oh God, Ass Cheese, I just realized.

*dies*

This morning, over breakfast, I asked Mrs Owl (a big tennis fan) if she would ever use the words "Novak Djokovic" and "Donkey Cheese" in a sentence.

Eyebrows were raised.

Anyone who tries to surf the boat wake of rcade's IP will have to answer to God's Rottweiler.

Don't you tell me I can't surf that wake. I, sir, will school your ass in donkey cheese law if forced to do so.

It's not me you have to worry about, counselor. It's the posse of gentlemen with the matching red accessories. They have their own private army.
