“What hotel do mice stay in?/"The Stilton.”

Stilton cheese (from the UK) is not related to the Hilton hotel change, but there’s a cheese joke:

Q: What hotel do mice stay in?
A: The Stilton.


The joke was cited on Twitter on January 11, 2011. An additional cheese joke about “Paris Stilton” (Paris Hilton) is sometimes added.


Wikipedia: Stilton cheese
Stilton is an English cheese, produced in two varieties: Blue known for its characteristic strong smell and taste, and the lesser-known White.

Both Blue Stilton and White Stilton have been granted the status of a protected designation of origin by the European Commission. The PDO status requires that only cheese produced in the three counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, and Nottinghamshire and made according to a strict code may be called “Stilton”; thus cheese made in the village of Stilton cannot be called “Stilton”.

History
According to the Stilton Cheesemaker’s Association, the first Englishman to market Blue Stilton cheese was Cooper Thornhill, owner of the Bell Inn on the Great North Road, in the village of Stilton, Huntingdonshire. Traditional legend has it that in 1730, Thornhill discovered a distinctive blue cheese while visiting a small farm near Melton Mowbray in rural Leicestershire – possibly in Wymondham.

Wikipedia: Hilton Hotels & Resorts
Hilton Hotels & Resorts (formerly known as Hilton Hotels) is an international chain of full service hotels and resorts and the flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide.

The original company was founded by Conrad Hilton. As of 2010, there were over 530 Hilton branded hotels across the world in 78 countries across six continents. Hilton hotels are either owned by, managed by, or franchised to independent operators by Hilton Worldwide.
