“What is Medusa’s favorite cheese?"/"Gorgonzola.”

Gorgonzola cheese doesn’t contain the Gorgons of ancient Greek mythology, but there are jokes. A riddle has been cited in print since at least 2009:

Q: What is Medusa’s favorite cheese?
A: Gorgonzola.

“What is Perseus’s least favorite cheese?"/"Gorgonzola” is a related riddle.

WikipediaL Gorgonzola
Gorgonzola (/ɡɔːrɡənˈzoʊlə/; Italian pronunciation: [ɡorɡonˈdzɔːla]) is a veined Italian blue cheese, made from unskimmed cow’s milk. It can be buttery or firm, crumbly and quite salty, with a “bite” from its blue veining.

Wikipedia: Gorgon
In Greek mythology, a Gorgon (/ˈɡɔːrɡən/; plural: Gorgons, Ancient Greek: Γοργών/Γοργώ Gorgon/Gorgo) is a female creature.

While descriptions of Gorgons vary across Greek literature and occur in the earliest examples of Greek literature, the term commonly refers to any of three sisters who had hair made of living, venomous snakes, as well as a horrifying visage that turned those who beheld her to stone. Traditionally, while two of the Gorgons were immortal, Stheno and Euryale, their sister Medusa was not and she was slain by the demigod and hero Perseus.
