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

Gorgonzola cheese doesn’t contain the Gorgons of ancient Greek mythology, but there are jokes. “Perseus and the Gorgonzola #cheesemyths” was posted on Twitter on December 28, 2009. “What was Perseus’ favourite cheese? Gorgonzola” was posted on Twitter on January 21, 2016.

A riddle was posted on Reddit—Dad Jokes on June 14, 2018:

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



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.
