“Where’s the cheese grater?"/"Some say France…”

"Grater” sounds like the word “greater.” A joke was posted on Twitter on June 13, 2012:

“My wife was preparing lunch today when she asked, ‘Where’s the cheese grater?’
‘Some would say France, others would say England,’ I replied.”


The cheese joke originated on the website Sickipedia.

Two cafe workers were preparing sandwiches for the day when one asked the other “where’s the cheese grater?”
Her colleague replied, “Some would say France, others would say England. It depends on your personal preference....."😘
