“Which cheese festival is the shortest?"/"The Brie Fest.”

The word “briefest” has nothing to do with a cheese festival (brie fest), but there are jokes.

“*snort* just read briefest as Brie-fest. Like festival of cheese” was posted on Twitter by Kate Cuthbert 馃摎 on September 24, 2009. “Q: Which is France’s quickest festival of soft, unpasteurised cheese? A: The Brie-Fest… Ha ha ha?” was posted on Twitter by Richard V. Hirst on May 18, 2010. “Which cheese festival is the shortest? The Brie Fest” was posted on Twitter by Grogury Ripley on February 10, 2022. “Just been to the shortest cheese festival ever.

Wikipedia: Brie
Brie (/bri藧/; French: [b蕘i]) is a soft cow’s-milk cheese named after Brie, the French region from which it originated (roughly corresponding to the modern d茅partement of Seine-et-Marne). It is pale in color with a slight grayish tinge under a rind of white mould. The rind is typically eaten, with its flavor depending largely upon the ingredients used and its manufacturing environment.

I went to a very short cheese festival the other day. It was the briefest brie fest I’ve ever been to.
