Biden visit to cheese shop irritates woman

KENOSHA, Wis. -

A word of advice to candidates campaigning in Wisconsin: Don't get between voters and their cheese.

Vice President Joe Biden seemed to irritate a shopper at the Mars Cheese Castle in Kenosha on Friday when he caused a disruption with a quick visit at the famous landmark just off Interstate 94.

As Biden cheerily greeted customers, a 30-something woman tried to explain what was happening to her young daughter.

The woman said: "This is a battleground state. They're trying to win it. I just need some Limburger cheese."

Biden was shown such delicacies as chocolate cheese and 13-year-old cheddar.

Biden commented to general manager Tyson Whermeister, "That's great, man."
