This only makes sense if you know your cheeses, but if I were a cheese lover I'd be in stitches.

I think my problem is that I come from a country where we have a big dairy industry.. in New Zealand I'd hazard that any random joe would know at least 6 different types of cheese... I mean, Subway sells 3 and that's a fast food chain ^_^ So sorry to all of you who don't come from the wop-wops (er, I mean farming areas). And thanks for keeping the criticism positive you guys are cool.

I thought it was funny. The only problem I see is that you should have said the kids were triplets. How would Mr. Robinson know to start the gag when the first was born? You can finesse the nicknames between boys and girls (Camille, Emmet, and Barbara), but counting on three children might be a little dodgy.

Don't worry too much about the fine detail It was a bit of fun

norcekri: You make a good point, however planning a family these days is not so difficult (religion not withstanding). For example there is a music teacher in my city with three children named Hemi, Demi and Semi (after the "hemi-demi-semi-quaver" note length).
