Earlier this week, a slice of cheese was discovered wedged within a library book at the university. The finder of the slice was reported to be both “amused and disgusted” by the melting dairy square, although in their shock gouda’nt remember the title of the book that held the slice.

Staff at the UoL library reported to the BBC that the “disconcertingly warm and liquid” slice was discovered “somewhere between American history and geography”. 

The tweet of this unusual find by the Univeristy’s library staff has since brought the website a gouda deal of fun and humour, with the tweet already being retweeted more than 20,000 times. 

The attention even spread to news outlets such as BBC News, Guardian and The Echo. Warning: many puns to follow:

The library also notes that whilst they do allow students to bring food and snacks in the library, it is probably better not to use them as bookmarks.

The identity of the owner of the cheese is yet unknown but perhaps one day someone can cheddar light on the story of their dairy marker!
