Regulation of the Day 84: The Size of Holes in Swiss Cheese

Talk about attention to detail. The federal government regulates the size of holes in Swiss cheese. The majority of the “eyes” (technical speak for “holes”) must be between 3/8” and 11/16” for the cheese to qualify as Grade A or B. Anything bigger or smaller and the cheese is relegated to the barely-edible Grade C. Even if the cheese is otherwise perfect. (Hat tip to Jonny Slemrod)
