No More Danish Feta For You !

I just heard this on NPR: The European Court of Justice has decided that only the "white cheese soaked in brine and originating in Greece" can be called Feta - this inane decision goes into effect starting 2007. France, Britain, Germany and Denmark had applied were lobbying against this ruling.

EU, I have two words for you - Ay Caramba !!

What does - "Ay Caramba !!" mean?
Hmmm. Seems the world has lot of free time to spend over such things :-))

Oh. "Ay Caramba" is a Spanish phrase popularized by the animated series "The Simpsons". I am not sure I can translate it literally but the sentiment conveyed is the same as, say, "Goodness Me!" or "Wow" or "Good God!" in English.
