World's Most Expensive Cheese Comes From A Donkey

But you can put away your wallet, because someone already bought it all.

Ass milk. Doesn't that sound delicious? No? What if it was curdled, pressed into a solid form, and then left out to get really, really old? That doesn't make your mouth water? Well, it doesn't matter, because your unrefined palate will probably never experience the "unique taste" of donkey cheese since some asshole tennis player bought ALL OF IT.

In what may be the weirdest food/athlete story since George Foreman retired from boxing to convince people to cook meat on an indoor grill, Serbian Wimbledon champ Novak Djokovic bought the world's entire supply of donkey cheese. The Zasavica farm in Serbia is the only place in existence where donkeys are milked for cheese, and Djokovic strolled in one day and bought the whole year's output, at $650/pound.

But lest you think Djokovic is being selfish and hogging the donkey cheese all to himself, he's actually planning to serve it up at a new restaurant that he opened in his motherland. So if you've got a hankering for cheese that comes from a burro's teat, you may be in luck after all. You'll just need to fly to Serbia and eat at Novak Café & Restaurant. Don't forget the Lactaid.
