    My thought when I saw this on Sunday was that all the characters and their accoutrements were cheezy. It should have said Cheezy Balls, but I think that is the joke.

    I’m pretty sure the answer is in here, somewhere…

    James P - At least I didn’t squirm after reading that definition on the Urban Dictionary. It fits. I still say they are all cheezy though.

    More like dirtballs.

    Any other Flecktones fans here? They recorded a piece called “Cheeseballs in Cowtown”.

    I just realized, reading my first comment, that cheezy balls sounds disgusting. I’m sorry I put that image in my own head let alone anyone else. I apologize.

    Help me understand the Cheez Balls:

    From left to right:
    1) I Googled “The Shirt Before the Shirt” and see it’s from “Jersey Shore” (my first exposure to this…). Is the Cheez Ball supposed to be a character from “Jersey Shore” or a fan of the series?
    2) Some “Sopranos” type of guy?
    3) Cowboy? Fake cowboy? Weirdo who tucks his pants into his boots?
    4) Generic sports fan - or a specific reference?

    Many thanks.

    I think it’s because they’re all so cultured.

    “Cheeseball” is slang for a cheezy person. Like, old person slang. No one here knows any slangy old people?

    Nominate for Sunday’s Comics That Made Me LOL! Too funny!

    They just look like they’re representing a bunch of tacky stereotypes to me — Jersey Boy, Lounge Lizard, Cowboy, Sports-Fan-With-Hat-That-Holds-Beer. None of them are very clever or original. Perhaps that’s what the artist meant by “cheeseball?”

    “Not clever”? The cheezy sports fan is dressed in Buffalo Bills regalia, and features the jersey number “04″. The clever part is the Bills went to 4 consecutive Super bowls…and lost all 4. “Oh-for-four” THAT’S clever.

    Anybody else notice that Lio opened the bottom of the bag?
