"cheese and rice"

If you ever happen to catch Wedding Crashers on television — but not a premium cable station, you will encounter one of the more amusing and creative substitute curses. Vince Vaughan can repeatedly be heard to exclaim, "Cheese and Rice!" instead of "Jesus Christ!"

There's something about the wack-a-doodle family that Vaughan and Owen Wilson's characters are visiting in the movie, and Vaughan's general comedic presence, that make me think that he should adopt that phrase and use it for real in his next film. I usually don't like edited movies, but somehow the beleaguered Vaughan yelling "Cheese and Rice!" multiple times makes for an even funnier scene in a pretty damn funny movie. I mean, darn funny movie. Oh, shut the front door.
