The Cooper's Hill cheese-rolling event takes place every year in Gloucestershire. Competitors chase a large Double Gloucester cheese down a hill, and the first person to pass the finish line wins the cheese.

英國格洛斯特郡每年都舉行庫珀山 (The Cooper's Hill) 追奶酪比賽活動。競爭對手每人追趕著一個巨大的雙格洛斯特奶酪下山,第一個通過終點的人贏得奶酪。


The big cheese 是一種比喻,指一個組織機構中的最有權勢的人,也就是我們常說的大老闆。

I don't want to work as a secretary all my life. One day, I'm going to be the big cheese!


如果形容兩個人截然不同就可以說他們倆就像 chalk and cheese, 說明兩個人一點都不一樣。
