Green Bay -- The Cheese Head Biz is BOOMING

1/21/2011 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

With the Green Bay Packers gearing up for the NFC Championship game this weekend ... TMZ has learned the official makers of the famous foam Cheese Head have called in for back up to keep up with demand.

According to the head-cheese at Wisconsin-based Foamation -- creators of the iconic headgear -- the company has had to bring in extra staff to keep up with the surge in orders ... "literally thousands coming in every day."

We're told the official pro shop at Lambeau Field went through 1,000 cheese-heads this week alone -- filling orders from as far away as the United Kingdom.

The Queso kings also tell us that they've got deals in place pending on the outcome of the game -- and if Green Bay defeats the Chicago Bears ... they'll be rolling in cheddah!!!

So we gotta ask ...

No contest. Wisconsin is full of hicks. A degree to them is on the thermometer hanging out of a big FAT baby's butt.

They are all huge, plain and really dumb.

Haha Just love how you use Aussie Wallabies fans for your Green bay packer fans. If you would notice, the guy has a Australian flag around his neck. Next time use your own fans

i'm from milwaukee, and chicago has always been our biggest rival, we're called cheese heads, a name we wear with pride and we call people from illinois fibs, which stands for ****ing illinois bastard. this competition between the 2 is like a religion, both take the game very serious. the name fib began with the baby boomers, and is alive and well in te midwest. this sunday, you will see hundreds of people grilling out, it doesn't matter that it will be 29 below outside. it's a time honered tradition. it's all about beer and brats,and the pack. vince lombardi would be proud!

Sitting here at my job this morning in good old Chicago watching all my co-workers with casual friday attire of Bears wear!

To say the least, not much is going to get done around here today, and I'm sure this business won't be alone!

It is our turn smelly cheese faces......we will take it, we send all of you back 'up north' cryin'!!!

We are on fire down here waiting for the arrival! Parties everywhere, people happy, its colder than a witches ti-tt-y here, but that ain't stopping us!
I already took off on Monday....


GO BEARS!!!!!!! GO BEARS!!!!!!!!! GO BEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I happen to be from Wisconsin, and I earned my degree at one of the country's best public universities. (Also known as the University of Wisconsin-Madison). I don't know about you, but I'd say that is a little more than a degree on a thermometer. Proud to say I'm from Wisconsin and proud to say I'm a cheesehead. Go Packers!

SoThere    

Those cheese hats look ridiculous and stupid.
Da Bears fans don't look gay like the packer fans.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Wow JLS... what an intelligent, well thought out comment about ALL of Wisconsin. And it totally applies here, too... because I'm sure the Packers players, who are from all over the country, probably immediately turned into big dumb hicks when they crossed the WI border. By the way, how's your team doing?

Seriously, though - I have read a lot of ignorant comments on this site, but that might have topped them all. Wisconsin has a lot of farmers - INTELLIGENT, hard-working farmers who make a great living... and there are also business people, entrepreneurs, teachers, lawyers, doctors, scientists. And sure, some hicks... but almost all of the above is true of every state. Wisconsin also has a GREAT education system that puts most other states to shame.

And if you were ever to visit, you'd be greeted with warm smiles and hospitality despite your decision to be hateful and nasty. And you'd see that people have a sense of humor about themselves... duh, people. The cheeseheads are something FUN that people do that makes them SMILE about their home state. Packer fans truly enjoy the game... enjoy their beer, their brats, and the camaraderie. And yes, their cheeseheads! There is nothing here that is worth your hatred. Jealousy? Perhaps. But not hatred.

One thing is for sure... this game will be legendary for much of the Midwest! And both teams are great. Go Packers!

The Bears will shut down Rogers and win the game. GB has a poor running game and no Special Teams. Bears have a solid QB (i hope) solid RBs, TE, WRs, Defense and Special Teams. Plus we know how to play on the crappy field at Soldierssssssss Field. Bears win by 7. BEAR DOWN!!!
