“How do you make Swiss cheese?"/"With a holey cow.”

A riddle about the holes in Swiss cheese is:

Q: How do you make Swiss cheese?
A: with a holey cow.

“Do they use holy cows to make Swiss Cheese?” was posted on Twitter on April 5, 2009.

“Holy cow!” was a catchphrase of New York Yankees announcer Phil Rizzuto (1917-2007). “Do holy cows make Swiss cheese?” has been printed on an image.

“What kind of milk do they use to make Swiss cheese?"/"Hole milk” is a similar Swiss cheese riddle.

Wikipedia: Swiss cheese
Swiss cheese is a generic name in North America for several related varieties of cheese, mainly of North American manufacture, which resemble Emmental cheese, a yellow, medium-hard cheese that originated in the area around Emmental, in Switzerland. Some types of Swiss cheese have a distinctive appearance, as the blocks of the cheese are riddled with holes known as “eyes”. Swiss cheese without eyes is known as “blind”. (The term is applied to cheeses of this style made outside Switzerland, such as Jarlsberg cheese, which originates in Norway).
