Where Did the Term Cut the Cheese Originate?

Answer

Cheese contains proteins and fat from milk that comes from various animals like, cows, sheep and goats. It is produced by the coagulation of protein casein. Cheese has a thick layer of wax on the outside, it is hard to tell if it smells because of the thick wax layer. If someone cuts through the layer, the stinky smell is felt, hence when someone smelt it, they would claim 'who cut the cheese?' This phrase originated from the United States of America and its stinky cheese.
