Big Block of Cheese Day is back!

Big Block of Cheese Day is back!

Bradley Whitford, Joshua Malina, Mary McCormack, Dul Hill, Richard Schiff, Allison Janney, and Martin Sheen teamed up with real life White House press secretary Josh Earnest to help promote the second annual Big Block of Cheese Day, as inspired by The West Wing (which was inspired by the real event of President Andrew Jackson having a big block of cheese in the foyer).

Here at the White House, we're dedicated to making President Obama's administration the most open and accessible in history. That's why, for the second year in a row, we thought it'd be a gouda idea to brie-unite a certain cast of characters to help us bring back a tradition that dates back to the days of President Andrew Jackson.

On February 22, 1837, President Jackson had a 1,400-pound block of cheese hauled into the main foyer of the White House for an open house with thousands of citizens and his staff, where they discussed the issues of the day while carving off slabs of cheddar.

This year, we aim to do even feta. On Wednesday, January 21, in fromage to President Jackson (and to President Bartlet, if you're a fan of The West Wing), we're hosting the second-annual virtual Big Block of Cheese Day, where members of the Obama administration will take to social media to answer your questions about the President's State of the Union address and the issues that are most important to you.

Log on to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr, and ask away using the hashtag #AskTheWH. We'll do our best to answer as many questions as we can.

So be sure to visit WhiteHouse.gov/SOTU to watch the State of the Union address on January 20, 2015 at 9 p.m. ET and check out the schedule of all the ways you can engage on the following day, January 21. We camembert to think you'd miss it.

This is a great idea and I love that the West Wing actors are involved in promoting it. Truly one of the best casts of all time.

That being said, the cheese puns were, um, crap, I want to say, "cheesy," but that just perpetuates the cycle. I'll just say "played out."

Rest in Peace, knowing your idea lives on, Leo McGarry (aka John Spencer)!

If anyone deserves a made-up day about cheese, it's the Canadians. We do, after all, put that shit on everything.

I approve of the cheese-related puns, by the way.

That was great!

Ally probably uses gouda to polish all those Emmys. It's waxy.

That's what Top Gear UK always say about their resident "American" Richard Hammond.

George Costanza had some ideas about big blocks of cheese too.
