The FDA tried to ban artisan cheese yesterday, and the Twitter backlash was outstanding. The FDA responded with a big "just kidding" and we're pretty sure it's because of the insane response they got from social media and the petitions being passed around the Web.

To take you through the reactions that prompted the FDA to backpedal, here's a roundup of some of the best tweets we saw. Some of our favorite moments? The #Speakcheesies and #Savethecheese hashtags that sprung from the article and started a stinky, smelly movement. And if you expect explicit, NSFW language to follow, then you're correct:

Us, too Francesca -- us too... We #Savedthecheese! Can we still have #Speakcheesies though?
