Welcome to an All Too Flat behind-the-scenes exclusive on the Making of the Bible According to Cheese. (Woof, that's a mouthful!) People are e-mailing us all the time with questions about the Bible Accoring to Cheese (which you can abbreviate Bi.A.T.Ch.!) and here is a sneak peek into what really goes into making such an educational web site.

A nice close-up of David. No cheese pun with this one, but he's so darn cute!
Here Ben is trying to get that whole illusion-of-motion effect of pouring water in the Parmesean the Baptist vignette.
After a long day of work, Parmesean the Baptist retires to his trailer:
Where Are They Now?
What ever became of the one-hit wonders of the Bible According to Cheese? Every wonder what became of your favorite cheeses? After their sudden explosion into the spotlight, they spiraled into a never-ending battle with drugs, booze, and women. (You've all heard of Wine and Cheese, right?)
An exclusive All Too Flat reporter has managed to catch a glipse of the famous cheese actors in their current state:

Well. We offered our little friends for sale on e-bay, but no one bid. Our reserve was $0.99! And we couldn't even get that much! So sad. As a result, our little friends met with an untimely doom:
