Cheese goes well on everything: nachos, pasta, cheeseburgers, chili cheese dogs, the list goes on. But what about throwing cheese at your dog? One Twitter user sparked a viral sensation on Saturday after he invented “dog cheese,” a game where you lob a slice of American cheese at a pupper and see how they react.

YouTuber Matthew Elias first came up with the idea after spending a lifetime throwing cheese at things. After he ran out of objects, he “thought I’d see if my dog could catch it,” he told BuzzFeed News. The end result is, of course, dog cheese.

“Fuck beer pong,” Elias tweeted, “we playin dog cheese.”

Twitter quickly joined in on the fun.

Some dogs could catch the cheese with their mouths.

Others couldn’t.

Don’t have a dog? No worries. Try a lizard or a cat.

A human works too.

As for Elias’ newfound dog-cheese fame? He figured he’d become a viral sensation sooner or later, but not quite like this.

“Always knew I’d get my 30 seconds of fame some point in my life,” he tweeted. “Didn’t expect it to be for throwing cheese at a bewildered animal tho.”

Clearly, Elias underestimated the internet’s love for dogs, cheese, and throwing objects at living things.
