This I Believe #4

...that mizithra cheese is actually the hip, "urban" version of the better-known mithra cheese.  The name mizithra was formed from mithra by the addition of the hiphopifying infix -iz-, -izn- (c.f. hizouse, shiznit).  The origins of the name of mithra cheese are obscure, but a connection with the ancient mystery cult cannot be ruled out.
