Assunto:  as cheesy as it sounds
 
Mensagem:  Teacher, I also thought of "cafona".  "Cheesy" has come to mean many things.  It's cheesy, to me, for someone to talk loudly into his cell phone as if saying, "Look at me.  I am important.  Listen to the business call I just got."  "Cheesy" is not paying one's fair share of a restaurant bill.  "Cheesy" is buying plastic flowers to take to the cemetery.  "Cheesy" is lying at the cinema in order to get a discounted ticket one doesn't deserve.  "Cheesy" is asking EMB people to write an essay for one's high school English class instead of writing it oneself.  "Cheesy" is taking a lady to a formal dance in a 1941 Volkswagen that is missing the windshield and backseat.  "Cheesy" is giving a boyfriend a present that one receives from another boyfriend. 

On the other hand,a cheesy pizza is a good thing!
