I don't get it

We've discovered a new favorite movie: Ernst Lubitsch's To Be or Not to Be (thanks as always to TCM. ), a 1942 satire of the German occupation of Poland. (For some reason, that sounds bad, but trust me, it's hysterical.)

There's a key joke in the movie, though, that I just don't get.
They named a brandy after Napoleon, they made a herring out of Bismarck, and the Fuhrer is going to end up as a piece of cheese!

Can someone explain it to me?
