The phrases "I like cheese" is most precisely used to point out a comment that was relevant some time in the past but is not relevant in the current context. It evolved over time to also point out any non-sequitur comment.

This was started during a discussion between two students at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN. The one student (from Minnesota) called the other student (from Wisconsin) a "cheese head". The conversation continued on to other topics and the "cheese head" comment was long forgotten. Several minutes and topics later, the student from Minnesota (likely feeling the pangs of guilt for the forgotten insult) turned to the student from Wisconsin and said, "I'm sorry I called you a cheese head. I like cheese."

Travis: I hope Ron Paul wins.

(dramatic pause while everybody looks at Travis)

Matt: I like cheese.

This is a throwback to an old Looney Tunes cartoon.
There was a cartoon where a group of cats were scared of fighting a mouse. One of the cats says, "Are we men or are we mice?"
A smaller cat tugs on his leg and looks at him coyly and says (in a very high pitched voice) "I like cheese!"
