I’m told that many Swiss-Germans are stockpiling cheese and sausages in anticipation of a new COVID lockdown — planning, in other words, for a Wurst-Käse scenario.

You misinterpreted what you heard:
Some say "es ist mir Wurst" which means I don't care and others say "was für ein Käse" which means what nonsense.

Neither is meant to be funny. What is funny about "I don't give a hoot"? Nothing, it just expresses the same as "es isch mir Wurscht".
