It's pretty sad when some corporate marketer has to tell a company to change its name in order to avoid associating their product with an entire region of the planet.



You eat Hummus? That's even MORE sad. I'm just sayin.

Dude. Your ancestors ate, like, buffalo ass and stuff. I mean, they'd cut the still-beating heart out of a stag and bite into it. And you're bitching about some #$&%ing chickpeas with lemon juice? :coffee: ROFL

I've tried it. It's okay for a bite or 2. Then I realize it's ****ing garbanzo beans.

It's a Levantine Arab dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas, blended with tahini, olive oil, human ass, lemon juice, salt and garlic.

You should try making your own, I make my own hummus and it's a million times better.

Get a can of chick peas, some lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, bit of sesame seeds (optional) and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Put into food processer and puree. Then mmm mmmmm.

No, hummus is the yellow shit. The green shit's tabouli... basically chopped parsley, wheat bulghur--whatever the #$*% that is, diced tomato, onion, lemon juice. Not bad, but it's an acquired taste.

Ha! the Plains indians ate buffalo. I dont' think they ate the ass, though, I think they just cut that part off and saved it for those cold lonely winter nights...

Do you add the human ass before or after the lemon juice? :huh:

I bet it's good. LW used to sneer at hummus until we ordered some at California Pizza Kitchen, where they make it so fresh it comes out with a little oil separation to it. I think they put a lot of tahini in it, which is what she likes. We order it every time we go to Foxwoods.
