News, but not the serious kind
Hummus a few bars, for pita’s sake…
Blog Guy, I heard some Lebanese dudes set a new record for the largest plate of hummus over the weekend. Give us details!
I mean, I could set a world record for making my famous garlic nutmeg dip, if it could also be known as pizza, aluminum, wolverines, canasta and Belgium.
I must admit you raise a fair point, Blog Guy. Now that Lebanon holds the record, maybe they should get together with whomever used to hold the record, and settle on one way to spell Hummus.
Do you know who previously held the hummus hamos, houmous, hommos, hommus, hummos, hummous humus record, Blog Guy?
Uh, from our photo archive it appears that would be Israel. You wanna take a stab at negotiating that one?
