antiquarian dealers = really old recipe books on hummus, possibly of middle eastern origin in good condition minus the pita crumbs

It's a shame how much a simple olive oil stain will reduce the value of an old cookbook.

if I said the hummus "joke" was funny, I'd be implying that it was once funny

There are ^no hummus jokes. These are simply hummus statements intended to educate those who are ignorant to the chickpea.

dunno how you hummus losers don't bore yourselves. it's. so. fucking. tedious.

I understand how you may find hummus to be boring... At times such as these you must blend in something exotic into the chickpeas like garlic or red pepper to jazz up the boring plain flavor.

Personally i find the hummus commentary to be very interesting and thought provoking. Some fantastic recipes have been posted and it's nice to see that others also share in my undying love for the chickpea.

And in regards to this post, I am very excited about this upcoming book event. I hope I may find an art book with images to frame. And you know what kinda images I need. *hint* (tan in color)

it's you I find boring, silly

I am rather boring. I won't deny it... But the hummus I cook is exciting as hell! You should see how all the ladies come around when my food processor starts buzzing. It's like some sort of siren call of the modern era.

FACT: At a lot of art openings and events, one indeed does find the following items to be rather common.
-red wine.
-goatees.
-interesting eyeglasses
-cut up veggies like celery and baby carrots.
-hummus.

If you do not realize this to be factual then you have not attended many art things.

I may not be a starving artist, but I sure act like one when they bust out the hummus.

I often find it to be customary to compliment the gallery owner that I enjoyed the wine and hummus, for on at least 2 occasions the gallery owner said I could take the leftovers home! Which is what I did, and lemme tell you, I had an afterhours party at my place that night that was EPIC.

one thing is clear: there are sad people in the world who find the mere mention of "hummus" to be HEELARIOUS

Legumes are one of my favourite food groups.

Hummus is a legume?
Fascinating.
