Wake up and smell the hummous!

I don't know what people are freaking out about.

There is a lot of hummous in the Middle East. But all it is is chickpeas (they are also known as garbanzo beans) with tahini (sesame seed paste), and good dose of olive oil and garlic plus some lemon. That's it! Yes, you just eat it as is! It's not scary. It's delicious. Eat with some toasted pita bread. You've probably had it before and enjoyed it. It tangy and tart--cheap to boot! And now that's it's been elected by an overwhelming majority people are freaking out! Relax people! It's just the same old hummous! Smooth, creamy democracy. Consumed by the truckload on liberal arts school campuses.

I mean it wasn't like this hummous came from nowhere. It's slowly been slowly catching on in America's kitchens. And then suddenly it gets elected and it's like the world is coming to an end! They make humous in factories now. It's mainstream! Wake up!
