Hummus War

Lebanon on Saturday claimed another victory in the continuing battle with Israel over which country can make the largest plate of the chickpea delicacy hummus -- with a 10-tonne broadside. More than 300 chefs set the new record for hummus, which the Lebanese say is their national dish despite Israeli claims, in the presence of a Guinness World Records representative who confirmed its weight at 10,452 kilograms.


Chick-peas get ground-up

in an alimentary war between

Lebanon & Israel, but just

where does the hummus go?

Which bank gets to bank it?

How long’s its shelf-life?
