    Really? I didn't know that.

    That was a semi-joke. Who knows who invented it (or falafel for that matter)? But the Israelis, Lebanese and Palestinians all take credit for it. The Lebanese are particularly bitter about the Israelis' claims.
    The Israelis eat more per capita though, that's indisputable. They're crazy about it. They have hummus stands like Chicago has hot dog stands. For everybody else, hummus is a starter, for the Israelis it's the main dish.

    The first 25% of Adam Sandler's "Don't Mess with the Zohan" (you have to be Jewish) takes place in Israel and is nothing but one long joke about hummus.

    I can relate. Pennsylvania and Maine are engaged in a fierce battle over who invented Makin' Whoopie. Maine even introduced legislation in an attempt attempt to silence the Brave Sons of Penn's Woods.

    And 21-year-old Josh Graupera of Lancaster got so worked up after hearing about Maine’s move that he and a friend organized a rally in downtown Lancaster attended by 100 people, including one person who carried a sign “Give Me Whoopie, or Give Me Death.”

    Obama told the world that the United States is prepared to use its military to defend what he called "our core interests" in the Middle East: U.S. access to hummus, and the claim that it was invented by an American.

    The circle of this thread is now complete!

    In response to the President's claim Michele Bachmann noted that the founding fathers defeated the British on a diet of hummus and complained the President failed to note this important fact in his statement proving yet again that he is not truly an American.
