In the most unlikely places...

Sometimes I'll find something amusing where I would least expect it.

In need of a couple of bits from the supermarket, I risked life and limb and ventured into Tesco last night, the penultimate Friday before Christmas, and found to my astonishment wasn't that busy. Aside from the things I went in for, I also picked up a couple of varieties of houmous on special offer. It's safe to say I'm quite partial to houmous.

What's so funny about that? Not even a tenuous link between houmous and humorous? No, it was the packaging that made me smile.

Firstly, the sleeve said "to share". Yeah right, like that's going to happen.

Then I spotted it also said "eat within two days of opening". Are you kidding me? I'd be surprised if the lid goes back on at all...

Mmmm...Houmous.

I like the Israeli variety and the coriander and lemon.
You are supposed to put the lid back...on an empty tub?

Yes, I always enjoy the challenge of finding something to dip into it. Hey, Careful Now!!!

Hmmm. Houmous with caramelised onion, houmous with pesto and houmous with lemon and coriander. All absolutely delicious and not a trace of evidence that any of them made it as far as the fridge...

Here (in the good ole US of A) they spell it humus, which cuts the vowels in half and that is always a good thing. Too many vowels bring on my dyslexia.

To be honest Steph, I wasn't too sure and looked it up, only to find about four different spellings! I played it safe and went with what they printed on the sleeve(s).

There's probably a vowel movement joke to be had there somewhere too, but I won't stoop that low.

Too late...
