What's in that recipe?

Some recent Engrish.com gems:

[LINK] (Can we send these to Dubya?)


Yes, poking fun at Japanese typos. Not even commenting on how bad my attempt at Japanese would be.

LOL. Egyptian Homos served with Fava Beans. I thought the same thing you did before I read the comment and link underneath the pic. Need a sound effect for that comment, that freaky slurping sound that Hannibal makes after his quote.

Both other one wouold make a nice "gag" gift. (Pun intended).

ROTFLMAO at the Egyptian homos. Do I have to be bi to try 'em?
And the Chokies. OMG. This is comedy, girl. Sheer comedy.
Blueberry, you are too much. Such fun to come here.

They are trying to spell "hummus", which is something we go through a lot of at our house. Usually it's made with garbanzo beans (chick peas, those round beans popular at salad bars) but the Egyptians might make it different ;-)

We sell Holy Land products at my store. Homos or Hummus is made from garbonzo beans/chick peas and tahini plus spices. And yes every package say Homos. Long standing joke there.

As someone who actually knows exactly how it should be pronounced ("Hummus"; "Homos" is not even close):

At the risk of being banned from this forum forever - - -
- I bet that product was named by an American... :-)
