“A spice thief had his own spices stolen. I guess you could say he had it cumin”

"Cumin” is sometimes punned as “coming.” Several punsters have sang “He had it cumin!” instead of “He had it coming!” from the song “Cell Block Tango,” in the musical Chicago.

“Heard a man died eating a Veggie Wrap, If you ask me he had it cumin” was posted on Twitter on November 25, 2012. “Did you hear about the flatmate who woke up to a #spicy toothbrush? He had it cumin” was posted on Twitter on August 16, 2017.

“A man stole some paprika from his friend, then his friend stole two spices from HIS cabinet. I guess you could say he had it cumin” was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on November 10, 2017.

“I did not see that cumin” is another cumin pun.


Wikipedia: Cumin
Cumin (/ˈkjuːmɪn/ or UK: /ˈkʌmɪn/, US: /ˈkuːmɪn/) (Cuminum cyminum) is a flowering plant in the family Apiaceae, native from the east Mediterranean to South Asia.

Its seeds (each one contained within a fruit, which is dried) are used in the cuisines of many different cultures, in both whole and ground form. It also has many uses as a traditional medicinal plant.
