“I did not see that cumin”

"I did not see that cumin”—like the saying “I did not see that coming”—is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. “As a result of the oregano post, we had thyme to do these things, or at least rosemary said so.  But, then again, didn’t you see that cumin?” was posted on the newsgroup alt.humor.puns on October 7, 1998. “I could see that cumin...” was posted on the newsgroup free.uk.talk.london on April 13, 2002.

“Like a blind man at a spice rack, I didn’t see that cumin” was posted on Twitter by Shuffle-T on June 1, 2014. “I just got hit in the back of the head by a spice jar. I didn’t see that cumin” was posted on Twitter by James Baker on July 19, 2018.

“A spice thief had his own spices stolen. I guess you could say he had it 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 to a territory including Middle East and stretching east to India. Its seeds – each one contained within a fruit, which is dried – are used in the cuisines of many cultures in both whole and ground form. Although cumin is thought to have uses in traditional medicine, there is no high-quality evidence that it is safe or effective as a therapeutic agent.
