“The Black Eyed Peas can sing us a tune, but the chick peas can only hummus one”

"Hummus” can sound like the words “hum us.” and there are jokes. One joke compares chickpeas to the Black Eyed Peas (an American musical group). 

“The Black Eyed Peas can sing us a tune, but the chick peas can only hummus one” was posted to the Puns Open Forum on Facebook by George Cruz on April 7, 2012. “The Black Eyed peas can sing us a tune, but the Chick Peas can hummus one” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on APril 14, 2021.

“I eat hummus when I don’t know the words” is a related joke.


Wikipedia: Hummus
Hummus (/ˈhʊməs/, /ˈhʌməs/; Arabic: حُمُّص‎, ‘chickpeas’; full Arabic name: ḥummuṣ bi-ṭ-ṭaḥīna Arabic: حمص بالطحينة‎, ‘chickpeas with tahini’ ) is a Middle Eastern dip, spread, or savory dish made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with tahini, lemon juice, and garlic. The standard garnish in the Middle East includes olive oil, a few whole chickpeas, parsley, and paprika.
