Lebanon Raises the Ante:10 Tons of Hummus

The battle between Lebanon and Israel over who can make the largest pot of hummus continues: the Lebanese have more than doubled the previous record with 10 tons worth. There's video at the link. Ha'aretz has the chutzpah to run the headline, "Peas Process Takes a Leap Forward as Lebanon Mashes Israel's Hummus Record."

Earlier rounds here, and here. Let's hope this is the only war between Israel and Lebanon anytime soon.
