First of all, here’s a funny video spotlighting the Israeli need to dip (l’nagev) their foods and their desire to ingest hummus in copious amounts (sorry that it’s only in Hebrew):
Binational Me: How funny was that? The guy with the three second rule about hummus falling on the table?
Israeli Friend: It’s a real rule. You have three seconds to scoop it up and after that it’s gross. You ever hear of it?
Binational Me: Of course. In America we have that rule too, but it’s five seconds. That’s why we’re all fatter.
