While knowing the difference between legumes and pulses is important, this toolkit will mostly refer to all legumes and pulses as "beans."

From Uncle Sam's lips to your ears.

Something I just learned is that lupins are in the legume family, and produce a lupin bean. I have never seen lupins as anything other than decorative flowers.

It seems Dennis Moore might have bean on to something.

It's dated April, but we just got it today to send to our sponsors (food banks, schools, childcare, summer food, etc).

I submitted it because it really is a solid resource, and also the "What are beans?" joke.  Never expected green!

Bean Bay Beans.  They're the beaniest.

For what it's worth, the meme about the difference between a garbanzo bean and a chickpea, with the punchline that "Donald Trump has never had a garbanzo bean on his face" has always annoyed me. Because garbanzo beans and chickpeas are the very same thing, which short-circuits the joke.

First time I ever saw that joke, the feed line was "what's the difference between a chickpea and a lentil?" and that works much better, since they are actually different things.

I will allow the beans to pass through me, and when they are gone, I will turn the inner eye to see their path.  Only farts will remain.

The joke is that the correct answer is "nothing", which is then refuted by assigning one half of the equation a different, word-play, interpretation that causes an inequality.

But that undermines the entire concept of jokes that question the difference between two things. If the answer is "nothing", then there is no joke.

There has to be some element of difference for the joke to work, as it does when the joke is posed in the form of questioning the difference between a chickpea and a lentil. Because they have similarities, but are not the same.

A "what's the difference" joke between two things that are identical cannot work, because both of the objects of the joke are identical.

There's no difference between garbanzo beans and chickpeas; they're just different names for the same thing.

The joke isn't about the difference.  That's a ruse to make the listener unprepared for the punchline.  The joke is the word-play.

I'm reminded of a time when some people I know had seen the episode of South Park that suggested Kanye West enjoys relationships with fish.

So, one of my colleagues posed me the question, "do you like fish sticks?"

And I said, "do you mean fish fingers?"

Because that's what we call the equivalent product in the UK.

He tried to pose the same question in a few different manners before realising I was not going to say that I like fish dicks.

That's it. It's a joke that doesn't work for the same reasons.

I'm beginning to believe, however, that I may be putting too much effort into Fark :-/

Thank you Subby.

I bought a bag of dry chickpeas on a whim/pandemic panic, and had no idea how to deal with them properly.  I think I might cook some this weekend to add to salads, like they suggest on page 7.

The USDA isn't f*cking around when it comes to feeding people.

/And if I have hard boiled eggs on that salad I can enjoy epic tooting.

I was kinda hoping they'd get into scientific names of bean plants

While I didn't quite know all that, who doesn't know how to do beans?
I have dried pinto and black beans, lentils and peas.
I have canned black, kidney and garbanzo beans.
I have canned refried beans, pinto and black.
I have frozen peas and green beans.

Cheap, long shelf life, easy and delicious.
Just add a carrot, an onion maybe a turkey leg, ham hock or smoked pork neck bone and you have an awesome soup.
Fry up with some sliced beef, chicken or lengua and you have burrito filling.
Make a dip, make a pie, make bread...
WTF do people not understand?

Yeah, yeah, I sound poor, fat and like I fart a lot, but oddly enough none of those apply. *shrug*

Also, you can't ask for the difference between a chickpea and a lentil, because there *is* a difference that's explainable and it's more than likely The question receiver will make an attempt to answer, not knowing it's the setup to a joke.

Have you ever heard a "what's the difference" joke before when the two things compared are different names for the same thing? I don't think I have.
