"Falafel” sounds like “feel awful,” prompting the pun:
“I ate too much Middle Eastern food and now I falafel.”
“Clever pun. Now I falafel” was cited in a newsgroup in 2000. “I ate some bad hummus and now I falafel” was cited in a 2003 book. “I ate too much Middle Eastern food and now I falafel” was cited on Twitter on July 25, 2009.
Falafel (/fəˈlɑːfəl/; Arabic: فلافل, [fæˈlæːfɪl]) is a deep-fried ball or patty made from ground chickpeas, fava beans, or both. Falafel is a traditional Middle Eastern food, commonly served in a pita, which acts as a pocket, or wrapped in a flatbread known as lafa; “falafel” also frequently refers to a wrapped sandwich that is prepared in this way. The falafel balls are topped with salads, pickled vegetables, hot sauce, and drizzled with tahini-based sauces. Falafel balls may also be eaten alone as a snack or served as part of a meze tray (assortment of appetizers).

Christmas cracker jokes on us
Christmas cracker jokes are so formulaic that computers are now being used to churn out the groansome one-liners. But Christmas wouldn’t be the same without an awful gag shared with your loved ones, says Dominic Cavendish
