Q: What is it called when you kill a chickpea?
A: Hummuside (homicide).

Wikiepdia: Hummus
Hummus (/ˈhʊ.məs/ or /ˈhʌ.məs/; Arabic: حُمُّص‎) is a Levantine and Egyptian food dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas or other beans, blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. Today, it is popular throughout the Middle East (including Turkey), North Africa (including Morocco), and in Middle Eastern cuisine around the globe.
