“What’s the difference between a garbanzo bean and a chickpea?” (joke)

"Chickpea” sounds like “chick pee,” prompting the adult joke:

Q: What’s the difference between a garbanzo bean and a chickpea?”
A: Nobody pays to have a garbanzo bean on their face.


The joke has been cited in print since at least 2007. “What’s the difference between a chickpea and a lentil? Well, I wouldn’t pay a hundred pounds to have a lentil on my face” was cited on Twitter on December 20, 2013.
