Humus is the brown or black organic part of the soil resulting from the partial decay of leaves and other matter... and what a better place to find humus than in a cemetery!
That was the source of inspiration for my latest website template, and it's for sale. All the info about it is in the home page, just click the logo at the end of the intro:

My wife likes humus, usually on crackers, personally I don't care for the stuff. Kinda looks like that equally weird stuff from Hawaii..poi except it's probably gone bad! I'll stick with cheese and crackers!

Humming humus is especially distracting and potentially scary.
Vibrating cheese is also upsetting. If it waits to begin vibrating after you have consumed it, this is always a forewarning of bad moments in one's future.
Always shoo away vermin before eating, especially if you never turn on the lights when eating.
The average level of your good health will be compromised and defeeted if you eat vermin's shoos!
I know, "It ALL Looks Good in the DARK!"

There is the old story about the Eskimos not wanting to eat Blue cheese, yet they put raw eggs under the ground and ate them several months later when they would have to be rotten!?
This was a story concerning two different cultures meeting one another and their basic different attitudes concerning just what is editable and what is not.
The two cultures were the Feench and the Eskimos, but then the French can have all the snails as far as I am concerned!
To each his own.

The original edible humus was made by fermenting garbanzo beans in the stomache of a dead goat, letting it absorb the flavor of the stomach acids.... I can see how the two aren't that different

YUM!

god, I think I chosen the wrong name for this, I didn't know that Humus was better known as food than as soil.

Hey Redcrow -- the name got all the attention, but I figured I should come back and say that the Flash looked really good.

Thanks for the feedback Duke, I really appreciate it. The name of the topic was designed to draw attention, but now that you match it with the second meaning of the word it makes not much sense LOL. How can a sauce belong to the ground? and who -for crap sake- would eat it? LMAO!! :P :D

Armando, don't you dare change the name! It's an attention getter (I looked because I think humus is disgusting), plus it has originality. Keep the name, Sweetie!

Awesome stuff! I know this is probably one of those things "if you have to ask the price you probably can't afford it" but I did anyway. LOL Send you an email Armando.

Oh no, I wasn't going to change the name of the topic, but if someone buys the template I gonna change it to the actual name and logo of the guy who bought it.

I called it Humus cause when I was a little boy I was digging a hole in my backyard, just for fun, I digged so deep that I found a white rock, appearently cal, well, I pulled the rock and below it there was a hole, it was strange, it was like if the ground was hollow. It was full of bugs and I scared and just put the white rock back and poured the sand back into the hole and ran scared LOL it was kinda funny.
Then in school I learned that the black matter inside the hole full of bugs was Humus, and the gears inside my head started spinning and I imagined how would be the Humus in a cemetery.

Our two most common fears are supposed to be what might be under the ground or under the water?
"Humus". Maybe what is left of humans after decomposition? Sort of sounds like it, as the bugs and worms "Hum Us"!
Yes, they are so happy eating that they are humming as they eat!
A natural, workman's hum.

You know jim, your post remembered me something a friend told me once. It turns out that this friend's uncle is a government's employee who diggs out corpses from the common pit to relocate them or incinerate them. Well, there is a story running among those who have that horrible job that is, that there is an emerald-green maggot in those common pits, since a common pit (at least in mexico) is a place where all the un-identified corpses go there is some serious rotting there, so according to this guys the maggot is so amazingly toxic that when the guys who are digging the pit see one of these they just rush out of the hole faster than a fart!
According to some of this people the maggot can kill you almost instantly if you smell it (even with the organic gas mask) and this guys have some serious protection equipment, they use tyvek suit, plus a 3M organic gas mask with visor, 2 pair of gloves on each hand, special rubber boots and some duct tape to seal the openings.

It sounds like King Tut's Curse, guano germs infecting lungs of the living.
My old costume "Grabstein Feinsmukker" was a creature feeding upon the battlefield dead, subterraineon-style during World War Two.
I won first place with it good for $300.oo!
My house has many of my old costumes and such things on display here.
