Whenever I hear ‘Tahini’ I somehow superimpose in my brain the last line from the 1978 seminal hit from the B-52s, Rock Lobster,
"There goes a dog-fish
chased by a cat-fish
in flew a sea robin
watch out for that piranha
there goes a narwhal
here comes a bikini whale!”
Bikini whales may or may not carry salmonella, but Tahini keeps appearing with salmonella, probably from the sesame seeds.
