Conversation between me and my SO:

SO: (calling on cell from grocery store) So I could only find one can of chickpeas.

Me: Well if to dollar store only has one, can you buy another can at the grocery store?

SO: No, I'm at the grocery store already. The dollar store didn't have any.

Me: That sucks.

SO: Yeah. Apparently there's a shortage right now because a lot of the people that produce them are dead.

Having done some research, I'm in a position to say that this conversation makes less sense than I initially thought. According to this document (PDF), India is by far the world's largest chickpea producing country. Are people there killing each other more than usual?
