The adventures of Beansie

Recommended Posts

wallysmommy

If Beansie is sent out before the weekend, he will go on a road trip from South Mississippi to Fort Worth.  I'll make sure he gets a selfie at the casino hotel in Shreveport where he'll spend the night, and in the welcome center restroom.

@Henri205,  there's a statue of Elizabeth Montgomery in Salem?  Cool!

I used to watch Bewitched all the time and my cousin named her Siamese cat Samantha after Samantha Stephens.

Yeah, following from what @SilverBeach
said... Most of my close supporters know about FJ to some level. But there will be no explaining a Beansie.

That said - they are most likely to enjoy the idea of posing a strange little green bean demon to piss off a religious nut.

Collectively. Almost anyone I know would like that. With minimal backstory. Friends and family. And acquaintances.... Maybe not work.

Shoot, I’d just take him to the ladies room at Target. Is there anything more evil?

Maybe  next year? :bananna-demon:

It's not high-res enough to print, but big enough for some digital fun anyway.

I think I'm just going to go with "complicated inside joke I have with some friends..." :pb_lol:

I. Am. Cackling. Like a lunatic and there is absolutely no way I can explain this to my dear husband, who doesn’t even know of the existence of Fj, or fundies, or JillRod. 

Carry on, lovely ones, carry on. 

Is it wrong that I already feel a soft, sweet affection for our mascot?  I would pay actual cash money for a stuffie of our new friend. Really!

- Trip to Salem,  the Witch Museum and the memorial. If this goes on Beansie will go to Salem for Haunted Happenings in October. Maybe he’ll visit Elizabeth Montgomery’s Bewitched statue.

WT...Salem was part of  the  Sec One(7th grade) trip for my non-demonically beany off-spring. I would have demanded a selfie if I'd have known about that several years ago.

Sadly, it's not as cool in reality as it sounds in theory. It's pretty hideous and doesn't look like her at all.

And, it has caused discomfort among some Salem residents, who have been trying for decades to focus on the very sad history of the witch trials (and other, more positive and equally interesting history - check out the Peabody-Essex museum if you ever go there), rather than the cutesy side of being Witch City. It was put up as a commercial gimmick by TV Land network.

Sorry to be the downer here.

You couldn't help it. Beansie is at work here. Pray to Rufus for deliverance. 

(And yeah, I don't think kitschy witchy belongs in Salem.)

I think Beansie might have to be a bookmark in this book:

Four is Enough

Oh dear God in Heaven you guys.

I came here to say that Beansie could provide some temptation if he was sitting with someone on the "courting bench", but you guys have taken it much farther than that.

I can think of some interesting places in Baltimore to take Beansie, but another one of my fellow FJers is going to have to take the trip. 

How about the Block? There are still some strip joints down there.

Honfest? tight pants, beehive hairdos? Oh, wait. JIll might recognize her people there.

The Basilica? Can you IMAGINE? A Catholic Church?

Edgar Allan Poe's grave? Money and booze are left there regularly.

Babe Ruth birth place? Organized sports, y'all.

There are more....

Caitlin Daugherty of “Ask a Mortician” fame calls the phenomena of horrible events turning into tourist attractions “witch to kitsch,” after what happened to Salem—it’s something she talks about quite a bit. Another good example of this is what happened in popular culture surrounding the Titanic—an horrific disaster people seem to love. It makes one wonder about what horrible events in our lifetimes will be celebrated in this manner.

I love her books and YT channel. And I'm not at all comfortable with how the Titanic is handled. Too soon, people. Too soon.

If you have a Rod pic Beansie needs to be in, message it to me and I'll get it posted here. Looking for photos is more time-consuming than the Photoshop job at this point.

I want to ask Jill for a selfie with me, and just before she takes the shot, I unzip my modest jacket to show the Beansie logo on my t-shirt.  He's pointing his pitchfork towards Jill with the caption "I'm with stupid" underneath.

Now I wish Jill would actually get her own show.  Imagine people showing up and surreptitiously placing Beansie in the background to see how many times he appears on screen.  A satanic Easter egg, if you will.

Easter egg (media)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In computer software and media, an Easter egg is an intentional inside joke, hidden message or image, or secret feature of a work. It is usually found in a computer program, video game, or DVD/Blu-ray Disc menu screen. The name is used to evoke the idea of a traditional Easter egg hunt.[2]

Broadcast media

Unlike DVDs and computer games, broadcast radio and television programs contain no executable code. Easter eggs may still appear in the content itself, such as a hidden Mickey in a Disney film or a real telephone number instead of a 555 fictitious telephone number.
