Captain Beany from the planet Beanus
May 22, 2010 5:24 AM   Subscribe

Eccentric or not? Captain Beany is a Welsh eccentric who loves baked beans, the dish so beloved of the British.

He has changed his name and now wanders around in a superhero costume farting at people. Here he is in costume demonstrating an invention with similar intent.

His house is now a museum devoted to the bean

He stood in the 2010 election and did not come last in his constituency.

He trademarked "credit crunch" as the name of a chocolate bar and Selfridges in London ended up paying him for the IP.

In 2005 he was convicted on fraudulently claiming income support benefit.

If you insist, here is a video of him (out of costume) "amusing" people on a train.

Well, when I was a boy, my daddy sat me on his knee and he told me... He told me Many Things. And he said 'Son, there's a lot of things in this world that you're gonna have NO USE FOR. And when you get blue and you've lost all yer dreams, there's nothing like a camp fire and a can of beans.'

How does a man take a bubble bath?

He eats beans for dinner.

Beans, beans, the magical fruit!
The more you eat, the more you toot,
The more you toot, the better you feel -
So eat beans at every meal.

Beans, beans, good for your heart!
The more you eat, the more you fart,
The more you fart, the better you feel -
So eat beans at every meal.

BEANS ARE NOT MAGICAL NOR ARE THEY A FRUIT

Apparently, the Australians are fond of them, too. Mother Goose
Baked beans on toast never fails.

Welsh eccentric? That's a bit redundant, isn't it?

This guy lives in the same town as me. I was seriously considering voting for him the general election just for a laugh. In the end I didn't, but it did please me to see that he beat the UKIP candidate.
