Beans Around the World

Do you remember the travelling gnome, who was made famous in the 2001
French film Amélie? Well, this is kind of like that, except with a can of S&W Black Beans.

It all started as a practical joke between friends that got out of control, way out of control. Thanks to the Interweb, the "Beans Around the World" can of S&W Black Beans (okay, technically it's not the same can, but who cares) has been to 515 different cities so far: Link - Thanks Forrest!

Hey!!!

It is not interweb but INTERTUBE.

ps: various associates including moi take a fode of a 'site' with a tube/tub/jar/pack of vegemite in the forefront. Started with the Pyramids 20 years ago,Last one is Macchu Piccu a few years ago but 515 places? That's organised.

Why these beans?

OMG you have to check out Gary Karp

It is a world wide movement beggining with a dorky modeling headshot found in a dumpster.

I originally stumbled across it at a gellery opening and was floored at what it had become.

Well, that is just plain awesome.
This probably isn't directly related, but the book Skinny Legs and All by Tom Robbins prominently features a can of beans that travels halfway around the world.
