Vote For Captain Beany!

By Wyatt Earp | May 2, 2010

And you folks think Ron Paul is bad?

A British man who calls himself “Captain Beany” – complete with a bean-themed uniform and x-ray specs – is running for Parliament this year. I am pretty sure the man is serious. Now, normally I would dismiss this knucklehead as being a total loon, but if he can do something about Britain’s continual change from democracy to radical Islamic Republic, he’ll get my support. Besides, I don’t think radical Islamists like baked beans. Flatulence is a sin, and it scares away the 72 virgins.

That being said, I still cannot decide if this story is funny :

Captain Beany, a lurid orange baked bean superhero, hopes to blow a wind of change through parliament at Britain’s imminent general election. The reigning Greatest British Eccentric, who zooms about in a cape and x-ray laser specs, reckons voters are sick of politicians — and need a flatulent superhero to sort them out.

Beany — born Barry Kirk, 55 years old and a former computer operator — is a man-sized baked bean: the tinned haricot beans in tomato sauce beloved by Britons and reputed to induce wind.

“The wind of change is coming, I can smell it in the air!” he told AFP at his campaign headquarters — the Red Lion pub. “You can sense the election fever, you can feel it in your bean sauce!”

Meh. He’s still gotta be better than Obama.

    Both named “Barry”, both men of “color”, both seeking to appear middle of the road (when they’re not) .
    I think this guy has a future in politics

    I’m having a hard time thinking of someone who would be much worse than Obama.
