Beans Lots Of Beans Lots Of Beans Etc

Seriously, what’s with the blue beans everywhere? Either we’ve got some alien with a stomach upset going round crapping small metallic blue poops, or (and let’s face it, this is more likely) we’re being advertised at. Tis the season after all. Those enigmatic posters with just a web address on them. Mysterious logos and curious stunts. And how many people will investigate?

I guess there’s a logic to doing it at university. It’s full of people who are inherently curious and are probably more likely to check on weirdness than the average, distracted, normal person with a job and everything. How efective is it though, I wonder?

I don’t usually investigate these things, mostly because I have tendency to be fairly immune to advertising (in the sense that I often have no idea what an advert I actually like is trying to sell me) so perhaps I am missing out. Maybe if I follow those bastarding blue beans I wil be rewarded with a solid gold elephant or a helicopter. And all the hundreds of cynical students who don’t follow it will never have these things, making do with iPods and new shoes.

So lead on, blue beans! Take me to your leader! Unless you really are alien poo in which case, I’ve changed my mind…


Apparently not the source of blue coffee… but who the hell would spend ages painting beans blue? Get a real job!

    Yeah I saw those too and wondered what that was all about?!

    04 Oct 2006, 13:06

  3. You know why you keep seeing blue beans?

    Everyone else had the red ones. ;)

  5. See, it’s an interesting coincidence that you bring this up, because I actually have an IPod, made from new shoes.

    04 Oct 2006, 18:46

  6. Yesterday Mark said he saw you looking “old and respectable”. I just thought you’d like to know what you’re being accused of.

    04 Oct 2006, 20:22

  7. I have new shoes made by an army of Ipods.

    04 Oct 2006, 22:38

  8. I’m disappointed I didn’t pick up on the Magical Trevor reference earlier. :(

    05 Oct 2006, 00:32

  9. Sam and Natalie I’m jealous.
    Luke For shame, it was there for the taking.
    Helen He lies. I have never been respectable. I am Mel And Kim.

    Boz There are reasons. Trust me.

    Beans Lots Of Beans Lots Of Beans

    Is this a reference to the revered Magical Trevor?

  11. Nick Howes

    Looks like rat poisin.

    05 Oct 2006, 16:16

  12. Nick Howes

    Poisin? What the hell. Poison.

    05 Oct 2006, 16:16

  13. Charlotte

    Well, first, if you wanna spell the ‘p’ word correctly, it’s ‘poison’ OK? And what sort of bans are we talkin’ ‘bout, here?

    05 Oct 2006, 16:37

  14. Yeah ‘Nick Howes’ listen to Charlotte, she clearly knows what she’s talking about and is a welcome contributor to ALL BLOGS.

    05 Oct 2006, 16:54

  15. Nick Howes

    Charlotte is not a real human.

    05 Oct 2006, 17:21

  16. Charlotte

    Yes, I am! How did you come up with that idea?

    05 Oct 2006, 17:50

  17. what blue beans?

    05 Oct 2006, 20:45

  18. I’m sure that Charlotte is far less strange than this “Nick Howes” character, Nat. Oh, and your birthday present has arrived back here, so I’ll leave it at the fort ready for your visit!

    06 Oct 2006, 07:03

  19. Charlotte

    Thanks, Helen x

    06 Oct 2006, 07:09

  20. Yeay! You will be around too, I hope? And Holly! I guess ‘Nick Howes’ could pop in too.

    06 Oct 2006, 10:49

  21. Nick Howes

    Who is this “Natalie Barton” character?

    That’s Numberwang.

    Have you dissected one of these beans? Maybe they’re full of jelly.

    06 Oct 2006, 11:28

  23. i am made of jelly!

    you see?

    06 Oct 2006, 14:08

  24. Charlotte

    If you were made out of jelly I think it would be pretty hard to move!

    06 Oct 2006, 16:38

  25. Nick Howes

    Charlotte is absolutely right, Luke. What were you thinking?

    06 Oct 2006, 16:42

  26. omnibean

    if anyone finds a bean and crings it to me when all is revealed I will give them free stuff….

    06 Oct 2006, 17:18

  27. omnibean

    you could even bring it rather than cring it…

    06 Oct 2006, 17:19

  28. Charlotte

    Good idea. And are blue beans REAL? xx

    06 Oct 2006, 17:37

  29. Nick: I was thinking of Onken, naturally. ;)

    07 Oct 2006, 01:57

  30. Charlotte

    I wonder why no-one’s ever on here anymore. Luke added his last comment at nearly-two-in-the-morning and no-one’s replied since, except me! Too strange..

    07 Oct 2006, 18:50

  31. Maybe you should consider disconnecting yourself from the internet for FORTY GOD DAMNED YEARS.

    07 Oct 2006, 22:38

  33. Cos the rest of us like to use that opportunity to to exciting things like, eating, sleeping, talking to real live people, and enjoying the sunshine.

    08 Oct 2006, 09:57

  34. Charlotte

    Not to annoy you, Helen, but what d’you mean by ‘talking to real live people?’ xxx

    08 Oct 2006, 10:44

  35. Seriously, is there nothing WB can do to block “her” IP address? Ban the trolls!

    08 Oct 2006, 20:44

  36. 5!

    08 Oct 2006, 23:28

  37. Alicia

    Life’s too short to be serious all the time, Benjamin. Charlottes doing no harm at all, in fact I think she’s rather sweet.

    09 Oct 2006, 06:38

  38. Would you be the same person as “Emma” who commented in this thread nine minutes later? Of course you would.

    Go and get a life.

    I wish people would just try and get along, surely the whole point of blogging is to add a bit of fun to everyday life. From the little I’ve seen so far of Warwick blogs there seem to be some very uptight people around here…..what’s the point in getting angry?

    09 Oct 2006, 10:39

  40. I think it’s just annoying when you see a serious conversation in the comments of a blog and then you see:

    Hi, I wore pink today at school! How is everyone? xxxx

    The poor little lamb thinks this is some kind of chatroom.

    09 Oct 2006, 10:44

  41. Indeed. Bless. And my apologies for sounding harsh earlier, I was spending copious amounts of time with my boyfriend which tends to make me somewhat bitchy.
    But the point is, this isn’t a chat room. We may use it for chat, but most of us will come on here and see what’s going on then piss off again straight away, we don’t just sit around waiting for replies unless we are exceedingly bored. Also quite a lot of us know each other in real life as well, because the purpose of this place is as an online community for people who attend the same uni. We quite like visitors, but do worry when they seem to get upset when we don’t reply withing a few mins.

    09 Oct 2006, 19:49

  42. Blue alien poo might have a leader, a nice and non-poo-ey one.

    Just in case, you know, you change your mind.

    12 Oct 2006, 19:40

  43. Charlotte

    Come on, Rohini, everyone knows aliens aren’t real! Ha, ha!
    PS: However, my friend once said she thought she was being watched.
    PPS: I love your name! x

    13 Oct 2006, 18:03

  44. I know what the blue beans mean MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!

    14 Oct 2006, 02:54

  45. Charlotte

    What DO they mean (MWAHAHAHA!!!!) x

    14 Oct 2006, 07:43

  46. Carly

    beware the magic beans.

    maybe someone traded their pink cow for it. plant the magic beans hol- you know you must!!!

    14 Oct 2006, 16:18

  47. Charlotte

    Ha, good one!
    PS: If you mean that story ‘jack and the beanstalk’ his cow WASNT pink! x

    14 Oct 2006, 16:36

  48. Alicia

    Oh yes he WAS!

    15 Oct 2006, 09:14

  49. Charlotte

    Oh no he WASNT! It was brown (I think), but even if it wasn’t, you DON’T GET PINK COWS!
    Bye 4 now

  50. find out what the beans from whence this conversation grew are all about at www.studentbeans.com. I know it is very annoying when people spam comment bits with websites so they can make money but “this is different” (hehe, seriously it is). Just for students, costs nothing and it means you can go paintballing for six quid for example!

    16 Oct 2006, 11:37

  51. I wish I’d found that site earlier, I probably could have got lots of cheap Onken off it.

    PS 50 combos!

    16 Oct 2006, 23:51

  52. I have written much better articles which got 2 or 3 comments. I guess I can’t dictate to people what they want to read… or rather comment on.

    17 Oct 2006, 00:52

  53. People feel far more able to comment on less intellectual entries. We don’t fear looking bad so much!

    17 Oct 2006, 18:53

  54. Chralotte


    17 Oct 2006, 19:20

  55. Alicia

    Yes true, but also after a long hard day of intellectualism it’s just nice to indulge in some lighthearted chit chat.

    17 Oct 2006, 20:26

  56. Charlotte

    Yes, also true. Very good xx

    17 Oct 2006, 20:46

  57. Fair enough, if I recall rightly, the previous most commented entry on here was the time I declared myself pope… mmm.

    17 Oct 2006, 23:17

  58. Pope… beans… same difference.

    18 Oct 2006, 01:09

  59. Charlotte

    What’s the pope got to do with beans?

    18 Oct 2006, 07:16

  60. Alicia

    I love Hollys blog, she’s the bestest.

    18 Oct 2006, 07:32

  61. Ugh, you lot have the attention span of a gnat (between you!). Look at the goddamn website and talk about that! :p
