User avatarEleven today

Let’s take a moment to remember that it was eleven years ago today that Kev made the first ever post to the Beans.

Much has happened since then. Because of his very busy lifestyle it was also, sadly, Kev’s last post to the site, but in the decade that’s passed since then I have posted quite a lot and Ian has reliably turned out his own personal brand of things without a break, so between us we’ve more or less kept the flag flying.

    I wish I hadn’t commented on it twice. I did come out with a lot of shit back in the day, didn’t I?

  • We all did. In the early days of the Beans I seem to remember you turned out a lot of static website pages full of stuff as well as blog posts. I think this might be your most worthless contribution from those great days.

    I do spout a fair amount of nonsense but on the ratio of fair to none there is significantly less than 2006 Ian. He needs to take a long look in the mirror.

  • I’m not sure that would help. I imagine he’d like that. He’d probably write a blog post about it.

  • It would be a static page, with a picture of a mirror, and underneath six hundred lines of text all saying, “mirrormirroryoureawinner!” over and over again.

    What a knob.

  • I know. I’m glad we dissolved him in a sort of viscous liquid and replaced him with you. You’re very sensible.

    Thank Jerry Loinsford and the Loinsford Academy we don’t have to deal with that guy anymore. I’m going to sit down with a cup of hot sensible and read a newspaper.

  • Excellent. There’s a good chap. Stout fellow.

    I enjoyed that. In old books people sometimes call other people “stout fellow” when they approve of them. I intend to do more of this.

    I’m very happy if you intend to bring it back. You should bring it back with bells on, and possibly brass knobs. In old books people sometimes referred to things as having “brass knobs” on. I do not think that this was concerning male genitalia.
