As the Pouring Beans Health and Safety Officer, it has come to my attention that this site has been running for almost a year now and we are yet to have a fire drill.

In the event that this website catches fire, it is important that everyone knows what to do, where to find their nearest fire exit and how to close their browser window quickly and safely.

Imagine the horror if you were trapped in the Beans, the navigation bar ablaze, smoke coming out of the search box, and your only escape was through the Old Beans and down the Character Hatch™. It doesn’t bear thinking about.

Please take some time to familiarise yourself with the fire exit signs so you know how to leave the website in an emergency.


Furthermore, at 11am on Saturday, we will have a fire drill. When you hear the fire alarm sounding, please make your way calmly to your nearest emergency exit and assemble outside on the Google homepage. The fire alarm is easily recognisable as it plays the ear-splitting sound of some baked beans being tipped out of a can.

Thank you.

    I’m stood outside in the car park at muster point 3. Where are you guys?

  • I looked for you but couldn’t see you. Were you wearing your fluorescent safety tabard?

    I saw him but I thought he was the fuzz and ran back inside to flush my illegal collection of Spanish shoe horns down the John.

  • How did you flush them down your brother?

    I coated them in coffee and told them that they’d keep him awake through another long work – filled, baby loving day.
