Believe it or not...

Believe it or not, there is a "gentleman" at work who claims very strongly NOT to be a fan of Frank OR Bean. Now, I believe that people are entitled to their opinions, however, having never met Bean and perhaps having only briefly met Frank, I do believe that this is simply his being obstinate and desiring to be different from most everybody else who rather enjoy things that are small, warm, furry, charming and delightful.

Now, it just so happens that the said "gentleman" somewhat resembles the Star Wars character Obi-Wan Kenobi (the new one from the bad movies, not the old one from the good movies, though the new one is played by Ewan McGregor which almost makes up for the unfortunate existence of the films...). Though the "gentleman" only somewhat resembles the actual character of Obi-Wan, it just so happens that a Barbi sized action figure came out with the new movies and more closely resembles the "gentelman" than it does Mr. McGregor. Because of this, action figure Obi-Wan (who was a gift to the "gentleman") follows him about from job to job, gracing his desk and occasionally getting into mischief with a local Barbie or too.

As there are no Barbies currently about the work place, I thought that perhaps Obi-Wan was lonely and would enjoy some company from the two best companions around...

Oh, Obi-Wan! What handsome friends you have found!

The "gentleman" was not pleased.

Perhaps that is because Bean does somewhat appear to be lifting his leg on him.

However, this was not the intent but rather the way that the BEAN! sticker was designed, based on the delightful picture of his first bath! (see Stickers! post for a reminder, grandma Railey, and others who sometimes get confused about the internet machine, if you click on the word Stickers there in blue it will take you to that post...)

I am sad to report that when texted a picture of the new happy trio, the result was a wee bit irate "gentleman" storming up many flights of stairs and unceremoniously tearing Frank and Bean away and tossing them in the trash.

Well, c'est la vie. There is no accounting for taste, I suppose.

Obi-Wan shall simply have to resume his lonely existence with nothing but his light-saber for company. How very sad indeed.
