Fight him man-to-man if he thinks he's so tough, right?

I'd wait until he got nailed up again, doing his S&M fetish thing, and then just whale on 'im. Oh, can't punch back? Too bad, fucking long hair.

There needs to be some punctuation editing: "Christ, VHS?!"

I'm taking notes, Daldo did the soundtrack AND got a blurb on the cover. And what's the significance of beans?

It seems there is some historical precedent for bean throwing.

In Roman/Greek culture:

https://www.encyclopedia.com/humanities ... -mythology

“Some ancient lore linked beans with the dead. The Greek philosopher Pythagoras thought that the souls of the dead resided within beans, while the Romans dreaded the lemures—the evil spirits of the dead—who brought misfortune on a home by pelting it with beans at night.”

In Japanese culture:

http://www.deepkyoto.com/bean-pelting-d ... -in-kyoto/

“Setsubun is an old festival for seeing out the hardships of winter and welcoming in the spring, symbolized in the ritual act of throwing beans at mask clad devils… 鬼は外福は内! (“oni wa soto! fuku wa uchi!” – “devils out, and good luck in!“) people cry while pelting their lucky beans till the demonic forces beat a retreat.”

In English culture:

https://www.tmz.com/2007/04/26/hugh-pop ... ked-beans/

“Hugh Grant has reportedly been arrested in London over an allegation that he assaulted a photographer with a family-sized tub of baked beans, among other things…”

“The actor, according to British press reports, allegedly kicked Ian Whittaker three times as Whittaker attempted to photograph him near his west London home. Whittaker alleges Grant then picked up a large carton of baked beans and threw them at the lensman, leaving him "bruised" and "battered" and slathered in the sticky mess.”

Beans are the magical fruit and Christians associate magic with paganism and the devil. Duh.
