Zen Monday: #134


I don't write much blog copy on Zen Monday, because on Mondays I pretend I am a Zen Master.

Please experience the photo and tell us, in the comments, what you've learned.

(Your first Zen Monday? Tell us what the photo makes you think of. There's no right or wrong. There are no prizes. Just have fun.)

"Can O' Beans" in a handy aerosol. After one spritz, makes the paper curl from the walls.

It reminds me of a perfect rainy day. It makes me want to go walk down that street without an umbrella.

They put the name of their restaurant up there because they weren't permitted to run a food establishment in this part of Pasadena. Unfortunately, though the permit officer never spotted it, neither did any customers.

Moral: sometimes one can be too subtle.

Since the phrase "can o' corn" was already taken it is only logical that "can o' beans" was next in the food chain line.

Their first choice, Can O'Worms©, had already been trademarked by the Little Homestead in the City™®© next door.

No spewing today though...I've taken Mr E's sage legal advice to heart!!!

"in what was an ironic move, the restaurantuers constructed their building out of concrete, but with a roll up tin door, thus, they could still *claim* it was like a can, avoiding nasty trademark infringement issues".

wv: ariar...the "suthun" pronunciation of arear, as in "I'm in ariar of payin my trademark fees to Mister Earl for all these letters I'm usin", including FU and sod off. ;-)

Borrowing the idea of the christian fish, people convinced that global climate change is a threat to the ecosphere use the "Can O' Beans" symbol to recognize each other without exposing themselves to deniers, lest they be thrown to the oil company executives.

Good evening, everyone and thanks for coming by today! Welcome, new commenters and old. Well--not old. Let's say, tried and true.

For those who may not be aware, several comments today refer to an ongoing discussion locally about the Dervaes family and Urban Homesteading. Here's the latest article I've read about it. I can't seem to get enough of this weird story.
