It’s Friday, so here’s an absurd story of baked bean tattoos to get your weekend started.
Barry “Captain Beany” Kirk loves baked beans. So much so that he sat in a bathtub full of them and set a world record. Now he’s decided to take his love a step further and get beans tattooed on his head. It’s all for a good cause, mind you, each tattooed bean has a sponsor who pledged £60 to charity.

But the crazy stunt wasn’t all about him and his strange fascination with baked beans. 30 years ago, through his original bean stunt, Captain Beany not only managed to set a world record, but also raise a considerable amount of money for charity. The experience inspired him to quit his computing job and become a full-time fundraiser. For his 60th birthday, he came up with the idea of having baked beans tattooed on his head and asking people to sponsor each individual inking, with the proceeds going to a good cause.
