The Baked Bean Museum And The Shah Of Iran’s Thumbprint

by | 28th, January 2009

IT gives Old Mr Anorak immense pleasure to declare the Baked Bean Museum open. A rasp on the buns, if you please.

Captain Beany’s museum is housed in picturesque Port Talbot. It is Port Talbot’s newest attraction; some would say, only attraction.

Captain Beaney has converted his Sandfields home doubles as the venue for the hosue of haricot.

OMA would like it known that the bakes bean museum is not the only one of its kind and he has for some decades been stockpiling beans and all manner of tins for the big offensive. His Anderson Shelter will never be open to the public and is meant just for the select few.

In this way the Anorak Musuem Of Survival Rations is on a par with the British Museum and many other of the world’s leading museums.

Everyday punters will be allowed to tour the “menu” – an actual menu on which are smeared no less than 532 interesting food stains and a thumb print left by the Shah of Iran in 1976.

Donations or either food, tins or stories of interesting stains should be submitted to the usual address…
