And in Florida news this morning…

YOUNGSTOWN, Florida — Thursday’s standoff between Sheriff Tommy Ford, Deputy Chief Joel Heape and Maj. Jimmy Stanford – which began with a call of a gunman and one person down – and a hammer-wielding man ended after Stanford snuck behind the suspect in a grocery aisle and hit him in the back with two cans of beans, authorities said Friday.

    16.5oz, 22oz, and 28oz. That’s the Bush’s baked beans in my pantry. From the heft, I’d surmise the 16.5 would be the easiest to lob across the aisles, and the larger ones would suffice for the coup de gras and the picnic afterwards.

    I was walking out of a store behind a lady when a bum laying on the sidewalk by the door reached over and felt up her leg.
    She reached in her bag, pulled out a #10 can of string beans, and clocked his ass right the fuck out.
    I was laughing so hard, she began to laugh.

    Man, that guy’s got an arm!
    Kudos to Maj. Jimmy Stanford for the non-lethal takedown. Well done!

    “I saw Jimmy poke his head out, the next thing I know he steps out with a can of Bush’s extra brown sugar baked beans…

    Would the maple cured bacon cans work? What about the barbecue?

    If this incident had happened in California, there would be a cry to ban cans of beans larger than 10 ounces. It’s for the the chilllldrrreeen dontcha know.

    Beaned him. Literally beaned him.

    That’s using the ole bean!

    On a related note, I wonder if generic beans would have worked?
