Kenwood Bean Fountain

pour beans and dip in toast

Kenwood Bean Fountain works exactly like a chocolate fountain except it delivers a constant cascading stream of baked beans.

Some minor adjustments to the machinery, (see link) and heating elements ensure that the beans are neither boiling hot; chewed up by the central Archimedes auger (that's what I'm calling it anyway) nor allowed to become too sticky or runny.

Simply dip in your toasted bread and enjoy!

       Given a chance to cycle it could be self-heating too.

       I cannot think of anything more disgusting than this that is not already prohibited by statute.

       I always aim to please :-) Already working on the mozzarella version!

       Bovril fountain.
Alterother, Mar 23 2012
  

       Partially baked, at least. No pun intended this time, I promise. See [link] to the clip from The Who's film Tommy.

       I dislike mushy peas, but there are many who appreciate them, so this idea might be better suited to a pea mushing fountain for a fish 'n chip shop.   

       <off-topic>I have just realised that [beanangel] is probably 'be an angel' rather than 'bean angel' as I had previously assumed.</off-topic>

       Mushy peas - excellent idea! I love mushy peas.

       I raise you one Durian fountain...   

       <aside>Sorry, but that's "The Iveagh Bequest at Kenwood", not Kenwood, I used to work there and the curator was most clear on the matter...</a>

       //[beanangel] is probably 'be an angel'// It is; he said so once. Even knowing that, I can't help reading it as bean angel.   

       why did Treon change his name??

       and what's a bean angel?

       I don't know but that's one heck of an idea list for someone who created their account today...

       I think I may create kinder ideas with be an angel   

       you know more radiance

       //that's "The Iveagh Bequest at Kenwood", not Kenwood//   

       OK. All we need now is a way to photograph a place without photographing any objects, bequeathed or otherwise, which might be at that place at the time. The physics could be a challenge.

       //and what's a bean angel?// A Heinz bean instead of a has been.

       Mouse-based forestry. Make all coins look the same. Wearable nouns. Kinetic spaghetti. Photosynthetic toilet tissue. Lead-free tennis balls. Artificial bricks. Bagpipe amnesty. Robotic snowflake tesselator. Fireproof telephones. Global Provisioning Cistern. Submerge Switzerland. Fortune Wookies.

       [marked-for-tagline] and a poster I'm going to put up in my office (an advertising agency).

       Baked.

       //Baked// Not made with an integral lubricant they're not.

       So are beans.

       //Mouse-based forestry.// Poor Uncle Xerxes. He wanted to go into forestry, but succumbed to pressure from his parents, who didn't consider it a respectable profession.   

       //...robotic snowflake tesselator...// Hmm, not bad.
mouseposture, Mar 25 2012
  

       //It's almost impossible to have an original thought on this site these days.// I totally disagree - in fact I think it's the opposite. The more ideas there are, the more new ones they generate. I only ever post a small portion of mine on a constant trickle basis. Trickle or Treacle? - ha :-)
xenzag, Mar 25 2012
  

       Anyone else find that their ideas come in spurts?
wait...
  

       //Lead-free tennis balls// My brother once made a lead-filled tennis ball, thus creating, in a relative way, billions of lead-free tennis balls.
spidermother, Mar 25 2012
  

       Leaving aside the lead-free tennis balls for a moment, I was wondering if it would be possible to hijack a working, but not that dangerous, volcano.   

       By drilling a hole into the central vent it might be possible to inject uncooked beans in water and have them cooked and ejected in the next eruption?

       I'd run a pilot scheme with a geyser first.
