Discussions over on the BBS about the earlier Trader Joe's cursed licorice "Gourmet Jelly Beans" post, perfectly went every which way one could want, when along comes 5 year lurker, Paddy with this brilliant suggestion:
In our version in Ireland we have Cola, Coffee and Cinnamon all looking the same. You need to pinch the bean between your fingers and do a sniff test, then bin the offensive flavoured ones.
And that's how we get to LL Cool J, who has always had one of my favorite lines of all time:
I'm the pinnacle, that means I reign supreme
And I'm notorious, I'll crush you like a jellybean
For decades this single line stood out like an odd monument to the times that gave birth to LL Cool J's career, but now I see it as a whole different thing, and wish that LL Cool J had sniffed his fingers while leaning back after imitating the jelly bean crush move.
