During a recent campaign stop, in a speech directed at an organized bean farmers union meeting, Mitt Romney bragged that even as a young child he ALWAYS ate his beans. Not so, says one family member of the candidate.
At every holiday dinner Mitt would find new and inventive ways to dispose of his green beans, sources say.
"He would use any means possible to get rid of them. It was an annual event to see how he would do it every year. He drove our Grandma nuts with his antics. He did it all; spitting them into his napkin, feeding them to the dog and even putting them down his pants."
"One time Mitt slipped them into his shoe during Christmas dinner and the forgot they were in there. A bunch of us kids got together to play football after we ate. Mitt did the kick-off and when he did his shoe went flying through the air, sending beans spinning down on our heads. One hit my brother right in the eye blinding him. He ran right into my cousin breaking his nose."
The nest year we thought he had finally learned his lesson. No one saw or heard him do anything on Christmas day. We found out later, from our Aunt, that we were wrong. Mitt stuffed his jacket pockets full of beans and then when they got home he hung it back in the hall closet. My Aunt didn't find it until almost three months later. By then, the flies laid their eggs in the rotting beans and maggots filled his pockets."
Mitt was apparently less than truthful about his culinary past. He forgot there is always someone in the know, willing to spill the beans.
