Behold, the glorious screw bean

According to the 'Reader's Digest Great Encyclopedic Dictionary' published in 1969, a screw bean is a tree or shrub of the mimosa family bearing spiral pods used as fodder. It has nothing to do with a screw eye, screw jack, screw pile, screw pine, screw propeller, screw thread, or screwworm fly.

Now, go impress the others in your office or home with this knowledge.

Yes, go do it now while the inspiration is hot. I'll be here when you get back.

I was ridiculed and made the butt of many office jokes. A string of tin cans was tied to my belt and I was pulled along by two punk kids on skate boards. They left me at the city dump and tossed cherry bombs at me as they sped away from the scene. But I know I'm a better man for it.

Well done, Ten Irish.

Very well done.
