Being a Bean.

Following on from the last post about ‘correctness’ and style in the use of English, I suppose I have to admit that even I draw the line somewhere. I found the following comment appended to Dave Brubeck’s Take Five on YouTube.

‘I’m a original human bean that likes this thing that you all need to know I like.’

What I find most fascinating about this is that he put the apostrophe in ‘I’m.’ Could it betray the fact that he’s actually a skilled writer who is having a joke at the expense of YouTubers?

Somebody else commented:

‘I like soup.’

Well said. So do I.
