    Really? 22 views and not one comment?

    What do you guys miss more?

    Your hair or your send of humor?

    Never been a fan, but I think he did a great job and showed a little self-deprecation in the process...

    :D

    Beans are a fruit?

    That's a massive production and a big-budget video for a little bit of satire. I can't help feeling that the arrangement is influenced somewhat by Bat Out of Hell.

    Botanically speaking, a fruit is a seed-bearing structure that develops from the ovary of a flowering plant, whereas vegetables are all other plant parts, such as roots, leaves and stems. Some argue beans are neither because they are all legumes. The fruit of a legume comes out in the form of a pod, which opens along a seam and contains seeds within.

    So, more fruit than vegetable, IMO, but YMMV.

    But like the children's rhyme alluded to in song:

    Bean, beans a wonderful fruit.
    The more you eat, the more you toot.
    The more you toot, the better you feel.
    So eat your beans at every meal.

    (Brought to you by The United Bean Council or something, no doubt).

    That and my love of a double entendre was behind the titling of the post.

    Yeah..I thought so too. But it parodies Groban's actual style of over-produced, over dramatic, panty-moistening drivel. I'm impressed with his self awareness.

    That is funny! I liked him in The Office. Other than that, not really a fan.
