Beaned by beans
April 2, 2013 - Karin Elton
Ya know it’s hard out there for an insurance agent just tryin’ to get a little tomato juice and beer. (See “Charged with assault” letter to the editor.)
After parking his camper at the wayside rest in the middle of beautiful downtown Lynd, Gerhard Ziemann of Buffalo Lake is abruptly awakened by shouts from megaphone-carrying ministers alerting one and all to the negative aspects of staring at young women with an unnatural interest in poles.
He thought as long as he was up he would open a can of pork and beans to go along with a sandwich. Well, you can’t eat all that without liquid refreshment and there is a place right across the street advertised as a juice bar.
So here he was, going to the “Juice Bar” in Lynd, looking for ... juice. Inexplicably, since you would think it would have every variety of juice, Gerhard doesn’t find it there. So he walks down the main drag to the Lyndwood Tex-Mex Bar and Grill and is finally able to purchase tomato juice to add to his beer or as a chaser, I don’t know.
After leaving the bar — carrying his beans for some reason, he said he was accosted by the two megaphone-carrying preachers.
In pure self defense he throws his beans up in the air and they happen to fall on the preachers and their megaphone.
The preachers, not appreciating being bathed in beans, called the cops. It will be interesting to hear how the case of bean battery pans out.
