A Glass Half Full of Stuff to Read

Baked Bean Black Hole

A man once went on

An all baked bean diet

And thought he was safe

Because his bowels remained quiet


He ate tins upon tins

Millions of beans

Until his stomach swelled up

And burst open his jeans


But this champion bean eater

Couldn't pass any gas

And soon his body

Approached critical mass


When he finally farted

His trousers eroded

And much worse than that

The poor guy imploded


A gravitational anomaly

Now filled the space

Where he once had sat

And stuffed beans in his face


Scientists investigated

His empty bean bowl

And named the phenomenon

A baked bean black hole.
