Bean Man is Everyman.

Bean Man is the person we all are when we are asked about our day, opinions or actions.

Bean Man is the person we invoke with "him", "them" or "they".

Bean Man is the Third Person, living his life one simple statement at a time.

Bean Man lives in the present, he speaks the obvious, he expresses in simple statements complex daily events.

Bean Man is very polite, he omits the detail.

Bean Man is miming the tip of the iceberg that floats just below the surface.
