beanie babies Can they be eaten : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Help please. We dont have a lot of food and my husband dont want to buy extra stuff because he thinks this whole y2k thing is just a bunch of crap. My little girl collects beanie babies and i was wondering weather we could eat the beans inside if we run out of food. I know she would be mad but we got to eat right.

What a clever idea!

Got caskets?

I suggest beanie babies with furbies and a light saucing of Quaker State. It's simply srcumptious

Well, of course you can!

You don't think the whole beanie baby scam wasn't to get ...ahm, citizens... like you to prepare for Y2K? It works out great: people with self-respect would never allow those .. food supplements.. in their house (same group preparing for Y2K), while ... consumers.. like you who actually buy beanie babies now have nothing to worry about!

Don't forget those Chia pets, either! Sprout 'em!

Hint: don't bother cooking the beans! Eat 'em as is! They'll expand!

Rosebushes! Deja Vu!

My daughter had a small hole in one of her beanie babies. Guess what, the 'beans' in her's were plastic bb's! I figured the rest were filled with the same stuff. Not actually beans at all!

Show your husband a copy of today's Washington Post article. (There are links to it on this site) Call your local Red Cross and ask for its Y2K preparedness guide for families. See if that changes his mind a little bit. God bless you.

Buy a couple of bags of soybeans and dried peas. Tell him its to refill beanie babies, in case any others spring a leak.

Then tell him you got the wrong size soybeans and need to get a few more.

I hear Barbie dolls are good eating, even if not quite anatomically correct.

Back just before Christmas, someone on North's food forum mentioned people buying these overpriced little animals - up to $500 for a so-called "retired" toy - and speculated as to whether one year and some days hence they might be cutting them open for the beans. To anyone who spent $500 on a stupid stuffed animal, instead of on rice, I just hope they're tender!

If you have money for beanie babies, you have money for rice and beans, no matter what your old man says.

Sell the beanies and buy supplies. We are. People have paid over 600 bucks for about 30 of them already. Foolish, in my opinion.

Don't worry about anything. Y2K is a scam! Go visit and learn what is really going on!
