I asked Hopper to write a few words about Mr. Bean on the occasion of one of them just turning seven a few weeks ago and the other one having a birthday in just a week. Here is what he wrote:
"I like Mr. Bean because he listens to me."
(This is a straight up lie. Mr. Bean listens to no one but the unholy yowling of a stray neighborhood cat who apparently tells him to bark loudly and steadily at 3am.)
"He likes to eat good things."
(Also false, Bean-o here eats poop, various grasses and once, inexplicably, half a box of dryer sheets).
"I like him because hes' the best."
Oh, okay, fine.
