    Soylent Beans are made out of humans! … And they give you worst gas that you can ever believe.

    Not just their kidneys.

    “What is ‘it’? And where have you bean?”

  9. DrLex | 5:05 am |

    Cyborg beans didn’t make it. Their batteries ran out.

  10. coffeebot | 5:06 am |

    All your beans are belong to us

  11. Ben | 5:41 am |

    Just for the record, in case you haven’t seen the film, this is intentional and consistent throughout the script. Borrowers always mispronounce the Japanese for “human”.

  12. Harris | 5:51 am |

    As Ben said, this is no mistake; it is a constant of borrower speech adapted directly from Mary Norton’s original English language novels.

  13. jjhitt | 5:55 am |

    It’s consistent with the original books, which were written in English by an English bean.

  14. Seventy2rd o clock | 6:01 am |

    – Mommy, these human beans tried to eat me!
    – That’s because we’re vegetable beans, sweetie.

    No Body But Me!

  16. Stopchicks | 6:37 am |

    The guy does kind of have a “hey, what smells?” expression on his face.

  17. Marum | 7:03 am |

    Smetink schmells.

    Ach Ya. Ist der dead of night.

  18. Marum | 7:04 am |

    Now you mention it.

    I do enjoy eating female beans.

  19. PeeBee | 8:37 am |

    I’m glad that Beans is safe. I didn’t think he’d make it.

  20. Biff the Understudy | 10:01 am |

    Starring Rowan Atkinson.

  21. Lora | 10:50 am |

    @ Marum And male beans are eaten with their weenies.

  22. Big Fat Cat | 1:56 pm |

    In the beginning, God created Adam and beans. Human beans are their descendants.

  23. TS | 2:35 pm |

    You can be a cannibal and get your daily fiber as well.

  24. Droll not Troll | 3:15 pm |

    Don’t touch them, you don’t know where they’ve bean.

  25. Droll not Troll | 3:17 pm |

    The human beans made it. It was a long journey and now they need to pea.

  26. Droll not Troll | 3:19 pm |

    These human beans have lots of moral fibre.

  27. Droll not Troll | 5:29 pm |

    They made a Vine video, of course.

  28. the spatular cephalopod | 5:54 pm |

    In the book, this is the spelling that is used.
    It’s not Engrish, just them taking into account a peculiarity of the book.

  29. EffEff | 12:45 am |

    Beef, beer, and beans made America.
    Let’s keep all three.

  30. Beanacus | 11:18 am |

    Further proof that a certain Mr. Bean is an alien.

  31. Chuck | 12:22 pm |

    @Huu Yuu : Maybe that should be SOIL-ENT BEANS

  32. Chuck | 12:23 pm |

    And he who denied it, supplied it !!

  33. Tom Hunter | 10:30 am |

    I saw this same mistake on a sign held by an illegal immigrant activist.

  34. Killjoy | 10:58 am |

    This is actually intentional, if you’ve ever seen the anime. It’s not Engrish.

  35. Peter (NT) | 2:04 pm |

    Male, I suppose?

  36. Drive | 5:20 pm |

    A real human bean and a real hero

  37. Vividrops | 11:26 am |

    This is not actually a mistake. It was intentionally put there because “The Secret World of Arietty’ is based on a book series.

    in the series, the borrowers (little people) don’t know much about humans, so they mispronounce human being as human bean. Check wikipedia for more info.

  38. Casey83 | 10:10 am |

    The pintos and the limas don’t get along.

  39. RocketCat | 8:51 am |

    So stop blaming alien legumes
