Beans and Rice

February 13, 2012

Murky Memories: Although I’ve never eaten “beans and rice” as a meal, I remember this PSA from the late 70s.

Perhaps it’s the Schoolhouse Rock-ish-ness of the video that made it seem so cool, but I have never forgotten it or the message behind the video. Beans and Rice are nice.

(Interestingly, I’ve always misremembered the lyrics as “Beans and rice, beans and rice, sometimes if you’re good mama will serve us twice.” I’m not sure that even makes sense, but that’s what I have thought it was for nearly thirty years.)
