Subject: Cool beans!--Again

A couple of months ago, Gerald Cohen asked the list about the origin of "cool
beans" . . . I still
don't know for sure but this weekend I had the opportunity for dining at Mickey
D's (because my 8
year olds couldn't possibly miss the latest Beanie Babies) and noticed that
McDonalds is now using
the expression on their latest "happy meal" bags. Looks like this expression
might get new life!
