Many years ago, Jacque was tricked into selling his last cow to M. Au Paulet
for an amount that wasn’t worth beans.

John, the owner of a small
failing business, is tricked by a strange
little man to sell his company for three
thousand shares of an unknown stock called Beomicroscopy Endoscopic NeuroSurgery.

To his surprise, the BEAN stock grows rapidly.  So rapidly, in fact, that he finds himself questioned by the FBI, FTC, and practically every organiation with an F in their name.
In order to preserve his name,
John breaks into BEAN headquarters.
Whisked away, John must fight
bureaucrats, dragons, labor unions,
and a very powerful corporate giant.
But despite all the obstacles
John won’t quit...
not ‘til the cows come home.
