Yesterday, a co-worker was preparing baked beans for the company picnic.
According to confirmed reports, her first step was to wash the can. Then she opened it, and everything else was pretty standard after that.
I heard about this from a co-worker, who said he questioned her at the time and she said "I don't know where this can of beans has been." ("Up her ass," stated my husband with confidence when he heard the story.)
So, I'm putting myself on the line here, I know, but I don't wash a can before I open it. But, I want to learn. (Really, I've been doing the dance with the paper towels and the sink faucet since you have shown me the light. You should see me. I look all uptight and righteous.)
So, tell me, show me the way: Should I be washing my cans?
