    Definitely not as cool as a spinny chair.

  2. jjmblue7

    Even if it was fresh, it would’ve probably been grape flavor. Grape jelly beans = bleh.

  3. iellswo

    I personally can’t stand the licorice ones, or the popcorn ones.

  4. Dan Genesis

    REGAN VINTAGE? Damn. Missed my chance.

  5. Malverne

    Puh-lease. A jelly bean would have to be from biblical times to make Pain throw up like that. I could eat a Cold War jelly bean with minimal difficulty, and I actually chew.

  6. Bismarck

    I wonder how many people will need that history lesson, I started to ROTFLOL as soon as he said “jelly bean”!

    @ Malverne
    Think about what kind of smell that will leave!

  7. Kiriel

    Now I wonder if Pain was the inventor of Bertie Bott’s beans.. ._. Or maybe Alisdair(misfortune) if you don’t know what you’re getting, my mom accidentally got a grass flavor, and she’s allergic to something in cut grass and it made her throat close up some.. xD Whoops.

    @iellswo You don’t know what you’re talking about, at least with the licorice ones. They’re good. =) I’ll agree that the popcorn ones should never have been made, I blame the pain and misfortune duo.

  9. Aletheya

    Whoa! I never thought I’d see the day when Pain would throw up!

  10. Trixxer13

    Well the Jelly bean is better than the peanut he may have found. It would have probably had the distict aftertaste of failure.

  11. jjmblue7

    @iellswo: Licorice ones are the worst!

    “Mr. Gorbachev, *munch,munch,munch* Tear down *munch,munch* this, mmm *munch,munch,munch* :)

  13. Wizard

    Gotta agree, I never imagined Pain’s digestion being that delicate. Some sort of allergy, perhaps?

  14. DktrAgonizer

    Oh hey, that’s a neat tidbit of history. Who says comics don’t teach people? 😛

    @Kiriel: Ouch, that sucks. I had a bad experience with those myself, once. I was aiming for cocunut, but since that and horseradish had the exact same flavor, well… I never bought Berti Bott’s beans again after that day. XD

  15. Kiriel

    @Aktr Oh dear lord do I remember horseradish… I also remember pepper which for some reason i grew a liking to, although i could only eat a few of those at a time before my body would rebel. :C

  16. Comichero

    Ha seeing Pain barf was almost as entertaining as watcing my 3rd garde class throw up one after another

    @Zarvain
    Hey, I think you misplaced the words “popcorn” and “licorice” in your post.
    Because they should be in the opposite place.
