Apparently, Teens Are 'Beaning' Houses These Days Instead Of Egging Them

Look, it's no surprise to any of us that teens today act very different than we all did at their age. Back in the day, there was no social media. There were no iPhones and texting. There were no debit or credit cards — we were just glorified kids with driver's licenses.

These days, it seems kids are growing up faster than ever, but some things seemingly never change, like the desire to throw food at people's houses.

Did I ever egg someone's house as a teenager? Well... is the Pope a Catholic?

I never did it out of spite or anger, of course. I just threw a couple of eggs at my best friend's door for her birthday when we were 15.

Of course, I knew of kids who did way worse things than that...

Personally, I've never been fond of the idea of wasting food in the name of a prank, especially not EGGS!

Eggs are so versatile and tasty, I hate to see them being wasted. It seems kids today feel the same way, which is why "beaning" people's houses has become a popular trend.

Yep, kids are using canned beans for the time-honoured prank.

According to a TikTok uploaded by user @blake_clarkkk, kids are using beans to make a messier point and it's the "experience of a lifetime."

The trend seemed to begin with a TikTok account titled @bean.bandits, who film themselves dumping cans of beans onto people's front porch.

Apparently, it's become such an issue in England that British police and news outlets have been warning people about the messy trend.

The Guardian asks people to look out for teens buying large amounts of canned beans at a time — yes, that's really what the world has come to.

Kids today, amirite?
