Many years ago, Jacque, was tricked into selling his last cow to M. Au Paulet for an amount that wasn't worth beans. The greedy monopolist guarded all his cattle closely, thus depriving the world of the milk of human kindness. The world soured as the last milk curdled. 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 BEAN (Biomicroscopy Endoscopic Arterial Neurosurgery). To his surprise, the BEAN stock grows rapidly. So rapidly in fact, that he finds himself questioned by the FBI, FTC, and practically other organization with an F in their name. In order to preserve his name, John breaks into BEAN headquarters and is soon recruited by Mr. Tucker to try to bring kindness back to the world. 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.
