Baked Bean Foot Prankster Dupes Shopkeeper

LONDON (Reuters) – A young shop assistant was tricked into letting a complete stranger smear her bare feet with baked beans and syrup “for charity.”

The woman in her 20s was alone in the Edinburgh shop when the man came in, police said on Friday.

She agreed to his bizarre request, which he said was aimed at raising money for Comic Relief.

“He brought foodstuffs with him and made her lie back with her eyes closed before proceeding to pour gunk on her feet. He then asked her if she could identify what they were,” said police spokeswoman Ruth MacCleod.

The stranger, believed to be in his early 30s, also took several photographs, particularly of her feet.

Lothian and Borders Police said the man then thanked the woman and left. It was only when she told her flatmates about it later on Tuesday evening that she became alarmed.

“The woman’s friends told her: ‘What on Earth were you thinking? He’s obviously a total weirdo'” MacCleod said.

She added that the man had done nothing to physically harm the her and she had not felt threatened. The man’s behavior was not necessarily criminal, MacCleod said.

“The reason we’ve put this story out is because the man said he had other sponsors he would get to do the same thing.”

“It’s just in case he goes and visits another female working in a shop on her own and things go a bit awry… progressing from the feet.”

George is back stateside, right?
