Also didn’t get Green Beans. The export of US TV and cinema has allowed for me to pick up on a fair number of the traditions around Thanksgiving, but not that one (although fans of Friends could have got Green Bay from a Thanksgiving episode of the show, where Phoebe feigns interest in a football game on TV to avoid having to help Monica in the kitchen, proclaiming Green Bay to be her “favourite bay”). However, the only American cultural reference I can think of for Green Beans is from The West Wing, where the staff were dealing with a throwaway comment someone had made about President Bartlet not liking that particular veg, and how that might play to voters in Oregon. So, “type of bean grown a lot in Oregon” would have worked for me as a clue :-)
case they have ..." one, did anyone else try green teeth?
