Dumbass Sayings: “Cool Beans”

Uncool beans.
“Cool beans” is a popular saying that kids use today to mean “cool” or “nice.” Perhaps they wouldn’t use the phrase if they knew it was from the late 1960’s. What will kids today say next? “Rad”? Or “Well that gives me the reds!”? Aren’t archaic sayings supposed to be “gay”? Kids need to start making up their own sayings because “Cool beans” is not one that should have survived to this point in human history. “Cool” is fine to still use and that’s an old one too, but there’s just no reason to tack on the word beans to that. Why beans? Why not sausage or lasagna or pot roast? It doesn’t make any sense. I don’t care how popular iced coffee has become, that’s the closest anyone should get to having anything to do with “cool beans.”
