“‘Soybean’ is a Spanish word which roughly translates as ‘I am bean’” (joke)

The Spanish word “soy” means “I am.” “The word “soybean” comes from spanish, where it means ‘I am bean’” was posted on Twitter by Drew Mokris on June 18, 2011. “‘Soybean’ is a Spanish word which roughly translates as ‘I am bean’” was posted on Twitter by Really Nice Guy on July 25, 2018. “Soybeans takes on a whole new meaning when you know a little bit of Spanish” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on July 1, 2020.
     
The joke is not perfect Spanish. “Bean” in Spanish is “frijol.” “Beans” in Spanish is “frijoles.” “Soybean” in Spanish is “haba de soja.” “Soybeans” in Spanish is “soja.”
     
“Soy sauce in Spanish means ‘I am sauce‘“ and “What if soy milk is just regular milk introducing itself in Spanish?” are related jokes.

If you think about it, soybeans are always saying “I am bean” and I think that’s beautiful.
