When Chilies Attack

Posted: 17th November 2011 by affehaus in food stuffs

HP22B is a Pepper.
And he means to do you harm.
A North Carolina man by the name of Ed Currie is genetically crafting peppers in an effort to build the hottest chili strand in the world. He is currently in possession of the aforementioned HP22B, which has, according to one authority, 1.5 million Scoville Heat Units. Just to put that in perspective, the Scotch bonnet pepper and the Habenero chili range between 100,000 and 350,000 SHUs. A friend of mine ate, at my instigation, an Habenero once, and it made his nose bleed.
So it is no small feat that Mr. Currie (appropriate, no?) taste-tests his product.
“The first time we tried it, out of the six of us…four puked. So I knew I was on the right path…”

and it’s such a pretty little thing

Bonus Material: a radio personality Marshall Terry [why? Why is it always the radio personalities?] commits culinary suicide when he consumes part of an HP22B for a segment, and there’s a video of it on the Youtubes. Fun stuff.
Truly– I do not envy Mr. Terry the bowel movement he’s incurred.

    But I did not puke.

      True, sir, you did not puke. But I’m pretty sure hallucinations became part of the evening’s entertainment.

    They should use this most evil peppar drawing as the mascot for marketing a peppar spray for thwarting intruders and other self defense uses. Although the likely clean up of barf, after the authorities drag out the disabled perp out, would be a gross aspect.
