Legendary Spoof writer Jalapenoman, usually referred to by fellow writers as the J-man today expressed consternation after learning that Indian Special Forces groups are using the world's hottest chilli as a weapon.
"I thought I had the hottest chilli tagged and filed," J-man told us. "But it seems not. There's a chilli out there known as 'bhut jolokia' and it's so potent that it can be used in grenades to flush terrorists out of caves."
The hotness of chillies is graded on the Scoville Scale. Starting with regular bell peppers at classification zero, the mighty jalapeno clocks in at around 8,000 on the scale.
Whereas the Bhut Jolokia clocks in at over A MILLION
And reputedly can damage the butt beyond belief.
"Well I'll be blowed," J-Man told us.
"You should be so lucky," we told him.
More chilli related chatter as we get it.
