William arrived from Nashville yesterday with a big bag of Ghost Peppers he grew on his front porch. The technical name is Bhut Jolochia and they are the hottest chile in the world. I believe they are what are used to make pepper spray!
They measure over one million on the Scoville scale as compared with the habanaro, which is a measley 150K. This pepper isn’t messing around.
I asked him why he grew something so deadly. He said it made him feel good, the way four deadbolts and a weapon might make someone feel better when living in a deadly neighborhood.
I’m thinking of cooking some up this afternoon, but first I must call the Sheriff to see if he’ll loan me a Hasmet suit. If so we are making Nuclear Ghost Pepper Cracker Bombs
