Weapon Of Ass Destruction
I’ve been morbidly fascinated by the Scoville rating of chilliness ever since I paid a visit to San Diego’s Hot Licks.
Today, NMSU announced the Scoville-busting Bhut Jolokia chile – officially the world’s most potent sphincter-shrinker… this butt-biohazard bears more than twice the spice of the previous record holder… so smokin’ hot, Stephen Hawking dubbed it the Red Hole, so fiery Satan’s added a 10th circle to Hell!
Incidentally, Bhut Jolokia translates as Ghost Chile…! One bite and you’re dead?
UPDATE: Ouch. Looks like the Dorset Naga kicks Bhut at a reported 1.6m Scovilles…
