back to article Red hot chilli peppers floor Bristol shoplifter

A Bristol shoplifter got a shock lesson in the awesome power of the Scotch Bonnet after ill-advisedly deciding to scoff a handful of the napalm peppers he'd swiped from a store, before attempting to leg it from the scene.

My plant has only just produced flowers due to the poor summer, as has my dorset naga...There are plenty of videos of fools like me eating stupidly hot chillis, face is different, discomfort is the same....But scotch bonnets are mild by modern standards......However, watch my YT channel (cornz38)

Just wondering .....

"... who was found to be carrying another four peppers, "crack cocaine and a small amount of heroin", plus a clarinet he'd pinched from another shop.

Is is wrong of me to have burst out laughing when I read that?

Eh?

The stolen clarinet was presumably stolen for funds to buy more crack and heroin. But why shoplift chillis?

I don't recollect dodgy geezers in pub car parks saying "Wanna buy some chillis?".

Re: Full marks for planning, though..

Funny you should mention that....

Some years ago a company in the US Global Source Advantage (way back archive) created an anti-fouling paint for boats that used "high quality Habanero extract" as the active ingredient in the paint.

I believe it was marketed for a while in 2004 under the product name Hot Bottom Anti-fouling paint

Maybe the Bristol shoplifter had just seen the New Mickysoft Logo and needed something to counteract it's blandness.

Paris, another hot bottom.

You might have your sums wrong

> six weeks' jail for the possession and theft raps, and eight weeks for the breach of licence

This is UK sentencing so being sentenced to six weeks + eight weeks = eight weeks which means he will serve four weeks. So in the UK justice system 6 + 8 = 4.

If only he'd known that the chilli was in fact doing him no harm whatsoever, he could have enjoyed a bracing legal high for a change, saving his Class A's for later..

Perhaps stealing musical instruments gives him the horn too?

Re: worlds hottest chilli currently for sale in oz

If you watch Man V Food, they often use pure Capsaicin (the stuff which makes chilli hot) which is rated at 16,000,000. I just don't get why anyone would want to do that.

Sorry, couldn't resist. Flames, well, obvious, init?

I will stick to my home-made sambal setan (devil sauce) made from Madame Jeanette peppers, some vegetable oil, a bit of salt and vinegar, and a dash of sesame oil.

Nice and fruity
