“The chinese plant the hell out of these; I had supposed that Chinese use of chili peppers was a Chinese-American thing,”
When I had Dish, I used to watch the Chinese channels a lot. There was a game show based upon which contestant could eat the hottest food. It was hilarious! One time the had “cookies” that were made of flour of ground chilies! That’s all that was in them! Contestants would shed articles of clothing in attempts to cool down.
What would be funny is to show those folks when they had to answer nature's call.
They're just as hot comin' out as they were goin' in. :-P
