Back when I worked at the power company a few of us got into some friendly 'one upmanship' with hot sauce. Leavenworth, Washington is a small town on Highway 2 just East of Stevens Pass with a Bavarian German Chalet style. There is a gift shop there that carries a number of hot sauces of varying degrees of heat.


For one that they sold the merchant required the customer to sign a release form.

Yeah, there's some gimmicky stuff out there.
For sauces I always read the label and get the ones that are just peppers, water, vinegar, spices, et. If it has added capsicum I pass on it.

Got an itch to scratch?

Volkswagen can help!

I would like to see their insurance claim...











Oh, and no animals were harmed. The car, however... "all the windows were smashed, the roof was badly dented and the entire top part of the car smashed. All four tyres had been blown and the chassis broken."

Seems like they never should have gotten that close to a bull elephant in the first place. The story says the driver and passenger were in their twenties - trying to get that perfect selfie, maybe?

Looks like the Norwegian version of air conditioning.


Nice!

I've seen the video of that. Rental car so depending on which option they picked for insurance, it could be an expensive excercise. I see the post says "chassis broken". That car does not have a chassis.

So the VW must have smelled like a cow elephant in heat.

I suspect a different treatment had that been the case...

The nuts have just the right heat. Enough to make your socks roll up and down, but not enough to override the flavor of the peppers.
I'll wait until I get home to try the salsa.

Got some of these too. (Didn't get a picture. It was easier to just steal one)



Thank you, Jim. Much appreciated.
They look much better than the stories about the yellowish stuff, about which there is a lack of agreement concerning whether it is cheese.

There are Volkswagen numbers and real numbers. (Not the real numbers referred to by mathematicians, just real numbers.)
