What A Weird Texas Scouting Fundraiser Video



This is weird from start to finish. The guy eating the ghost peppers comes across as a serial killer, and the guy introducing him comes across as a modern day Charles Manson who directs serial killers.

So odd.

Do you have to eat ghost peppers to become an Eagle Scout these days?

Side note: I'm not sure I've ever had a ghost pepper. Mrs. LL and I were in Mexico once and were encouraged by a waiter to try some kind of pepper -- I ate maybe a 1/4 of an inch of it, and it almost killed me. I guess I just don't have the serial killer DNA.

You see evil everywhere, don't you?

I don't know from ghost peppers, but I tried one of those tiny habaneros when I was a teenager, with the same reaction you had. However, my cousin-in-law ate a handful of them. By the time he was done, he was drenched in sweat - and smiling! That may seem like serial killer behavior, but I don't think he ever murdered more than one or two folks.
The only other thing comparable for me was one of those hot red peppers in Chinese cuisine.

This is what happens when you allow gays in the scouts!

Skippy, you had probably best stick to bell peppers...

There is a hamburger place in Mansfield that serves ghost burgers. If you eat one at one sitting you get your photo posted on the " Wall of Flame". You have to sign a release from liability before they will serve you one. I did it and it was the hottest thing I ever tasted; and I used to love HOT.
P.S. I would not do it again even for a posting in the Smithsonian.

Not a legitimate fund raiser in the BSA. No one should send money. Adults should be kicked out of Scouting for putting it out.

I grow Trinidad Scorpion Moruga and Carolina Reaper (currently worlds hottest chile scorpion is second). Anybody eating them whole should be mentally evaluated, plus they can put you in the emergency room. I also grow chile pequins, which I prefer, all heat and no flavor. I use them dried and fresh in picante sauce and as seasoning.

Shouldn't scout leaders be a good example? This is stupid. Next up...we run over Johnny with a car, because we need money?
