Ghost peppers sell for $120 a pound? shiat, maybe I'll grow some next year then.

Though, off the top of my head, I an think of another crop that sells for more per pound that I'd rather grow. But for some stupid reason it's a schedule I controlled substance.

Look for a man wearing chef's hat being chased by a giant omelet and a giant hot dog Weiner.

What do you call a veteran that's survived pepper spray and mustard gas?

A seasoned veteran.

Its about 50 miles from Grinnell to Des Moins.

Have they questioned the Crazy Rhubarb Lady who lives in Grinnell?

Place? Porch.  Plot? Potent pepper patch pilfered.  Police puzzled.

I can't imagine that there is any pepper selling for $120/lb.  The hp22b (Carolina Reaper) cannot be sold commercially due to copyright etc and most things like the Moruga, Bhut, Butch-T, 7-Pot (fill in your favorite) are being sold for $20ish a lb if not cheaper.  I picked up some 7-pot Primo's for $10/lb shipped just yesterday.  Maybe he has one of the few planets in the world producing the Fatali Gourmet Jigsaw pepper (which again can't be sold commercially) and they are counting black market price or a per/pod price for the idiots on the net "wanting to try it?"

I heard Peter got a sex change operation, and now she sells seashells... um somewhere, I don't remember.

Police have warned grocery stores to be on the lookout for a crying individual who sprints to the milk and drinks it straight out of the jug.
