Bhut Jolokia isn't the name of a Indian demon worshipping cult from an Indiana Jones movie -- it's a type of chili pepper related to a Habanero. However, If you think Habaneros are hot -- which come in at around 80,000-100,000 Scoville units each, comparing it to the Bhut Jolokia is like comparing a small tactical nuclear weapon that was recently tested in North Korea to the Tsar Bomba that went off in 1961.
The Bhut Jolokia chile pepper, measuring in at approximately 1 Million Scoville units of heat each, is the hottest chile pepper in the world. And if you are actually willing to submit yourself to it, there's an Indian restaurant in New York City, Brick Lane Curry House, which will make a dish called Phaal Curry that features these nasty little things.Well, apparently, Mike was willing to eat a Phaal Curry to get his hands on a Palm Pre. Frankly, I think I would probably prefer to wait on line and pay cash for the thing rather than submit my GI system and sensitive mucous membranes to the horrible aftermath.
Would you me willing to shoot fire out of your rear end to get a hold of a Palm Pre? Talk Back and Let Me Know.
