:lol: Thanks for that. I'm with Nik, if you ever hear me mention a desire to be in politics just kill me then:D
! This was so sarcastic and snarky, of course I loved it
Mom-H, we are all up for the job. Anyone with common sense and some education can do it. Especially the legislative positions. All they do is vote and pontificate and get paid for it. I do that and I don't get even get a penny.
Well, after than I'm thinking maybe I'm up to the job!
Don't worry I will never be a politician.
Virgil if I ever make noises about being a politician, you are to tie me up and leave me for dead in a desert.
That was an engaging story, and I'm glad it had a happy ending (I remembered your other workplace emergency blog). It will be a great story for everyone to tell around the office and for the ambulance people. Heehee. I can't believe he had to sign a waiver before eating it! Yikes.
poor guy!!!!!!!LOLLLLLLLLLLL!!! i think I'll have the vomits myself for laughung so hard!!!!!!!!!thanks Virgil!!you have an excellent writing-hand!!!!!!!
No question Fifth. I'm a shameless promoter of my blog.
Oh that sounds yucky.
hehehe, serves him right! Funny story Virgil, though I do think you ought to post yourself on the 'shameless promotion of blog' thread
We occasionally have strange eating battles at work, usually for Comic Relief. We had a hot chilli challenge which was pretty gross, but the worst was when one guy decided to do a 'Cool Hand Luke'. After eating about 20 eggs he went and threw up, and threw up some more, and then some more and then we had to send him home. Not advisable. That being said, this is the same guy who would pick unknown substances off files and eat them, and also sustained himself through a cash saving period by eating little sachets of sauce he'd filched from various fast food outlets. To make it interesting he'd mix mayonnaise with brown sauce with mustard with horseradish. Not nice.
A good funny story!
I got clucked once with an Indian dish which had all the spices you could name. Koreans are also used to spicy dishes but I prefer food moderately spicy.
May your days be cluck free!
I get the same hiccups too Silas when I eat very spicy food. It's almost some chemical reaction with my stomach lining. Not sure why this would be.
Great story Virgil!
I used to love spicy food, but now every time I eat too many whole chillis I get hiccups. I'd like to say I'd try the challenge, but I'd probably just waste the food and not be able to finish, and be burning at both ends for the next week! I guess I'd be more likely to go for the Death level spices rather than the 911.
haha!!! thats hilarious!!
Now this is why I don't eat spicy food:lol: I left a post on your board when I read this a few days ago, but I just had to come back again. I needed the laugh this morning. Much Love, Meg
oh wow, poor guy funny though- I bet that he's going to try them again... I like spicy food and all, but if something has a name like 'suicidal' or '911' I would so not try it (especially if you have to sign a waver) X)
Well told, Virgil!
I have heard some very descriptive names for hot spicy sauces, but Cluck You takes the proverbial cake!
Thank you everyone. Star, I bet he does try again. Boy will be boys.
Claes I think you once mentioned you grow chilis. I would love to hear some of your stories.
Fantastic writing, Virgil. . I feel so sorry for the poor bloke, but then again, it was his own choice...
Did I tell you any of the stories related to the plants in my office? I grow chili there, and sometimes people insist on tasting it. Of course I let them have a go after warning them A bit of commotion usually follows, but I have had no whoopsies like the event you described so vividly.
