As documented on this blog, I was brought low by a food item during my trip to Japan. This was the little crunchy cone which tasted like "a hint of hot pepper mixed with cat shit, sand and brown sugar." Without further ado, I present photographic evidence of my humiliation at the hands of the Japanese snack food industry, courtesy of lasirenadolce.

I confront my nemesis, blissfully unaware of my impending fate.

And so it begins.

The taste hits Jay
The taste begins to hit me. I assume the recommended eating position.

Unsuccessful attempt to swallow it whole
I make an unsuccessful attempt to swallow the damned thing whole.

The aftermath
I finally choke it down (out of sheer decorum as we are standing in the lower lobby of the InterContinental during this entire donnybrook).

As usual, more at the Flickr set

Y'know, I had about 2% of this experience this weekend at my Game Day. I ate a left-over stuffed jalepeno, microwaving it to make it all savory and stuff. This, apparently, really wakes up the capsaicin, and the now-hot oils ensure its full delivery into every mouthal crevice.

But at least it tasted good, watering eyes notwithstanding. You, sir, did not enjoy the flavor, I suspect. I love that last shot. I can't believe you made it onto the plane and home without barfing. And what's in that thing?

Bet your cats would come running back to you if you breathed heavily on them after eating one of those.
So, was this before or after you fondled Frank's Hugo?

After the fondling. Otherwise my breath would have pitted the finish on Frank's rocket.

(And if that doesn't sound like a euphemism for something creepy, I don't know what does.)

You were not blissfully unaware of my impending fate!

You- ha!- were warned!
