I was enjoying the memes that George collected at Georges Grouse and came across one that started off,
“Did you know? A teaspoon of cayenne can start heart attacks in a minute.”Now I want you to know that I am not a doctor whether it be Carson, Spock, Phil or Jill. I am, however, someone who has found that cayenne pepper can add a bit of fun to a recipe. It is like sardines in Caesar salad dressing. A whisper enhances. Too much gags or elicits screams. When I make chili with a pound of beef, a can of beans, a can of diced tomatoes and a can of tomato sauce, not to mention the onions and bell peppers, I put in maybe a quarter of a teaspoon of cayenne and when I enjoy the chili the spice livens things up. I cannot picture taking a teaspoon of cayenne.
It might work. It could also be that you might be so shocked by the pepper it is like being hit with a defibrillator.
Sorry, I think I will pass on this one. Just because I enjoy memes doesn’t mean I turn off my brain.
