Feed a little kid hot chili sauce, for shame!
Mom, watch how many haba~neros you put in the chili sauce. YEEEEEEEEEOWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!
Yechh Mother, you’re the one who made it.
Marg, I think Calvin insisted on having it as is evident from Dad’s “I told you”.
Wow! and in the wake of the recent Indonesia volcano eruption.
Probably completely coincidental, Little Sister.
(The sad part is that said area is one of the most volcanically and tectonically active regions on earth and something’s usually going on - or going off - there.)
Yikes! Poor Calvin! I guess he was warned and wouldn’t listen.
I have to say, this one really made me laugh. Hot curry does it to me every time.
When did Calvin ever listen?
Good Morning, Marg, Mike & ♠Lonewolf♠.
Thank you all, who showed sympathy with me and my stolen purse! I couldn’t do much, I recognized it on Friday evening, and no one wanted to work any more! I canceled the credit cards went to police and reported the evil dead! Never again I will put all important cards into the purse!!
Sorry to hear about that, LX013
As usual, Calvin lost his cool.
Here in the South, chili sauce is merely a form of ketchup. Hot sauce is what we call Tabasco and other hot stuff. Is this a regional thing?
No sandfan, here in the North, chili sauce is the same, just glorified ketchup. I suspect that what Mom has served for dinner has been modified just a bit.
Yesterday I cooked noodles with herb. You can eat it sweet with sugar or sharp with chili. I put chili on it, but it didn’t get sharp, hopeless!
Sorry about your lost cards LX013. Happened to me, too. Very upsetting.
Calvin, I hope this fiery episode will make you always obey your parents from now on, BUT having had 3 sons of my own, I doubt it….
Would someone please post again how to make a word in bold type?? Thank you!
Never drink water or soda after eating Texas Pete Extra Hot Sauce Calvin. Your mouth will burn even more. Try a gallon of milk or chocolate milk.
At least he made an adventure out of it.
G’Morning Grog, Marg & Mike!
Upsetting and expensiv! With this money I wanted to buy something for Christmas for my children!
quanticobaby to make a word bold put a couple of asterics both before and after the word. To make it really bold put this # in front of the word with three asteriks and then put three asteriks after the word.
Calvin probably did what my little brother did. Saw the bottle on the table, asked and was told what it was, and dumped the whole thing on his plate.
Calvin did like his dad and put extra hot sauce in the chili.
Gave him an excuse to blow like a valcano.
I’m in the lower Midwest, and chili sauce even here isn’t all that hot. You can get the hot stuff, but you have to know what you’re looking for. Now, if you want some CHILI sauce, get some Chinese chili sauce from an Oriental grocery. You need to be careful with that stuff. And I say that as a person who easily eats jalapenos and seranno peppers whole (my limit is at habaneros – I can eat one, but one is about it).
I love hot sauce, and hot peppers! The hotter, the better!
Eating plenty of hot chilies will both toughen up Calvin and keep him regular!
“It isn’t ‘hot’, it’s ‘spicy’.”
Meanwhile, deep underground …
You are correct, Rattymunk. Make it spicy! WooHoo!
”…Tranquil Mt. Calvin…”???
That’ll be the day! If Calvin is tranquil, you KNOW an eruption is nigh!!
Your mention of cooking noodles and herb reminds me of Peaches & Herb - “Reunited”
I pray that you and your purse will be Reunited, although it seems very unlikely.
I can eat that taco with 8 squirts of hot chili sauce!
Eat that taco.
Sounds like a date with the Thunder Mug is in order…
Love them habaneros (sp?) peppers! I can’t spell them, but I sure do like to eat them!
FerBurger: Good one! Every eruption above ground is usually followed by an eruption below! ☺
Proper chili con carne: food men praise with tears in their eyes.
Marg, glad to hear you again!
Beautiful mountain in the first panel!
Poddleglum2 : I fear, too, I will not get back the purse!
y’know- it could be that DAD made the chili. he did issue the warning, after all.
Dad made the chili.
There he blows I always heard there she blows.
A volcano is a she.
cleokaya, Kab Bush, and Eldo Disc Golf, thanks for your help.
Calvin’s experience reminds me of a similar time when I was in Hermosillo, Mexico with my sister and brother-in-law in a local eatery. My sister told me to test the salsa, which I did, just dipping the ends of the tines of my fork into the mix. I put it in my mouth and about 3 or 4 seconds later the volcano got started. I drank all the water on the table, and was in such pain I couldn’t stay seated, so I wound up running around in the resturant with tears running down my face. I couldn’t talk for at least 20 minutes. When the fire calmed down, our food came -Chimichangas, something I had never eaten before. My brother-in-law proceeded to put a huge dollop of the salsa on his and eat it with no ill effects whatever. I thought my sister was going to have to drive home alone that night, but I was wrong. I have heard that the worst stuff on the planet, literally, is called Dave’s Insanity Sauce. One drop on a soda cracker and you will turn into me. I once saw a little girl who had been fed hot salsa and was screaming in pain for quite a while. If I was ten feet tall and bulletproof I would have done a major parent adjustment on the spot. Best remedy is to drink some soft drink like Coca-Cola…..
Actually, best remedy for something too spicy is milk, ice cream or other dairy(the fats help). Water and alcoholic beverages can make things worse. Mythbusters did an episode on it.
A long time ago when I was travelling in Greece (I think that was the country) and I ate something much too sharp, my friends pointed out as I gulped water frantically that water doesn’t help - in fact it makes it worse. What helps is plain rice, which, as we know, absorbs whatever it’s eaten with.
So I offer this suggestion. It worked for me.
If Calvin thinks chili sauce is like this, wait until he tries oriental Huy Fong sauce. It’s the spiciest you can make your food without going all the way to pure capsaicin.
totally cool I learn so much from ya’ll.
I cure what ails me with a tablespoon of ice cream! : )
I was at a locale restaurant about 10 years ago and they brought chips and salsa to the table before the meal. I asked what it was and was told it was new for their restaurant and to try some because it was only a little spicy. I didn’t know that kind of spicy. I was thinking like my spice rack at home! I had a good size dollip on a corn chip and chewed it down. It caught up to me a few seconds later and I thought it burned a hole all the way down and through my stomach!
Hey, dad, has it ever occurred to you that you’ve told your son so many full-of-crap lies and stories that he’s now at the point where he no longer believes anything you say … even when it’s the truth?!?!?!?!?
LX013: I left you yet another word of condolence on yesterday’s forum regarding your stolen purse.
By the way, a couple of months ago, my cousin had her purse stolen in, of all places, a funeral home! And my mother had her purse stolen a few years ago by a co-worker where she worked (although my mom knew who it was that did it, there wasn’t enough evidence to charge her because she was able to quickly get rid of the evidence before the police got there).
I had my wallet stolen by a polite robber. He took out just the cash then dropped the wallet into a mailbox. The post office put it through their system and had it back to me in a few days. (This is apparently a routine service the Canadian Post Office provides.)
I’d already cancelled all the important cards, but it saved some running around for others!
Lucky for mom that it was shooting out the other end!
Did any one notice: “Tranquil Mt. Calvin”? As if…..
Maybe they got a hold of those ‘peruvian death peppers’ from Garfield. Lol, this one is funny!
