Spicy chilli USB drive is "hot hot"

chilli usb.jpgAm I the only one who gets the reference to and reads the title in the voice of the Jalapeno pepper from the Reggae Reggae chicken sub Subway ad (“Oooh mama, too hot, too spicy – hot hot”)? If I am indeed alone in doing that, I strongly suggest watching the ad, and then you can immaturely chuckle to yourself too.

So, this one doesn’t exactly warrant much of an explanation – it’s a USB drive, shaped like a red hot chilli. What isn’t obvious from the picture however, is its ability to store 4GB of computer related stuff and its price tag, that’ll cost you a mere £8.95 here.

And now for some chilli facts because you can never know too much about a chilli’s history, right?:

  • Chilli’s are indigenous to Central and South America and the West Indies, where they were cultivated for thousands of years before the Spanish inquest, which eventually introduced them to the rest of the world.
  • Eating raw hot chilli’s for a dare or a laugh will result in tears and possibly gagging, unless your mouth is made from metal.
  • Lastly, Tezpur, Assam is home to the hottest chilli in the world – the Naga Joloki. It’s smallish and green and rated at 800,000+ on the Scoville scale, which in Laymen’s terms, basically means this thing is military or chemical warfare hot and will no doubt do some serious damage to your mouth (and your insides) if not eaten with caution!
