From the “don’t try this at home” files, we found an article courtesy of NEWS.com.au in which two daring gents take on the hottest chili pepper in the world, the Naga Jolokia. It has a rating in excess of one million Scoville units, making it approximately three times hotter than a habanero (which rates in at a paltry 200 to 300 thousand). Fortunately, there were video cameras there when the courageous duo (read: idiots) decided to down the peppers.

Although the footage pretty much unfolds exactly how you’d expect, with lots of pained grunting and a large consumption of milk, it’s still worth watching if for no other reason than to admire the awesome shorts of the guy on the left.

Those shorts might be the only thing more painful than the chili.
