Headline correction please
I mean, it wasn't rescued, was it? It still got eaten.
"Trump lookalike cut to bits and devoured by Mexican lovers"
It was just an ordinary evening for Janet Ayers in Portsmouth, preparing a vegetarian chilli for dinner. Ingredients included a trio of peppers – red, green and yellow – from Waitrose. So imagine Janet’s horror on slicing the red Capsicum to find the twisted and toothy mug of US president elect Donald Trump screaming at her. …
ice cream! Which helps after chilli.
As does anything containing fat - capsaicin is fat-soluble and not water soluble. So drinking all that lager with your curry does nothing to remove the burning (other than dulling the CNS) whereas having a glass of milk/lassi does. Especially if it's full-fat milk.
It's called a humorously shaped vegetable (which is a broader category). I assume the vegetable referenced in the article originated on Sir Terry's allotment on Cori Celesti. He probably threw it down just to see if someone noticed...
I would recommend a humorously shaped vegetable section in the bootnotes on El Reg. It might be biting the hand of IT, but sometimes I wonder if the Ankh-Morpork Times tagline wouldn't be appropriate as well... Especially in IT security related articles.
But, but, but... Right now, all over the world people are buying up peppers and slicing them like that in the hope of finding another amusing shot to post to facebook. Sales of capsicums are booming, the economy benefits... And no doubt president elect Trump will be claiming it as the first economic success of his term in office...
Chili isn't from Mexico:
If there is any doubt about what the Mexicans think about chili, the Diccionario de Mejicanismos, published in 1959, defines chili con carne as (roughly translated):
“detestable food passing itself off as Mexican, sold in the U.S. from Texas to New York.”
This was even one step further off, it was "veggie" chili! And true chili doesn't contain beans...
Was teething infant, squalling.
Oddly, that works laterally to get Trump. (never held office, thus teething, finding out that the crowd that has tagged along with him gets to keep status quo, thus the squalling)
Personally, for sweet, I prefer Shepards. Bell Peppers over here tend to be hothouse grown and have almost no flavour. A nice Cali Reaper and you have something that will make your veggie chilli stand up and bark.
Talk Talk & Royal Mail customers have been effected by the Marai worm, and have had their routers compromised and loss of service.
And The Register has some stupid political clickbait shite as it's feature story instead of the above.
FFS, leave your political views at the door.
What's next, religious indoctrination about religion x are all nazi sympathisers.
It's fucking pathetic. We get it, you have your political views.
But this is supposed to be a tech site.
If you're just going to write spazzy 3rd grade articles like this instead of covering actual fucking news, then what's the fucking point.
When the Daily Mail is covering tech articles better than you, whilst you're debasing yourself with articles that wouldn't even make it to the back page of the Mail let alone the headlines, you can fool yourselves that you're all righteous, but you it makes you look like cocks.
1. This is a bootnotes article, always irreverent humour, often not involving tech. If you don't like the mix of humour and news on the Reg, why come here. You must of realised by now, this what they do.
2. Holding up the Daily Mail as a comparison, makes YOU look like a cock.
I'm curious, when did you receive your humour bypass?
I take it the operation was a success. Did they not supply after care? Did they not warn you that you could and would take something that is a clearly humorous completely the wrong way?
Anyway, I wish you a speedy recovery and hope one day you can rejoin humanity as a fully functioning human being. Until then I would refrain from judgement on the internet in general but if you really need to comment I recommend reddit.
Here's to a speedy recover.
Plain old chili is – by definition – vegetarian.
Chili con carne, chili con frijoles, chili con carne y frijoles – those are something else.
Imagine my surprise when, as a naíve lad of about 13 or 14, when I ordered chili rellenos in a Mexican restaurant, and didn't get what I was expecting. Turned out I I loved it – it's one of my favorite dishes.
