Stupid Man Tricks

Perhaps The Common Man's greatest fear is that he'll someday find a food too spicy for him to tackle. For a moment, it seemed as though he had found it. The Fire-In-the-Hole style wings of The Common Man's former haunt definitely are a challenge for any real man, and their spiciness tend to overshadow the flavor of the wing and its sauce. That said, any man wanting to prove his testicular fortitude could do no better.

It was with great pride that The Common Man conquered the Fire-In-the-Hole, not because he enjoyed them, but because he enjoyed the knowledge that he could handle the spicy. The Common Man only points this out because a) he hasn't had decent buffalo wings since he got to Wisconsin and is suffering from withdrawal and b) he can totally understand the mindset that causes so many young men to prove themselves through the ingestion of one of God's spiciest creations, the Habanero Pepper. The habanero, typically between 100,000 and 350,000 units on the Scoville scale, represents a true challenge for men everywhere, and is the best and most readily available option for those who want to test their manhood.

But beware, for the Habanero is not for all men. For instance, this young man was full of confidence and bravado, but was chased from the field by the heat.

And as these Morman Missionaries demonstrate, not even the power of prayer is enough to help you escape the heat. Perhaps men are simply lacking the necessary equipment for the job. Indeed, if women can endure the pain of childbirth and the pain of dealing with their menfolk on a regular basis (The Common Wife included), it may simply be best if men left the Habanero eating to their better halfs. Indeed, if this video is any indication, they seem to be better at handling it.
