The New Hottest Pepper in the World, Moruga Scorpion

The Moruga Scorpion is not a little clawed beast with a poison tipped tail. What it is, is the worlds hottest pepper (currently) reaching 2,009,231 Scoville heat units. It's twice as hot as a Ghost Chile and eating a Moruga Scorpion is apparently more painful than being stung by it's namesake, just check out some videos below of courageous/brain damaged men and women suffering as a result of intentionally consuming it. Kids don't try this at home! (unless your friends dare you, never back out of a dare or you may be considered a punk)

In case you were wondering what the Scoville scale is, here's a picture.
