Strip by: pookypal

Jon: Hot pepper eating contest! {There is a cup of water between Garfield and Jon}
Jon: Jalapeño! {Jon eats a Jalapeño}
Garfield: Cayenne! {Garfield eats a Cayenne}
Jon: Habanero! {Jon eats a Habanero}
Garfield: Trinidad Moruga Scorpion! {Garfield eats a Trinidad Moruga Scorpion}
SFX: FOOM {Garfield breathes fire)
Garfield: You win... {Garfield has drunk all the water}
Jon: Then why am I not happy? {Jon is burnt}

The author writes:

My guess that the reason Jim Davis made up the "Peruvian Death Pepper" is because he was unaware of any pepper spicier than Habanero. But, thanks to the internet, it's easy to find out the current hottest pepper is the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, thus no longer having any need for the "Peruvian Death Pepper".
