First | Previous | 2020-06-29 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Midnight Strike

{Garfield and Jon, with a glass of water between them, look at each other eagerly...}
Jon: Hot pepper eating contest!
{Jon eats a Jalapeño}
Jon: Jalapeño!
{Garfield eats a Cayenne}
Garfield: Cayenne!
{Jon eats a Habenero}
Jon: Habanero!
{Garfield eats a Pepper X}
Garfield: Pepper X!
{Garfield becomes so hot that his entire body turns RED, and flames Jon}
SFX: FOOM
Garfield: You win...
{Jon has been disintegrated into a pile of ashes, and is unable to respond to Garfield}

The author writes:

Since the publication of SRoMG #1940: Garfield Plus an Even Spicier Pepper, Ed Currie, who created the Carolina Reaper, created Pepper X, a pepper that he claims is twice as spicy. Though unconfirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records, this would mean that Pepper X is 3.18 million units on the Scoville scale.

I would've had Garfield eat a Dragon's Breath pepper, as it is hotter than the Carolina Reaper also, but it was unseated from its title only months after it claimed it. So in the interest of being current...
