When Chili Powder Is Outlawed...

This one, however, *is* from MA...

Massachusetts store owner thwarts robber with chili powder
STONEHAM, Mass. – A Stoneham store owner said he wasn't intimidated when a robber pointed a gun in his face and demanded the money from the cash register.
Saadat Khan calmly went behind the counter as if he was going to open the register, grabbed a cup of chili pepper powder he sprinkles on food, tossed it in the thief's face, punched him, and sent him packing empty-handed.
Okay, now that is badass right there. Facing a dude with a gun, this guy tosses chili powder - not pepper spray, actual chili powder - in the dude's face, then punches him. Since this is Massachusetts, where we "discourage self help", I expect Mr. Khan (sorry, I have to do this: KHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNN!!!!) to be arrested and charged with assault and battery with a delicious weapon.

And I certainly hope he had a Class A LTC: License to Condiment...

That is all.

If it was Pakistani Capsacin-Curry Powder it could do a world of hurt, opening a can of Paki Whoop-Ass.

So how long will the waiting period and the Sheriff's Okay to buy Paki-Chili Powder will be now?

Or is it just gonna go on the "Not Approved" list?

Some of those Indian chilies make Jamaicans cry.

Ow, my eyes hurt just thinking about that. If it was south Indian or Thai, that dude is going to have burning eyes for the rest of his life.
