NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — I promised my readers to install segments of my 2015 New Orleans Mardi Gras experience. I wish that I had an old-school manual typewriter because that is what we used when I started writing as a “cub reporter” for newspapers in the Big Easy. Meanwhile, I have a question for alimentary canal experts. I want to know if the potency of jalapeno peppers is still “hot, hot, hot” once it passes through the intestines?
TMI??: At the movies yesterday, I used some of those theater jalapeno peppers on a personal pan pizza. My tongue and lips burned a “good” 15 minutes. Last night at home, my stomach started burning up. In the latrine, I had a blow-out from my posterior. My rear-end burned for 7 minutes. Do peppers maintain their potent heat even after going through the digestive tract? Is that even scientifically possible?
Where does the job of the digestive tract end (finito) after doing its job? In other words, what is the final destination of the digestive tract elements after the job is done?
I have seen quite a few movies about the NAZI death camps, and read much about them. I will never get used to the horror. The world is honoring 70 years since the Russian army entered the Nazi Auschwitz death camp to end the German reign of death there. I keep all of those who suffered and died there in my prayers.
