Feedback: Top User Comments Of The Week [Oct. 7]

Welcome to another edition of our weekly Foodbeast “Feedback,” where we feature your Facebook comments, and respond directly to your views on our recipes and stories.

The week was wild, and full of some crazy food stories, and your comments were just as crazy, per usual.

We saw a guy’s questionable move to smoke the world’s hottest pepper out of a bong, and even some cool horror-themed Happy Meal concepts. You guys responded to our stories through Facebook, and now it’s our turn to respond back.

We always appreciate that you read our posts, and take the time to add your own commentary.

Here’s what made the cut this week. Think you can make next week’s list?

STORY:McDonald’s ‘Horror Happy Meal’ Concepts Would Scare The Crap Out Of Children

I’d like to think that McDonald’s isn’t as scary as you make it out to be. I can’t be certain, but I want to believe I haven’t been eating anything sketchy at the Golden Arches. Fingers crossed. I’m putting my trust in them. In my heart of hearts. Yeah, I’ll just leave it at that.

Story: Whisky-Flavored Pocky Sticks Are The Latest Snacks From Japan

We hadn’t thought of Bill Murray, but that’s a nice Lost in Translation reference that we missed out on. Bill Murray should have shot the ad for their Whisky Pocky, but there’s a chance he’d get yelled at by the Japanese director.

Story: Taco Bell Has Low Key Become One of America’s Healthiest Fast Food Chains

That’s a good question, Jamerson. If I were to take a guess, I’d say people might be sensitive to the hot sauce, which could ring true for anything. I doubt our stomachs care too much for being doused in a fiery liquid. I don’t know. Just a guess, but now I want to find out for sure.

STORY: Watch These Guys Throw The World’s Hottest Peppers On Hot Cheetos And Eat Them

“Dumb asses way too much hotness.”

I say the same thing when trying to watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Story: This Is What Happens When You Smoke The World’s Hottest Pepper

I’m 74 percent sure this comment has some copypasta to it, but still rings true. This guy has to be the dumbest person of the week. At least he didn’t chop up the pepper and snort it.

Story:Watch These Families Start A Massive Brawl At A Chuck E. Cheese’s

Hopefully none of the Chuck E. Cheese’s workers tried to stop the brawl, because they really don’t get paid enough to be peacekeepers. Their best move was probably just to call the police and watch the madness, hoping they don’t have too much to clean after.

Story:Here Are Some Of The Weird Things Starving College Kids Eat And Rarely Enjoy

Like the great DJ Khaled would say, “You smart. You very smart.” Solid strategy for staying away from these college struggle plates.

This Is What Happens When You Smoke The World’s Hottest Pepper

For anyone who has heard the term “smoke that fire” or “fuego” it’s typically used in regard to smoking a high-grade strain of cannabis.

Well, for the man who took a huge bong rip of the Carolina Reaper pepper, AKA the world’s hottest pepper (its heat level clocks in at a lethal Scoville level of 2.2 million units), that term took on a whole new meaning.

If you want a lesson on what can happen if you test the boundaries of what should and should not be smoked out of a bong, watch and learn from the mistakes of the man who thought puffing on the Carolina Reaper was a good idea.

To be fair, YouTuber Ted Barrus, the self-describred “fire-breathing idiot” — because of his propensity to film himself eating spicy things and smoking various strains of weed — claims this is the stupidest thing he’s ever done for his YouTube channel.

“I am a professional, though, when it comes to bong rips. I’m a bud tender, so uh, I have a little expertise bong ripping things.” – Ted Barrus, Bong ripping Carolina Reaper man

For those who’ve had experience eating spicy foods, it’s common knowledge that drinking water only makes things worse.

Ted made a huge mistake by chugging the water post-rip. While Ted survived the Carolina Reaper bong rip challenge, his ego might not have.

Maybe just stick to the stoner stuff next time, Ted.
