Homer eats a chili

03.  The Merciless Peppers of Quetzlzcatenango

The chili connoisseur — who legend has it has carved his fabled wooden spoon out of a larger wooden spoon — has finally met his match when Chief Wiggum whips up his recipe, complete with peppers so hot that they send Homer into a pseudo-acid trip. The only way our hero can even stomach the fiery Guatemalan import is to line his mouth with wax (ironically it’s Ralph Wiggum — the son of the vicious chef — who gives Homer the idea.) A few spoonfuls of the zesty beef concoction, and Papa Simpson begins to question his entire life. Luckily, a talking fox leads him back to his one true love.
