Thai WMD

This is pretty funny. I'm surprised it didn't happen in Boston.

Firefighters wearing protective breathing apparatus were called to D'Arblay Street, Soho, after reports of noxious smoke filling the air.

Police closed off three roads and evacuated homes following the alert.

Specialist crews broke down the door to the Thai Cottage restaurant at 1900 BST on Monday where they discovered the source - a 9lb pot of chillies.

The restaurant had been preparing Nam Prik Pao, a red-hot Thai dip which uses extra-hot chillies which are deliberately burnt.

But the smell prompted several members of the public to call the emergency services.

That's my preferred type of WMD. Delicious.

You have to remember, this is the country where they boil a perfectly good roast, then have "spotted dick" for dessert. God only knows what they'd do if they got a whiff of kimchi...
