The Dumbest Thing I’ve Heard All Week

Courtesy of Fox News Channel

As I was flipping through the channels at a snail’s pace (thanks digital TV), I came across this pretty blond chick. She’s one of the many blondes old man Rupert parades on his Fox News Channel. Her name is Megyn Kelly and she can be pretty hot, until she opens her mouth.

Today all her hotness points went right down the tube. You see, she and Bill O’Reilly were discussing the UC Davis Occupy protest in which police officers used pepper spray on protesters. O’Reilly proceeded to ask Megyn about the effects of pepper spray, to which she replied:

“It’s like a derivative of actual pepper,” she responds. “It’s a food product, essentially.”

Wait, pepper spray is a food? Is that like congress declaring that tomato paste on pizza counts as a vegetable.

In an article on the Scientific America website, writer Deborah Blume explored exactly what pepper spray is. And according to her, the type that police use can be five times more potent than the hottest pepper there is (they base that on the Scoville scale, which you can read about in the article).

And before you go blasting pepper spray over your next order of hot wings, there are questions about the lasting side effects of pepper spray. One of the protesters from UC Davis, that was pepper sprayed, says that he and others are still experiencing difficultly breathing and a burning sensation on his eyes. Blume also quotes a university professor who says that there are a lot more chemicals than just ‘pepper,” and some of those can be harmful.

So if pepper spray ‘is a food’, does that make napalm just another way to cook? Are guns nothing more than fancy fireworks? Are missles nothing more than glorified bulldozers?

Saying “pepper spray is a food,” has to be the dumbest thing I’ve heard all week. But then again, I haven’t heard the NFL predictions on ESPN yet.
