A word of advice: don't order this monstrosity without ice cream, or if you have a weak will.

Last week, date night for me and my husband meant a trip to Buffalo Wild Wings. Don't judge us. We're simple.

Anyway, in the eleven years I've known him, he's never once uttered the words, "this is too hot for me!" when it came to a meal. In fact, the more jalapeños for him on something, the better!

As we looked through the menu, we both were drawn to something called Scorpion Rum wings. I wasn't brave enough to try them, but he was. This was the result...

You can actually see him crying here! What you can't see is his hurt pride, or the fact that this went on for the following hour after the meal. Nope, I'm not exaggerating. Some people just can't handle them, folks!

Buffalo Wild Wings describes this item like so, "[...] hotter than Blazin’®, this sauce has the sting of scorpion, habanero and chipotle peppers, plus Myers’s Dark Rum to provide a hint of sweet." I'm guessing he missed the sweet part! His order also came with a bit of vanilla ice cream to balance the taste, but for him, it wasn't enough.

Let's all give Will credit for trying!
