Dear Jeff’s Naturals Sliced Tamed Jalapeños,

I think mating a jalapeño with a bell pepper is an abomination of nature! Who would think to do such a thing? It’s like cats sleeping with dogs or the lion laying down with the lamb! I’m pretty sure the bible says these things are bad and I doubt a tamed jalapeños is what Jesus (or even Jose) would eat. A harmless jalapeños is like a skinny pig; there’s nothing natural about this idea.

Not everyone is cut out to eat jalapeños. That’s just a fact. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. It’s like being fat. We can’t all be above average! There are winners and losers in this world and not everyone needs to go home with a trophy. Taming the once mighty jalapeño only serves to allow more people to believe they like “spicy” food. Then these people go out and try something crazy like crushed red pepper flakes and complain their food is “too hot” (the big babies!).

I think you need to go the other way. Put more fire into the flame. Challenge people’s manhoods! Put hair on the chest of those who would dare eat your peppers! This would make for a much better and exciting product in my mind, though it might not sell as well with the women.

You have a lot to think about, and, in my opinion, the horticulturists at Texas A&M University have much to atone for. Quit messing with God’s creations.
