Hot Spice : Friday Fictioneers

PHOTO PROMPT Copyright – Marie Gail Stratford

 

The city was up in arms against the hot sauce factory. The smell of hot spices hung heavy over the town and burned the eyes and lungs, specially the kids.

“Councilors – please do something – we know they can’t buy you”

The council met closed-door and came out unanimous – “Shur-Ah-Chuh Sauce will make the city world-famous. They will filter the air in 15 days.”

The night before as the Council members’ had dinner together, they found the secret of Chinese “Shur-Ah-Chuh” sauce on city’s famous Jamaican Cow Cod Soup. Never in life would they spend a penny on Viagra.

  2. Indrajit, That sounds very familiar. I wouldn’t bet on the decisions of any official. Money talks loud and clear. Well written with a touch of dark humor. 🙂 —Susan

  5. I suppose the Council was more than, “up in arms.” So sorry I couldn’t help it. I giggled way too hard at this. Excellent!

  7. Dear Indrajit,

    Certainly an uplifting story. Guess the sauce rose to the occasion, or should I say made them rise to the occasion. Clever story.

    Shalom,

  13. My grandfather used to say feeding a sow hot pepper would make her come in heat. Well, it may work on swine, but so far it’s had no effect on my wife 🙂

  14. So it’s always in the sauce! Great information to pass along! You are very clever. I agree with Russell’s experiment – I eat hot jalapenos all the time and it hasn’t helped me yet. Oh well – good story! Nan 🙂
