Is this the world's hottest curry?

A curry so hot it requires diners to sign a disclaimer before eating has been launched.

The Bombay Burner sees two of the world's hottest chillies, the Dorset Naga and the Scotch Bonnet, brought together for the lamb-based dish.

The Dorset Naga registers 1million on the Scoville Scale, which measures the spiciness of chillies just one level down from the pepper spray used by US police.

To eat hemorrhoid cream?

This is the best place to go with your knife and folk. Manchester is the home of the hot curry, believe me I went to uni there and I've still got the burns!

I went to uni there too. I've since been there many times & in my experience curries are generally hotter in Bradford.

I'm sure this was on the popular Chris Evans' radio program on Wed. The man that makes it, didn't want to eat any.

I'm all for hot stuff, but not necessarily curry.

It is definitely not Chris Evans that is popular but radio shows are often popular. Perhaps you needed some commas before Chris and after Evans.

Odd, I had heard he was a Dick. Perhaps he's a John Thomas.
As for his radio show I can't find any reliable figures for his audience but I bet it's less than 10  million, so something like 5 out of 6 Brits prefer not to listen to him.

Nope. Definitely a Thomas the Tanker.
