Dilbert's Scott Adams Learns to Chop Red Peppers

As Scott Adams was chopping jalapeño peppers, he failed to follow the sound advice that he should use rubber gloves. Instead, once done, he washed his hands -- making sure he did not touch his eyes, membranes, and genitalia -- and carried on.

At first everything appeared to be fine. But five minutes later he felt a tingle on his hand, which then turned into a warm sensation, which then turned into... well, Adams explains it best:

Imagine turning a broom upside down, so the pointy bristles are facing up. You take your hand, palm facing down, and bounce it on the pointy bristles. Can you imagine how uncomfortable that feels on your hand? Okay, good.

Now imagine that a giant troll sees you playing with the broom. He snatches it out of your hand, chews the handle into a point and shoves it so far up your ass that you can taste it. Then he uses you like a huge flyswatter to kill a nest of porcupines that are living in his salt mine. My hand hurt like that.
