"or even a jar of pickles can do tremendous damage."
See, that's why assault pickles, defined in the US as any jar containing more than one quart or ten individual pickles, or pickle parts which are equal to ten individual pickles, are illegal to make, sell, carry, or possess in the US. And the exemption for fresh jalapeno peppers does not apply to the ones in any type of brine or vinegar, those are still pickles even if they're hotter than cucumbers.
No really, you can't make this stuff up....(WEG)
