We don't really need oil. We don't really need salt. We don't really need water, I can drink beer.
But I need Sriracha (and garlic) to survive, and a judge has ordered the Huy Fong Foods plant in Irwindale California to curtail operations:
A California judge has temporarily curbed production of the popular sriracha Asian-style hot sauce after residents of a Los Angeles suburb complained of the factory's odour.This is the end of the world!!!
The fumes emitted from Huy Fong Foods' factory in Irwindale are "extremely annoying, irritating and offensive to the senses", Judge Robert O'Brien said.
He ordered the company to cease any operations that cause the odours.
The factory churns 100 million lb (45.4 million kg) of chilli pepper a year.
Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.How will we survive?
Mayor: What do you mean, "biblical"?
Dr Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.
Dr Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...
Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!
Mayor: All right, all right! I get the point!

Truth be told, that I approve the judge's decision, even while I am planning to stockpile absurd amounts of the aforementioned rooster labeled ambrosia.
