I ask you, is there such a thing as a nice Hojo? Even the name is hideous, the buildings are just an ugly bonus!

By drink I mean sip. I'm not that insane.
For some reason this reminds me of the time a friend of mine in university dared me to eat a spoonful of wasabi and I did.......it wasn’t the nicest feeling.

It's part of the Wyndham Chain, the world leader in overpriced 2 star hotels! Complementary cereal and bedbugs with every stay!

The Wyndham New Yorker may be the only nice Wyndham I have ever stayed in.

Wasabi and pepper are two entirely different kinds of heat. I can also handle a lot of the pungent heat of mustard, horseradish and wasabi, but I prefer the spice from capsaicin and therefore have a higher tolerance to it, to the point that I no longer even find jalapenos spicy.

As an entertaining trick for co-workers, I give one of them a toothpick with a small amount of this heavenly condiment on it, and then eat a tablespoon of it while they writhe in pain. Then walk away without drinking anything.

I am unnatural!

Out of all the super hot peppers, the Scotch Bonnet is by far the best tasting. That sauce I linked to, in particular, has a very smooth, buttery flavour that goes great with sauteed vegetables and fried chicken, as well as pasta.

I have had a Scotch Bonnet before, I agree, totally great flavour!

Lol! I imagine all of the examples posted to have Golden Girls furniture and old TV guides in the nightstands. The bed bugs would be named Rose, Dorothy, Blanche and Sophia.

Edit: I googled Howard Johnson and the first most googled question that appeared was "Is Howard Johnson's still in business?".

I noticed the fugly lineup of hotels on my last visit to the Sausage. As bad as it is it still manages to be less ghetto and horrible than the wood frame shitbox hotels going up around our airport in the bald ass prairie with nothing to hide them for miles.

No! The Mansard Roof rules all in hideous architectural features.
