Chunky’s Burger Waiver States it’s an extremely hot burger, is it that hot?

On September 24 2010, I took the Four Horsemen Challenge during the challenge I realized this burger was no joke. I wrote on Facebook to say,
“This burger is no joke; it’ll bend you over and make you “squeal like a pig.” I truly believe there’s nothing that can fully prepare anyone on the “Wrath of the Four Horsemen.”
