White People think Indian Food is Hot.
This clichéd comedic target was common in the magazines that adults read when I was a kid, the particular one I've always remembered had a guy running to the bathroom with flames coming out of his pants in a restaurant with a clearly Indian name. At 10, I recognized the dangers that the comic bravely warned me of. I knew that often political comics took aim at targets that the media didn't dare attack and figured this must be the same.
The first time somebody actually offered me Indian food, I was very nervous. It had a dangerously bright orange color but smelled and tasted great. Thankfully fire did not come out of my ass and set my pants on fire.
