A Handful of Dirt asks a person five questions they wouldn’t normally expect or receive in any other credible interview.
In consulting the Serendipiter Bag o’InquiryTM, we pose a series of questions to come up with a bit of knowledge unknown before – a handful of dirt.
Would you buy food products from this man? Of course, you would. The Undertaker of HauntedHotsauce.com has “combined flesh-eating zombies with spicy food products to create zombie themed hot sauce for your Halloween party or other creepy event!” The world of hotsauce is weird on its own; the Undertaker and HauntedHotsauce only exemplifies how strange it can get.

What was the last book that had a strong (negative or positive) affect on your life?
I don’t have the patience to read long novels so I read short scary stories and how-to books instead. The last book I read was “How To Haunt Your House: Book 2” by Shawn and Lynne Mitchell. As a result, my Halloween home haunt, “Moonlit Hill Cemetery”, came out Fang-tastic!! I might also recommend “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” by Alvin Schwartz, illustrated by Stephen Gammell.
How did you come into following your particular calling in life (editor’s note: in this case, Haunted Hot Sauce?)
I have an October birthday and went to Disney’s Haunted Mansion when I was an impressionable 6 years old so I’ve always had a love for Halloween and all things creepy! I’ve also always had a taste for hot sauce and spicy foods! Combining these things seemed only natural to me. I learned to make the kinds of hot sauces that I like, gave them creepy names, designed creepy labels for them and sealed them inside little coffins! Haunted Hot Sauce was born! (or “unearthed” as it were) I created my first prototype “hot sauce bottle in a coffin”, popped it up on ebay and it sold for $80.00! I knew I’d hit a nerve with zombie-loving hot sauce aficionados like myself!
What is an influence on your current work/upcoming work that people would be surprised to find out?
Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein of Misfits fame contacted me a couple years ago wanting to do a sauce. Doyle’s MADE IN HELL Hot Sauce was the excellent result of that collaboration! Keep an “eyeball out” for a new sauce by Haunted Hot Sauce’s Undertaker and Doyle coming soon!
Which music group/performer would you enjoy seeing chased by rabid wolves?
I would love to see Puff Daddy or P. Diddy or Dip Shitty or whatever that talent less, cocky f*#& calls himself, being chased into the forest by rabid wolves, while dragging a 10 pound lucky ham!
What would the Devil serve you for breakfast in Hell?
I would start with a couple extra-spicy Bloody Marys, their glasses rimmed with a mixture of salt and coarse ground black pepper, garnished with celery, green olives, a cocktail shrimp and a pepperoncini pepper! For breakfast I’d have a seafood omelette consisting of crabmeat, crawfish tails, sharp cheddar cheese, mushrooms, tomatoes and diced jalapeno peppers, smothered in Haunted Hot Sauce of course! Breakfast would then continue into the afternoon with some ice cold beers, served Chelada style with salt and lime!
