Naughty Peppers

Do U remember an old rhyme/saying that goes -
“Peter picked a pack of peter peppers…”
{{{Say that fast three times.}}}
Tongue twisted..yet?

Neh!!!...the (peter) peppers version is purely made up by me.
The correct version is 'pickled pepper'
Anyway, let me introduce the star of today's post ...
