Bernie Madoff Inspires New Hot Sauce Creator

New York City artist Alex Gardega is selling $10 bottles of habanero hot sauce dedicated to disgraced Wall Street financier Bernard Madoff. He calls it, "Bernie In Hell."

But Gardega says he doesn't really want people to put the condiment on food. He warns on his Web site that it's "hellishly hot." Instead, Gardega says he's making a statement about Madoff, who has been accused of bilking investors out of $50 billion.

He tells the New York Post that he got the idea for it while watching TV news about Madoff.

The Manhattan painter designed the label. A chef created the fiery condiment.

The text on the bottle reads, "You can take the money but can you take... the heat?!!!"
