If you've been living under a rock (and you aren't a venomous snake), chances are you've probably seen the eponymous Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger video. If you haven't, need a reminder, or just want to watch it for the millionth time, here it is:

Now, you're probably asking yourself: what's a food writer doing writing about honey badger?

Before you come to any ghastly conclusions, check out this totally cool Kickstarter from Paul, Chris, and Leigh-- a team of cooks hoping to make a barbecue sauce as kickass as the vicious animal that inspired it.

What makes this different from all the other meme-inspired brands out there? Check out this video of taste-tests from around the Bay Area on the 4th of July-- a time and place where people are hella mindful of good-ole fashioned American barbecue spice:

What sets this apart from all the other flash-in-the-pan meme foods (everyone who's ever been inspired to do an I Can Haz Cheeseburgers, we're looking at you) is that it actually appears to be delicious. Even better, one of the first words out of all the testers' mouths is that the sauce is spicy.

How many barbecue sauces can brag about half as much?

At present, the team is just under three-fourths of the way towards making their goal of delicious honey badger barbecue sauce a reality. The incentives are pretty darn good, too. The most exciting one? That Triple Strength Cobra Honey Badger sauce.

If the regular strength stuff was made with four habanero peppers per bottle, we can only imagine what the Triple Strength stuff tastes like.

But barring having a ton of money to donate, you can pick a bottle starting at ten bucks for now. Get it while it's hot.
