It is described[ by whom? In this segment Jim has the waiter grinding fresh pepper for 35 minutes.
He goes through three pepper mills full of pepper. After the mill gives up they start crushing the pepper in the kitchen with a mallet.
Four bowl fulls later, Jim has enough pepper and proceeds to eat the piece of chicken that was buried in pepper. KC does something similar with fresh Parmesan cheese but stops after two bowls full and has his meal wrapped to go.
There's also a little bit of animation on this DVD. Jim and Don did a call for the ''Terrorizing Telemarketers'' CD where they pretended to be brothers and passed the phone back and forth as the telemarketer asked them questions. Each one would say ''Hold on, let me put my brother on the phone'' and pass it to the other every few seconds. They took this call and had it animated. There are many other great bits on this DVD including Jim drinking and smoking a joint while he test drives a car, the guys going to a supermarket and throwing stuff in people's carts when they walk away from them, Jim and Don performing ''Upper Deckers'' in hotel rooms and more.

The very tall and sometimes intimidating Club Soda Kenny makes a couple of appearances in the DVD and steals the show when he and Jim Norton go shopping for gum. Sounds normal enough until you see Jim Norton acting as Kenny's autistic friend. There's nothing like seeing the uncomfortable look on the store clerk's face as Kenny slaps Jim's hand away from the gum as he goes to grab it. Kenny tells Jim to get the gum but ends up slapping him away saying that he'll get it for him.Meet the Creeps - Pepper
They also go to a supermarket to get some free samples of ice cream.
