quicko: capsicum spray

I had always thought pepper spray was pepper as in salt and pepper pepper spray, but it turns out it's pepper as in red pepper, chili pepper, green pepper pepper spray because Australians call it capsicum spray, which is their word for red peppers, chili peppers, green peppers peppers, not salt and pepper pepper.  How peppy!
