The best defense against pepper spray is A salt rifle.
Sorry, its been a while since I went punning for you...
INFOMERCIAL from ME.
While out at breakfast with my TOPS friends, Rosemary grabbed the salt and pepper shakers and said Watch This.
She demonstrated the perfect way to pepper your eggs. Hold them bottom to bottom and gently turn the salt shaker round and round touching the bottom of the upside down pepper shaker.
It's just like the fancy pepper mills.
