Re: What is the worse thing you have ever smelled

There was a dead deer at the edge of our property (wooded) that was rotting in the July heat.  It was the worst smell ever.  We called the game warden and he came to pick it up.  He put it in the TRUNK OF HIS CAR!!!!! 

 

I cannot smell skunk so I don't know what it smells like.  Whenever my DH smells it, I ask him to describe it.  He just says "putrid". LOL

 

Someone mentioned moth balls.  A person shouldn't smell these for a long time.  They contain benzene (so does gasoline).  It can alter your bone marrow.

@vermint  when I got up and the sun came up I went outside to see if the skunk was dead someplace in the yard all the time being careful to make sure I could get back to the house in case he was laying in wait to ambush me! If only I could have been so lucky to know he was dead.  He was gone but not forgotten!

I once opened a package of chicken that had gone bad.    I didn't buy chicken for YEARS after that............

There ain't nothin' more powerful than the odor of mendacity...  You can smell it.  It smells like death." - The character of "Big Daddy" in Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Patchooli, a dead rat in the wall, Romano cheese, and a  teen age boys room. Oh, I forgot, once a potato fell out of the bag and rotted in the cupboard. It was not good.
