I Smell Dead People!

New York City is not the best-smelling place on Earth--to say the least. But apparently the Bronx (an area that lies north of Manhattan), is particularly stinky. In recent months, residents have been complaining about odors ranging from the sweet stench of sewer to the unmistakable fragrance of fresh cadaver.

So what does the city do when the complaints start rolling in? They send out odor inspectors--specially trained indivduals whose powerful noses can track down the source of the smells. These brave souls are willing sniff the foulest scents so the rest of us don't have to.

Read the original report in the New York Post.

(Below: The Post's map of the odors wafting through the Bronx.)

Hey, I bet that is not nearly as bad as the girls restroom at my school!

And I was just looking through WAY older posts, when I saw how you guys put up 106 comments! SO COOL! Could we do that? Sounds SO fun...
