I've been using a similar product for years. I spray the backside of my shorts with the product, and my farts, they smell like roses!!

"Momma" prefers oranges however, and daughter Nikki like lavendar.

Everybody says the "pleasure is all theirs" to be around us.

When we have a garbage truck in the shop we have a vanilla extract that we spray. Smells kind of like Lucky Charms breakfast cereal mixed with garbage afterwards, but it's better than the alternative.

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.....and vice versa.

That "gravy" is full of protein! The worst are the trucks that pick up from grease traps (Valley Protein, et. al.). The motels won't even let them park nearby most of the time. It turns my stomach just thinking of the stench.

Whne I was in Junior High someone tipped over the grease trap at the school just after the weather started to warm up. The grease ran down the street and covered probably about a mile worth of the road's length. Ah, the aroma gently caresses my nostrils, stimulates my olfactory senses, and gives me butterflies in my stomach even still. The next school year there was still signs of it in gutters.

Worst smelling vehicles I ever had in the shop were used in hog lots. Two hours on the outside wash rack with a pressure washer before you would even think of doing anything to the truck. Amazing how that smell will permeate any, and everything, then linger for days.

Sort of like that gift that "keeps on giving".

Lipstick on a pig.

The worst thing I've pulled is a 30 yd compactor from Golden Corral after it sat in the 100 degree sun for a week.

Same one we ate at?

That one and two others in the area.

Lots of people run through that one on Capitol street. Peoria, IL just gave the OK for a Golden Corral to be built yesterday. Can't remember if it is for one, or two restaurants.

Sure was hot when I was there in July. Felt just like home here at the center of the earth.

We had an old F-350 stake body truck on the farm,needed a rear,so my grandad bought one that no longer ran from a neighboring farmer,had been the "feed" truck on a turkey farm all its life! that stench was foul! (no pun intended) never in my life have i seen a baked on,dried ,covered with turkeyshit mess! normal few hour job took me the best part of a weekend! seems petrified turkeyshit is impervious to all manner of cleaning methods ie:steam,solvents etc! even today if a pass a poultry farm makes me a little nauseous!...........Mark

reminds me of working in a garage in the '70's. We had to service the Holly Farms equipment. BIG poultry outfit in the south, bought by Tyson Foods in 1989. They kept 2 busses in Cumberland, with seats in the front half, and ramps on the back to haul a forklift. The chicken catchers rode the busses to the chicken houses where they caught the chickens and put them in crates and they used the fork lifts to load the crates onto flatbed trailers. Rainy days were the worst...chicken poop, feathers, all sorts of chicken house filth dripping on you...

Producer of poorly photo-chopped pictures since 1999.
