I was watching MythBusters the other week & they were trying to get a skunk to spray them to see which home remedy took the smell of best. They couldn't get the skunks to spray tham so they tried a commercial a skunk scent & the smell dissappered so fast that they couldn't do the experiment. I sat there the whole time wondering who in their right minds would want a skunk to spray them! Talk about a nasty smell!! GAG!

i wonder, do they synthesize it? i'd hate to be in quality control that day....
Skunks, not people, make skunk spray. It come from glands in the anus and is used as a defense. There is a synthetic chemical called "skunk oil" that is used to make natural gas stink so that leaks can be detected, but I don't know if that is chemically the same.

lol, bang just pictured you and your dog in a new doggie food commercial. the camera is in close on your pit bull, slurping away on one of the raised food bowls. then a louder slurping starts in the background, your dog stops and looks up. the camera pulls back to reveal you and your dog slurping away on bowls of food...

My stomach feels like it is collapsing in on itself when I get hungry. Sometime it also growls. If i wait too long then I become painfully indecisive on what I want to eat. My wife should get a medal for having to deal with me. She asks me a million questions until she hits upon something that I want to eat. How about grilled cheese? No. How about chicken? No. Pizza? No. cereal? No. Sandwich? No.

Yes I can be a real pain to live with :oops:

That brings back memories. When I was a child, every year, my parents and I would drive from Chicago, Illinois to Lac Du Flameau, Wisconsin. I wasn't allowed to open the car windows because my father claimed that it ruined the aerodynamics of the car and decreased gas mileage. As if it wasn't bad enough that my father smoked cigars, invariably we ran over a skunk. This would mix with gas fumes and inevitably the smell of my own vomit.

Years later, I found out that standup comedian, Jake Johanson, had the same experience.
