TRUTH !!
(But it SMELLED like CRAP !!)

Who Me was a top secret sulfurous non-lethal chemical weapon developed by
the American Office of Strategic Services during World War II, to be used by
the French Resistance against German officers. Who Me smelled strongly of
fecal matter, and was issued in pocket atomizers intended to be
unobtrusively sprayed on a German officer, humiliating him and, by
extension, demoralizing the occupying German forces.

The experiment was very short-lived, however. Who Me had a high
concentration of extremely volatile sulfur compounds that were very
difficult to control: more often than not, the person who did the spraying
also ended up smelling as bad as the one targeted. After only two weeks
it was concluded that Who Me was a dismal failure.
