Sounds similar to the fragrance bouquet that greets me when I enter the bathroom after my son has been in there.......talk about roadkill!

You mean, the uniquely Clinton-esque fragrance of Eau de Roadkill?

While I was there, a skunk walked by wearing a gas mask. Luckily, there was a UP switcher in the yard that restarted, supplying me with the fresh scent of diesel fumes.
