As some women age, they start wearing stinky perfume for self preservation. Yes, that smell is formaldehyde.

    What smell?

    • Dan of the Day

      The french fry smell coming from the nearest fast food restaurant.

      No, the stinky perfume smell. Geez, I talked about a stink and a smell – I would assume most people would think those were one and the same.

      • Choob

        I can’t smell anything…

      • Yarnspinner

        Actually, stink and smell are different. Smell can be good, bad, or neither. A stink is a bad smell, in the judgement of the snffer.

        But, by the by, you will live longer if you eat only food that has been laced with preservatives. Fact.

      • Choob

        You also decompose slower. Fact.

        Oh, I’m not saying stink and smell are the same thing. I’m just saying I thought it was pretty obvious that the stink of the perfume and the smell of the formaldehyde were from the same source. Maybe Choob likes the smell of formaldehyde, and that’s why he was confused.

        If I have to explain the joke, it is no longer relevant.

      • Dan of the Day

        Which joke are you talking about?

      • Administrator

        Yeah, what joke. Please explain. Well, you don’t have to explain the hole thing, just give us a hint of where to look for the joke.

      • Choob

        None of you have ever heard that formaldehyde deadens your sense of smell? The irony of air fresheners is that they contain formaldehyde.

  • shar_flo

    That explains the nastiness of the smell but how do you explain the fact that they continue to decompose…, oops I mean age, even with it’s use?
