Untitled

... it's nothing to sniff at.

Nothing good could come of that command.

Pogo said...

But I am open for suggestions.

Jason (the commenter) said...

This must be in a bathroom.

I really wonder about some of the places Althouse hangs out at!

Pogo said...

A bathroom, or the MOMA.

Jason (the commenter) said...

Or a jenkem den!

If this was taken in Madison I'm sure it's certified organic.

Bob Ellison said...

The command raises notions. If there's a scent there, perhaps someone should lift. Perhaps, though, someone should leave the trap shut.

Bob Ellison: If there's a scent there, perhaps someone should lift. Perhaps, though, someone should leave the trap shut.

But Althouse gave this post a "smelly" tag, which suggests she did in fact both lift and smell.

You can't be smelly unless there's something to smell!

Good idea for a tramp stamp.

Chip Ahoy said...

But why why why? Please explain this so I can lay my troubled mind to rest.

Until then this: It's a Midas muffler where people's fingers get greasy all the time and all over the place and Midas is right next door to Sue's Cupcakes.

Sue's has a smell door too for when they tire of cupcakes and achingly yearn for the sweet sweet cool scent of garage.

MadisonMan said...

This will bug me. I've seen something like that somewhere, and I can't remember where.

(It wasn't a tramp stamp, however. LOL)

Ann Althouse said...

I didn't lift and smell, but Meade did. I stood back but still caught a whiff

Powerful stuff!

wyo sis said...

The visual is so icky I can't stand to contemplate what the smell would be.

Lem said...

My first thought .... Sniff ...
Cocaine

When deer are rutting they lift their lips and smell. The term is flensing. You Connies would know this if you didn't shoot your deer before having sex with them.

Zero commemorated the passing of 1 of Americas great heroes by releasing...a picture of himself!!! Can he be any...I just realized I have no adjective to describe what Zero is, he is beyond description in his...egotism? Closest I can come I guess.

Oh! In the picture, Zero is looking up at a crescent moon and a single star. More of that NASA outreach to the ragheads.

He was just reminding the US that you didn't build that(the space shuttle). Someone ele had a hand in it(the ragheads).

THE MEME

Do you have to pull his finger first?

TY KYLIZ

I get points for being close though right? This is like Horse shoes?

Carnifex said...

Wyo Sis

Oh! I thought you meant ME! 'Cause I've been called that before.

Ciao bella.

@Ky Liz

Don't take too much of what I say as the literal truth. I'm a smart ass who's ass is smarter than his brains.

Chip Ahoy said...

This mystery hole that formally invites you to smell, and distressingly is on a greasy wall, is this hole beer or cheese related?

Carnifex said...

Seamus, having survived his invigorating trip on the roof of the Romney family car lived, gave the family a warm and fuzzy feeling in their hearts.

Zero's puppy, nameless in Indonesia, gave him a warm and fuzzy feeling in his stomach, because it was warm and fuzzy when he ate it.

Got this off Senator Blutarsky and have been waiting for a cafe to link it.

It's the press release Nixon would have given if something had gone calamitously wrong on Armstrong and Aldrin's moon landing.

I defy anyone who was alive then to read it and not feel their blood run cold.

Michael Haz said...

That isn't a sign one wants to see on a kilt.

There's no rule of law.

Retroactive tariffs on importers of solar panels.

It started with Chrysler and GM bondholders.

Never invest in the US, is the lesson.

How's the job situation, by the way.

rhhardin said...

Now I'm curious about the 70's scratch'n'sniff issue of Playboy.

Paco Wové said...

Must be one of those mysterious "Wisconsin Supper Clubs" we've all been hearing about.

Pogo said...

Lift-to-smell does work to check a toddler's diaper.

Rusty said...

If the marks on the wall are anything to go by, I'll pass.

EMD said...

Reptile house? Zoo related?

The Columbus Zoo has a hole where you can smell simulated Komodo Dragon breath. It's fairly nasty.

prairie wind said...

Not sure my memory is good here but I think Nebraska's Schramm Park had a lift-and-sniff door like this. Can't remember what we were smelling, though.

Lem said...

(CBS News) With polls showing the presidential election shaping up to be a very competitive contest, one of Mitt Romney's key goals in the coming weeks will be developing voters' trust, according to CBS News political director John Dickerson.

For best Political Director...

Carnifex said...

To paraphrase Kilgore--"I love the smell of mystery stank hole in the morning. It smells like"--oh, I don't know...teen spirit? A panicking Zero campaign? Use your imagination here. Oh! An OWS demonstration!!!

Carnifex said...

Don't know about this next one--Moochies twat. Ewwww!

EDH said...

Looks like some shit-stained, glory-hole guillotine.

Thanks for sharing.

Aridog said...

Simple question: If something has a trap door over it to contain an odor, why would anyone wish to lift it? If one were to pass by a line of porta-potties, would one open each door to check the smells?

Palladian said...

Not going to call anyone a fag today, kentuckyliz, the way you did in a thread yesterday?

Ann Althouse said...

Those brown "smudges" are actually graphic images that depict the source of the smell.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Pull my finger.

Nah. No thanks.
