It could be a combination of both.

Maybe they make their tanning oil with bug juice.

When the tanning oil and hair gel combine, the pretentious vodka acts as a catalyst, and that's when you get the smell.

I'd even daresay that it's not vodak, but zima.

siva: SwingingJohnson: siva: Those bugs are in Monmouth county, someone please tell me where the smell between exit 14 and 15 on the turnpike comes from.

The smell due to the oil refineries and industrial area north of Exit 11, specifically around exits 12 (Carteret - Rahway) and 13 (Elizabeth).

The main reason NJ usually has the cheapest gas.

I paid $2.09 a gallon in Rutheford on Sunday. Amazing!

nah, the smell is past the refineries. I'm talking closer to the Newark Bay, right before exit 15E. Everyday, every single day I smell poop.

A little further north, it's the Meadowlands, what's left of them. Seriously. The microbes living in the muck under the cattails generate the methane that causes the stink. Driving past in the summertime is always a treat.

Down around Newark Bay it's also microbes producing methane, but frankly there is also a lot of industrial crap dumped in some parts of the bay that enhances the smell. Be happy it's more of the poop smell that you detect.

Take her to NEW JERSEY!!

/Gilbert Godfried joke
//if know the comedian, you understand the all caps

I'd rather not have ever heard that joke if I had to hear Gilbert Godfried say it. The guy's voice makes me want to kill puppies. But kudos to you for crediting it correctly. Glad I read it here instead.

Friggin' stink bugs!

They were introduced in the mid-Atlantic about five years ago. Suffice it to say, this invasion of stink bugs is not going to end any time soon.

The sudden explosion of these bugs came to PA starting this year, I hope it's not a permanent infestation.
