"You can always tell when the frost comes out of the ground. That's when all the skunks come."

Well, that pretty much sums up what they're smelling.

Indiana - the springtime isn't for sissies and we've got dan quayle state

It's got to suck when your whole state smells like ass.
 
2004-03-03 12:04:24 PM  
Go to Terre Haute, the smell never goes away.

What's their excuse for the other three seasons?

Thieus is right. There's an unpleasant "fish" kind of smell in Terre Haute. I was at Indiana State University for a week one summer when I was in high school. Yeaaaaarrgggg, that place stank.

/glad to have moved to North Carolina years ago.

Does anyone else refer to these varmints as "polecats?" Do you know anyone who does?

smells like skunks humping

I knew a girl like that. Since I was already there, I finished the job anyway.

Flubby-

Most of my family. Yes I escaped from a hick commune.

Actually, what they don't tell you is that for Elkhart, Indiana the smell of skunks humping is an improvement.

Beware, black cats in Indiana: If you somehow back up against a white paintbrush and get a white stripe painted down your back by accident, you'll have every male skunk in the area beating down the door.

That's how it worked in the cartoons, anyway.

It's either Skunks or this guy driving around your neighborhood.

When my grandfather got ready to leave a gathering he would say "I'm like a tom cat farking a polecat. I ain't had all I want, but I've had all I can stand."

Grand Forks was pretty horrible at times. As you entered town, there was a wonderful potato plant, sugar plant, and sewage treatment plant olfactory trifecta.
 
2004-03-03 04:19:58 PM  
I agree. Great headline. Mine was nowhere near that funny.
 
2004-03-03 04:19:58 PM  
Who told????!!!!


bloomington smells the worse..mainly because of their basketball team..

/purdue grad starting "stuff"...

Maybe it was not skunks, it was two homeless people from Stockholm who were farking each other that stunk up Indiana.


In Boston, you know that summer is not too far off when babies and small children start falling out of windows that are not childproof. I swear, it happens every year.

I am from Indiana and its true,but now I live in the swamp known as Savannah,trust me this place stinks worse than anything I ever smelledd in Indy!I bet it is the brain cells of the people that live here burning up cuz they sure dont use their minds for anything else here in the city of Savannah

Gary, Indiana seems to be where all our local "gang" members come from...

I actually got out of my car in Gary, Indiana and almost retched due to the sulpher smell....I think I would have preferred the smell of skunk spooge...
 
2004-03-03 04:22:28 PM  
Start smoking skunk weed, and you'll eventually enjoy the smell

*better than a "Cleveland steamer"

It could all be avoided if Courtney Love would simply cross her legs.

Being the voice of Florida I'd like to say. I can smell you from here. Now wash your face Indiana.

Skinink;

Howie Carr claims that babies falling out of windows is the first sign of summer in Boston. Kinda like the swans returning to capastano

I'm gonna use that line tonight, if it kills me. Hilarious. Your grandpa rocks.

TFD marks Ind off of his "places to visit" list.

Skunks, a member of the weasel family, have contrasting black and white fur and a long, bushy tail. Typically cat-sized, they range from about five to 10 pounds in weight.

2004-03-03 04:28:13 PM  
Ahh, I love that headline. I always thought it smelled like that, but no one believed me.
 
2004-03-03 04:29:05 PM  
...and it's Capistrano...

/geography Nazi
 
2004-03-03 04:29:14 PM  
Swans dont swallow
 
2004-03-03 04:29:44 PM  
So glad I live in Indianapolis. No skunks, just smog.

Er, wait a minute...
 
2004-03-03 04:30:13 PM  
Shouldn't this have had an Obvious tag?
 
2004-03-03 04:31:16 PM  
Ah Spring, when young men's thoughts turn to humping swans in Capistano and the polecats are gettin' it on in Gary...Indaina
 
2004-03-03 04:32:06 PM  
...Indiana...DOH!

"Skinink;

Funny, I don't listen to Carr, but then anyone would realize the baby thing anyways. Like buying a $1 clip for each window will break the bank.


Swans returning with Pastrami on Rye ?

"Skunks, a member of the weasel family...."

skunks were genetically proven not to be weasels in 1997, these here indiana skunk followin' hicks best be buyin' some new books.

Terre Haute & Gary definately smell. I didn't know about Elkhart though, only been there once. The rest of the state smells ok except for that one area up 65 that has the chicken farm. Good gawd that place smells, even in the dead of winter. It could be worse, you could live in Charleston, WV.
 
2004-03-03 04:38:31 PM  
While in northern cal, it was more like skunks "thumping"-
under car tires every spring. I counted 33 going home
one evening...
 
2004-03-03 04:38:43 PM  
it's the skunk smell in the fall that i am fond of.
 
2004-03-03 04:39:13 PM  
as god is my witness I thought swans could fly.
 
2004-03-03 04:41:33 PM  
Unfreakable=== The ethinol plants we have here generate a helluva bad farking smell.
 
2004-03-03 04:41:42 PM  
Well, I'm just glad I live near the Dunes. No funny smells unless you're crazy enough to swim in Lake Michigan.
 
2004-03-03 04:42:40 PM  
I always wondered why I see so many skunks in the spring. I live in St Louis, but have to travel to the more rural sections of the state regularly. On a recent trip, I counted 7 dead skunks on the highway between St Louis and Jefferson City.
