Several years ago the Ig Nobel Prize was won by a study on smelly feet that determined that people who think they have stinky feet do, and that those who don't, don't

I find this unrealistic as every real dog I am familiar with seems to regard stinkier feet as more interesting.

/or stinkier anything

What about panties?

I want to know if my schoolgirl vending machine sells authentic used panties, or artificially scented ones.

Not sure if the dog would pass or fail them, just want to know the pass fail rate.

For a friend. A very weird Japanese friend.

My friend's dog puts up a fight for the real ones, I've just never tested him on fake ones.

Maybe the vending machines, where my friend is, always has real ones. Or his dog is easily fooled.

I've just never seen a study on authenticity to be able to even test my friend's dog.

For some reason I have a hankering for hush puppies.
