(The Takeout)   I wish my armpits and nether regions smelled like Fritos. I think that might be helpful, but here I am trying to do something about them using products like Old Spice or Axe   (thetakeout.com) divider line

I have 8 frito-smelling paws in the room with me.

You have to get up close and personal to smell them - like when I trim the floof on their feet.

I live too deep in bear country to want to smell like food.

I'd say smell like Axe, even bears fear some levels of evil stench, but smelling like Axe vs. being killed and eaten by a bear is a pretty tough call, honestly...

For the shoe-wearing humans, foot powder made from cornstarch will do it on a hot day.

Not too sure on the brand, though. Massive Doritos.

Maybe, not massive. This phone is driving me crazy

Bears, like their cousins dogs, don't have sweat glands except in their feet.

Bear paws may smell like fritos, though you might not notice that if you are up close with one.

Bears may use their feet for scent marking.

Mysterious Bear Dance Explained
Brown bears paw the ground to leave one another smelly messages

For decades bear biologists have known that bears engage in a delightful ramble variously dubbed "sumo strutting," "cowboy walking" or, simply, the "bear dance." Many researchers have guessed at the reason, but a recent study finally offers solid clues.

As they walk, the bears vigorously twist their feet into the ground. Sometimes they step into footprints left behind by other bears after giving the prints a good sniff. Some have referred to these collective tracks as bear highways because they become well traveled over time.


Neither of those studies say what bear paws smell like, though the Chinese who use them for medicine would know.

Anyway, here's a "cowboy walking" video which says it is just physical dominance.

Male Bear "Cowboy Walking"
Male bears exhibit this behavior during breeding season. This stomping and posturing is a way to announce their presence and dominance to other males. Notice the other male in the background at the beginning that is also posturing.

"So a couple of guys don't rinse out their socks. Picky, picky, picky. Myself, I kind of like that corn chip smell."

/lol, als-Kind both my cousin and I would save our expended fireworks and gun-cap-strips to put "in the underwear drawer"

Do they also get Dorito Mouth and Cheeto Ear?

That's a weird wish.

And I say that as a person who has made weird wishes.

Old Spice?
So you are trying to get busy with the "daddy issues" women?

I've always said that if a woman wants to attract a man she shouldn't use flowery perfumes. She should have some kind that smells like bacon, cinnamon, vanilla or beef. Basically any kind of food product.

2-acetyl pyridine is the name of the compound in question.   I used to use it to train people on beer [malt] flavor, and I would regale them with the tales of dog feet bacteria.

Was at a ferret rescue and they had one ferret that smelled like grape soda on the back just before where the tail starts.
