It's Houston.  Isn't that normal?

Move to 'cattle country', act surprised by stench. Dipshiats.

This is probably a good time to explain the differences between largely rural communities, and a major metro area of nearly 3 million...

Please.  The Bayou City.  That's chamber of commerce speak for "Don't mind the open sewer culverts running through the city".  And let's not even get into the flying cockroaches, swarming every available light source on those humid evenings.

Exactly. Spent some time in western PA and the stench wafting over from the Buckhole state was horrible.

Worst smell? Is that official? Did the Houston City Arbiter of the Stink make a ruling on this?

So there ISN'T a feedlot/slaughter house/meat processor nearby? The truck driver was a tourist? Or VERY lost?

You're not wrong, but the map isn't clean to the degree you want.

Tripe is delicious. I went to an Asian restaurant one time, Philippine I think, and they had this soup. It's some kind of tamarind soup with vegetables in it and tripe. It was very delicious, I got addicted to it. Too bad I can't go to that restaurant since anymore since it's far away. I just tried to learn how to cook it but I can't seem to find the tamarind powder used for the soup.

I remember that famous zoning in Houston... there is none.

I'm sure the smell is offal.

Take a trip through Amarillo sometime. Lovely smell, especially in the Summer.

Believe it or not, but Knorr makes a tamarind soup mix that's not bad if you can't easily get good tamarind powder. You can find it easy on Amazon (but you can also find loads of tamarind options on there in general, too).

My family has land out in east Texas where there used to be tons of chicken farms. You could smell the trucks hauling chickens well before and well after they drove by depending on the wind direction.

Sorry, the firs.... My original take came off a bit snarkier than intended. Fort worth may be a better example  - home to some of the largest stockyards in Texas and full integrated in an urbanized city.

However, I think we can both be united in mocking folks that move near a ranch in the middle of nowhere and start complaining about it...

Grew up in Dairy country. I remember those halcyon days when they would drag out the ginourmous sprinklers and cover the fields in sileage slurry.

There is.  And it's larger and more bizarre than most places.  They just don't call it zoning and don't make it a specific section of their law.  But it's definitely there.

I didn't see what he had spilled in the road
I want to throw up just thinking about that smell

And, if all else fails, try HP Sauce (which is flavoured with Tamarind).

We had the same problem in Modesto until the county forced the Tallow Works (rendering plant) to close because of violations. Now farmers have to ship their dead cows about 100 miles away.

Is Huston also the Texas city that floods real easily because their lack of regulations let people pave over so much of the ground that there's not enough exposed to absorb rain water?

That's just offal!
