i really dont mind the doo doo smell really, what i do mind is the pepper-urine-ass smell of cheap perfumes and tragic men's cologne like axe and bod man :puke: i would take the smell of manure over that any day ;)

To be honest, I'm right there with you if I had to compare the two... No cologne for this boy... No thank you! The poo does get to me after a while though... Oh well, it's only for a short time... I remember going to a town that had a paper mill in it and it stunk 24/7... They said they where used to it but as an outsider, the stench was incredible... Then of course we have our ‘wonderful’ rendering plant... Blaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Every time I pass that thing I roll up the windows and turn off any vent and even after that, it still makes its way inside...
