    I'm talking along the lines of burnt popcorn, Limburger cheese, cabbage, curry or any fermented food product that smells like a dead Frenchman's big toe.

    Let's hear it, members and moderators.

    Did someone fart?

    No. Burnt popcorn sets off the break room smoke alarm.

    Gout in French is goutte.

    You've missed me, haven't you big boy? I can tell.
    I'm sorry we haven't had time for the old dance medleys of yore.
    This was a sincerely placed question as my office currently smells like a liberal mix of pickled onion, Doritos and, yes, fart.

    Pickled onion ... reminds of the time I ate ... well, nevermind.

    Never really considered the smell when I decide to cook at home, though it's different in the office. Would try not to cook fish or any ethnic foods that might be offensive. Woman who sat not too far from my desk ordered a tuna sub from Jimmy John's one day, then got pissed when I was giving her shit about how bad it smelled. It was disgusting.

    I love curry and am a pretty adventurous cook but I won't make it in our house. Our house is open concept so no way to seal the kitchen odors.

    I used to work with a guy who burned microwave popcorn every single time he tried to make it. People were ready to kill him.

    I love that maple Jimmy Dean sausage from the tube. Fry dem sumbitches up and make some quick biscuits. MMMmmm. But that shit stinks up the house for a week.

    I think a dead Frenchman's toe might be preferable to burnt popcorn. That smell lingers forever.

    What do they call a quarter pounder with cheese?
