Striped Skunks (Mephitis mephitis)

Clue/Question:  The skunk would probably get fired from her job because she . . .

Answer:  STUNK AT IT

(Pretty easy, today!  Cute drawing.  I feel bad for the poor little skunk.  From a guy who’s not fond of these artificially flowery scents to begin with, I almost prefer the – VERY – distant smell of skunk.  Some of the smells that you women put up with just boggle my mind.  Nail polish?  Ugh!  Nail polish remover?  Even worse!  Hair dye?  Pee-yeww!  The hair stuff for a permanent?  Even worse!  Potpourri, perfumes, room fresheners, scented candles???  Almost all crap, as far as I’m concerned.  Just bathe regularly and use deodorant, but otherwise be natural.  There’s nothing wrong with a light funk.  Dogs, like yer uncle, don’t like to be thrown off the scent!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    My mom and I did puzzle together and laughed all the way through! I had a stuffed toy skunk as a kid…not a Teddy bear. The neighbors down the street had a pet skunk that they walked on a leash! Skunks are cool! Anyway, puzzle wasn’t too hard, and it was fun to do it with mom who loves crosswords! As for “scents,” I burn patchouli candles and wear a perfume with patchouli in it. Try the candles, YUR, you may like them. If you are a 60’s flower child, it will bring back memories! Peace and love, kids!

    NO WAY, LESLEY!!! Patchouli oil is one of my biggest pet peeves! I don’t know if it is a muskiness, or what, but to me it smells just like BREAD MOLD. It is one SURE way to get rid of me! I am part Tarzan and part bloodhound. My nose is VERY easily offended. I hate it when my wife opens some mail at the dinner table and she opens those folded, stuck together perfume samples.(usually from Macy’s) I immediately lose my appetite.

    But, put me out in the country – in farmland, especially – and give me the distant smell of fresh mown hay, cow poop, horse manure or a skunk and I’m a happy camper.

    Haaaaaaaaa! LOL I’ll take the freshly mowed hay or grass, but not the other things! It’s amazing how smells can change our moods! How about cotton candy on the Boardwalk or bread/cinnamon cookies in the oven?

    It’s hard to go wrong with the smells of food! The smell of cinnamon has been scientifically proven to be a mood elevator. I even enjoy the smell of onions or garlic sauteing. Sure, it CAN be a little intense, but when you consider the outcome of the sauce or dish it’s well worth the assault on the senses. Certain meats cooking WILL turn me off, too. Liver is one of them. Which, I guess, is why it’s frequently cooked with onions . . . to improve the smell. One that is nearly impossible to make the smell more appealing – to me – is tripe. Ugh! Also, a lot of fish, especially when fried, just plain stink up the joint. But, like I said earlier, the smell of most food is a welcome thing. Both in terms of mood, and of memories.
