  9. Really? Cat food, but not shit? I don't even mean baby shit...I mean pretty much any ol' kinda shit.

  11. My dog got sprayed by a skunk a week ago & if I spent eternity smelling Satan's butt crack I would not suffer any more than I did that night. I literally stuffed a Q-Tip smothered in Vicks up my nose. It's personal & recent, but skunk trumps them all for me right now.
