Sometimes the simplest explanation is the right explanation

The Doktah came into the lab one morning and said, complaining, "Why does it smell bad everywhere I go?" Then she paused, while I smirked at her.

"Wait, that didn't come out the way I meant it," she said.

In my defense, Philadelphia has a nasty stench in the summer (okay, most months but particularly the summer). If you've never had the pleasure, walk outside on a hot, muggy day in the city of brotherly love when it hasn't rained in about a week. There is a lovely breeze blowing from the south (where the aromatic recycling plant and refineries lay) that mixes ever-so-well with the aromatic piquant fragrance of the trash that has been collecting in the gutters. Mix that with the "steam" which rises from the steam vents which has the distict odor of its latest rodent casualty and you have the makings for, what I like to call, Philly Phunk. And I'm not talking MoTown. So if you find yourself in Philadelphia, it will smell bad everywhere you go too. (Disclaimer: Philadelphia is a great city, and I miss it very much. The smell is totally worth is if you consider the excitement, culture and overall great time one is able to have in Philly. Just be warned, it stinky.)
