Re: Stench sends folks into frenzy (The News, Sept. 12).
Wow, manure stinks, something I thought every body knew.
I am sure that it was a stinky day, but I live on the north side of Lougheed Highway, so I am used to it.
And for people who do not know, here is a breakdown: we have pig manure, cow manure, horse manure, chicken and turkey manure. They all stink.
And let’s not forget fish. So if we do not like the smell, let’s stop eating all these animals from which these smells originate. So no more pork or beef or chicken or turkey.
And no more mushrooms, because they stink, too.
So people, no more bacon and eggs, no more milk and butter, no more corn, because cornfields use a lot of manure. And no more lambs or rabbits.
If we have those animals no more, maybe we can stop climate change, and we can call became happy vegetarians.
But, of course, then all those farmers would be out of work, and that would be a totally different type of stink
