#598 Secretly sniffing your armpits and realizing you don’t stink

Nobody’s gonna tell you you stink.

Honestly, the much-needed finger-pointing, nose-pinching tipoff is harder to spot than an albino Bigfoot.

See, there are limits to the amount of quiet social tips we’re willing to toss out there. When your tag’s hanging out the back of your sweater, we’re on it. When there’s a slimy parsley leaf stuck between your two front teeth, we’ll let you know. And if one of your collars is flipped up, we’ll get it for you.

But if there’s a cloud of B.O. flying off you with big stink-lines going in all directions, well then you’re on your own.

That’s why it’s great to snag a quiet moment to sniff your pits and make sure that deodorant’s working.

  1. AWESOME! I’m first?!?!?!? I’ve never been first at anything (that makes my life sound eerily sad)!

    I’ve been reading the blog for a few weeks now and I finally caught up! It’s sad to think that I will have to wait to see the next one though!

    And I always do this!! And sometimes if my friends are close I can tell them that they smell and to keeps their hands down. They do the same for me too. =D

    1. I know!
      This may be my new favorite site, and would be even if the only awesome thing on it was the albino Sasquatch.

  2. I’m a pro at this!!! Sometimes at the end of a long day I secretly like when I stink a bit! Means I worked hard!!

    1. I thought I was the only one. And knowing that you aren’t fresh makes the shower SOOO much more enjoyable.

  3. I had the misfortune to have a going away party before an early flight. I showered like mad, but the “hangover sweats” were obvious as I sat on the plane. My sincere apologies to the poor lady who had to sit next to me for 3 1/2 hours. I kept reaching up to the air vent while trying to “catch a sniff” about how bad my B.O. badness was. Washing up in the loo didn’t help.

  4. a couple of tips (as learned in yes, band camp, when we spent hours outside sweating profusely):

    – do the arm stretch (like your waking up in the morning) and pretend like your turning your head to look at someone…
    – do a crazy dance with your hand up in the air and do that head turn dance like guys from Night at the Roxbury
    – if the settings right and your with the right person, casually say, “hold on for a sec” — then check. This is especially useful when you are desperate to change the subject or someone needs a good laugh. ;)

  5. Excellent Article! LOL @ Albino Sasquatch. Also good advice, a lot of people stink and don’t even realize it. Check your pits and find out if you’re stinky!

  6. On the old “SCTV” comedy series, Andrea Martin would have her characters do this sometimes. It really cracked me up the way she did it; the expression on her face was priceless. Of course I never, ever do this… (ha!)

  7. This whole thing is kinda weird, honestly. I mean, I don’t even know what this app is for but I guess I will keep it. Whatever.
