Ellen DeGeneres
“And now I've got to explain the smell that was in there before I went in there. Does that ever happen to you? It's not your fault. You've held your breath, you just wanna get out, and now you open the door and you have to explain, 'Oh! Listen, there's an odor in there and I didn't do it. It's bad.”
Ellen DeGeneres, My Point... And I Do Have One

John Kennedy Toole
“It smells terrible in here.'

Veneration of Mark Twain is one of the roots of our current intellectual stalemate.”
John Kennedy Toole, A Confederacy of Dunces

Marianne Curley, Old Magic

K. Martin Beckner, Chips of Red Paint

“Bad smells made her angry, they were a personal affront.”
Louise Erdrich, The Master Butchers Singing Club
