Durian

Translated into Spanish, it says ‘Es como comerse una crema de vainilla en una letrina, y su olor se puede describir como excremento de cerdo, barniz y cebollas, todo mezclado con un calcetín sudado’.

 

Yeah, its that foul.

 

Thanks to shadows CRJ for providing the link to the original Durian image.

Also thanks to Wikipedia for their lovely description.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durian

 

"... its odor is best described as pig-shit, turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock. It can be smelled from yards away. Despite its great local popularity, the raw fruit is forbidden from some establishments such as hotels, subways and airports, including public transportation in Southeast Asia."

 

I am not brave enough to get this close to an open durian.

$50 to eat a Durian? NOT ENOUGH
