Mystery solved?



The city’s Department of Environmental Protection (did you know we had one of those?) claims to have discovered the source of that weird maple syrup smell that periodically wafts over the city: a factory in New Jersey that develops and makes flavors. According to them, the smell comes from a reaction that occurs during the processing of fenugreek seeds.

I still prefer my explanation, which is that the city is testing spreading patterns of gases to help with response planning in the event of a gas attack. If it’s Frutorom instead… I guess that means they’re not testing to see how gases spread through the city?

That’s just swell.

I’m trying to look on the bright side: maybe they’re lying.
