Cologne de Stink
on November 29, 2012 at 12:00 am
No matter what your taste in cologne, not everyone is going to appreciate it. Especially those with big noses.
(This comic strip was previously published on September 14, 2009.)
Fellow cartoonist Tony McGurk from Tasmania celebrated Wombat Day with a special Tasmanians cartoon that featured a whole mob of wombats. Tony’s Wombat Day cartoon can be seen on his cartoon blog.
OMG, I can smell it from here, phew!!!!
Do Loons even have a nose? I guess they do.
What does it smell like to you, Chris?
I thought it smelled manly.
Some people think lumberjack after 16 hours is manly…
16 hours? That must be slow roasted.
Just kinda lumbering along…
To the tune of The Lumberjack song.
In a flannel shirt…in July.
I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK, I drink all night and work all day….
But how do you taste slow-roasted, Loon?
More Granly than Manly 🙁 Eeeeeew
I know what it smells like, has someone trod in something? 🙁 Yuck
Hey, it was a good cologne! Well, it was supposed to be!
I think the label reads Canal Number Five 🙁
That would explain the dead fish smell!
That is some potent stuff!
You’ve got that right!
How much did he put on?
Much more than enough!
He doesn’t know he is not supposed to bathe in it, eh?
I don’t know. Maybe I should tell him.
You could call the fire department. He may be combustible with that much on.
Does Chris have a date???? I bet he does. Come on Chris, who is she?????
It wasn’t as much a date as it was an escape from the looney bin around here! No offense.
I think it must be a smelly date 🙁
If you must know, she didn’t like it either!
Women are animals, too. We tend to pick out the smells. How else do we know how to change diapers, hmm?
So you’re comparing my cologne to a dirty diaper?!
Twink likened it to hazardous waste. The analog is apt. 😉
I guess I should just surrender.
Luckily Binky wasn’t conducting any rocket testing that day or Chris might have ignited!
Whew. That would have been dangerous. Perhaps, that stuff needs a flammable warning label beside the skull and crossbones.
And a hazardous waste symbol, too!
The whole smelly bottle I think? 🙁
It did smell like it!
You’re right Loon it honks 🙁
Loon is the honker if you ask me.
Loon has feelings you know? 🙁
So do I!
You have to admit it Chris, your cologne is skunk stinky, everyone knows that 🙁
Well I didn’t think so!
There is a certain air about him today.
An air of gas 🙁 Sorry Chris…
I’ll never wear cologne ever again!
I think it will be okay in a confined area 🙂
As long as we’re not there.
Like a gas chamber?
Trying to knock me off?
I was guessing a Loon fart.
She was just here.
silent ones are the best. Everyone denies 😉
Silent farts are the only ones you can deny doing. Unless of course you are the only other person in the room, then it’s just plain awkward 🙁
Can’t you just make out you don’t exist? I do it all the time.
You still cast a shadow…even a green one.
I need to hang out with people with less sensitive noses.
It is certainly a gut wrenching one that’s for sure 🙁
A bit like someone has been cooking one of your zombie recipes. o.O
Or cooking one of the Zombies.
That is what the recipes have as ingredients.
Oh my. I didn’t realize they cooked themselves.
Yes the Jamie Oliver one 🙁
Oh gad. Add the smell of hair gel. Eww.
I think hair gel smells better than rotting Zombie parts!
Not by much…
I guess it depends on which rotting body part we’re talking about!
I try not to smell the inner ones.
I try not to smell any of their parts if I can help it!
Especially those around the back 🙁
Or the foot…some of them only have one.
They do have a tendency to lose their body parts.
Hahaha… I’m sure it’s just… um… well…
an acquired taste!
Maybe I shouldn’t buy my cologne in the dollar store.
Or from a catalog.
Or from a garbage dump.
Whoa!!…He does smell bad it that would be better!
No, I meant I think that’s where he got his current cologne from. Eau de garbage dump!
He needs to find another place to shop.
He should have known when Cedric came calling door-to-door with something called “eau de dechets” he was in trouble. o.O
But it sounded good! Everything sounds good in French.
Is it a cologne from Tramps Anonymous? 🙁
No. Is that supposed to be good cologne?
Chris just dont go out till you are able to wash it off completely and sue the store which sold you that cologne
I think I’ll sue them for selling me cologne that’s inappropriate for Wombies.
That will be the first suit of its kind. 🙂
Perhaps we can set a precedent and get a windfall.
What do the French know? They use cologne to cover body odor. It does not have to smell “good”, just “different”.
The French know how to cook and eat!
The French also make perfumes the celebrities like. After snorting so much other stuff, how do they know what smells good?
Well apparently I don’t know what smells good, so I’m probably not the best judge.
Thos Frogs often smell funny so I guess that is another explanation 🙁
So does escargot. o.O
I thought…well, that the trash needed taken out.
Maybe I should put Chris out by the curb for a few hours.
It would help air him out.
And maybe teach him a lesson in cologne etiquette, too.
Maybe a few…just to be sure.
Yes, and if it doesn’t work, I’ll just have to hide all his cologne.
If it works, he might throw out his cologne.
That’s probably too much to hope for.
Your right…Maybe you could run him a bath.
I made him a bubble bath but he didn’t go for it.
Hopefully with lye soap.
I wasn’t really planning on dissolving him.
Turn on the garden hose when he goes outside…you know what to do with it.
@ Red. Your comment and Twinks reply…priceless. 😆
We’re just getting our first dusting of snow, so the hose might be a bit extreme!
But Twink, that would freeze him. By the time the cologne melted the ice, it would have lost its… ah, aroma.
@Deb *grins* We make a good team 😉
It would probably get rid of the
stenchodor, but I think freezing the poor guy might be going a bit too far. He’s not bad, he just has a bad sense of smell.
Well Twink, you could each wear a close pin on your nose.
I guess it would have to be a big clothespin.
Like this one?…
Well not quite that big!
As U know cologne smells different depending who wears it. Wonder what it would smell like on a wombie?
I don’t know. I think I’d just rather smell like a Wombie.
You mean like chocolate?
Yep! I do work in a chocolate factory!
maybe if Chris had chocolate cologne then he would be more popular? 🙂 Then again it might smell iffy on a human? 🙁
I think it would be very attractive!
Depends on where he applied it. *whistles innocently*
He might apply it to his…
Never mind you can wear
a blindfold 🙂
You two are going to have to stand in the corner! But not together!
I want the red corner. *grins*
Well I don’t know about that!
I am sure Andro would take the blue corner…
I’m going to have to find a couple of musty cellar corners with no color and no extra curricular activities!
Not a boxing fan, eh, Twink?
Not really, no. Maybe I should get Winky in here.
This is a very good idea Twink, I like the idea of standing in the corner with Red 😉
I figured you would, and that’s why I said separate corners!
We could share a neutral corner. *grins*
The point was punishment, not fun!
We can be punished together.
Not if I’m doing the punishing!
What are you feeding Chris anyway?
Nothing that would account for the stench!
I would be checking for where he is stashing the stinko stuff.
It shouldn’t be too hard to find!
I think he eats a varied combination of sprouts, dog biscuits and red onions 🙁
If he does, he must be sneaking them between meals!
You will find the wrappers.
I’ll get Fraz to secret-agent spy on him.
Oh, that is right up his alley. Or is that SS’s job?
I never call on SS unless I’m desperate. It rarely turns out good when he’s involved.
Yes and if he gets a sniff of Chris it could be a dangerous mission too 🙁
Probably for both of them.
They are putting it right out there too. No mincing words about that awful cologne. I’ve smelled some that was pretty bad too and it makes you wonder why the wearer of same doesn’t realize how bad they smell.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
I don’t know. Some people just don’t have a very good sense of smell. Or taste.
I find those Lynx users smell of cow dung too, not that I get too close, it must be a dangerous exercise for you ladies with a guy that uses Stinks, I mean Lynx 🙁 Eeeew
I don’t know about that, but I do try to stay away from those rotting Zombies.
That is definitely a wise move Twink 🙂
I learned it the hard way.
Tony’s height difference for Lenny and the wombats is cool.
I just hope Lenny doesn’t feel like snacking.
That would be awkward. Probably why Tony chose Lenny and not Neville.
Yes, Neville is probably worse. Take a nap and you might end up as a meal.
No worries – cologne beats EXCRETIONS any day! W.C.C.
That’s what I say, but the little ones seem to disagree.
Some colognes just need time to adjust one’s senses to. It’s like loud music. After a while it doesn’t sound as loud.
P.S. Thanks heaps for the free shout out Peter & guys!!!
You’re welcome, Tony. But it wasn’t really free as you drew the comic to earn it.
Great work Tony 🙂
That’s because you’ve gone deaf Tony….lol. I thought Pepe le Pew was in town! 😛
Don’t listen to them, I smelled nice!
Tell that to all the people wearing clothes pins on their noses….:-P
More people with no sense of smell!
Or very developed sense of smell.
I prefer to think of them as not being very discriminating.
For most of the species, smell is not in the eye of the beholder. IJS
Yes, humans tend not to be very well connected to their noses.
Chris Le Pew
I thought it was a very nice scent!
That’s right, Tony! The guys around here have extra sensitive noses.
Loved your work Tony 🙂
I’m glad you said Tony and not Chris Soma, but then if you had said Chris you might have said “Loved your scent Chris” or is that too much to even think of knowing that his choice of cologne is likened to camels breath? 🙁
Camel’s breath would be an improvement!
That cologne must smell a
lot worse than I thought 🙁
You’re lucky you weren’t exposed to it!
Hey I can smell something incredibly awesome, but I can’t see no dumpster around here
Move along, Cedric, move along. There’s nothing to eat here.
What a cheesy comment Cedric 🙂
He’s always looking for a cheesy handout.
He will eat his way through the whole dumpster knowing him 🙁
I wouldn’t doubt it.
See, and I thought you sold it to him!
Cedric rarely ever has any money.
Which is why I thought he sold you that… well, bottle.
I thought you meant. . . never mind.
I refuse to divulge the source of my cologne in case I need to get some more.
After all these insults, I mean comments on your choice of colognes I think perhaps next time you will pick something different 🙂
I don’t think there will be a next time unless I want to annoy a certain group of Wombies.
The do not wear it. Wash their sheets in it. *wicked grin*
That would get their attention! But they’d probably all end up in my bed.
Bedroom door locks are cheap.
They are, but a determined Wombie will go right through a door, locked or not. Perhaps I should instal a vault door.
Have to ask Andro where he gets those.
Andro’s dungeon doors? They should be Wombie proof.
Unfortunately the vault doors are not even Zombie proof so I doubt if any would be able to stop a Wombie 🙁
Nothing can stop me when I’m hungry enough!
I think we need to find a new supplier… Or are Wombie teeth like rat teeth and can chew through lead?
We can chew through a lot, but we also plow through things. Wild wombats are called the bulldozers of the bush.
Well done on the Cartoon Tony it’s brilliant 🙂
I hope that horrible smell improves around here by the time I get back or I am bringing everyone a gasmask 🙂
Andro you better bring the gas mask and one for me too.. lol
That is a complete exaggeration!
I have them ready Soma, and yours is a pink one 🙂
I probably won’t be using that cologne anymore as it seems to have gone missing.
You have a very charitable thief.
That seems to be the consensus.
Obviously he hasn’t had a sniff of that cologne yet, don’t worry Chris it will be returned by the scent thief, and pronto 🙂
I think Twink was the culprit and I’m sure she’s destroyed the evidence by now.
OMG 😯 that was Chris’s cologne?
use some cologne de chocolate
Cologne de Chocolate would be perfect! Chris obviously doesn’t know where to shop.
He needs to take a tour around Winky’s Chocolate Factory for some ideas 🙂
That would be a good place to start!
Eau De Fisherman’s Wharf!
That would be an improvement!
Tony’s comic RAWKS! Any scent can be tricky to bathe yourself self in.
I wish he’d bathe himself in a unscented scent.
Chris certainly hooked a
smelly one with that choice 🙁
I need an fifty gallon barrel of Febreeze!
Are you sure that will be big enough? Remember it has a very long lasting stink value 🙁
It might not be enough, but it’d at least be a start.
May need a tanker truck… or maybe a tanker train car…
We just might!
I have a st-stuttering p-p-problem. S-self Self.
You’ve probably been hanging around Wombies too long. They’ll do that to you.
Poor Chris. It wasn’t nice 😉
I must be the only one on the planet who liked it!
You and the seller 🙂
Or maybe that’s why they sold it!
I was thinking all of the same things but the smell was coming from my fridge. I’d rather it had been cologne.
I was not hiding in your fridge, BTW.
Boy, it must really be bad considering the things it was compared to!!
Everyone certainly seems to think so!
What do you think Chris?
I thought it smelled both good and manly!
everybody’s a cridic. lol
They sure are around here!
Hahaha…be patience Chris!!
But I wonder, what cologne do you use?
I don’t think I should say what cologne it was for fear of reprisal!
Is Reprisal the name of the hitman when a stinky honking rotten cologne is being used? 🙂
Now there’s a hitman involved? I never realized cologne could be so dangerous!
It depends on where and of course how you use it 🙁
I think I’ll just stay away from all cologne from now on.
Muahahaha so Wombats don’t like the smell of cologne, we get it!
Have a great weekend, Peter!
Wombies have highly sensitive noses and a discriminating sense of smell.
I hope you have a good weekend, too, Cha.
Ha Ha at least Chris got the hint pretty quick 🙂
They’re always hinting at something!
I think it’s the socks.
I hope not!
Yes that could be the
problem, rotting sock fabrics 🙁
I hope Chris hasn’t turned into a Zombie and is rotting away!
I will try the Zombie test on him later 🙂
I am not a Zombie!
How do you know? The consensus is you smell like one.
Zombies are mindless idiots, and I’m not that! At least not yet!
Give the Wombies a chance.
They are doing a pretty good job of turning me into one.
I forgot to mention how much I like, Tony’s Wombat day, drawing…all those little Wombies are pretty cute.
We’re naturally adorable!
That’s for sure…I have two that prove that to me every day.
Yes. I know. Dink is cute!
Hi Twink…I think you pretty cute too!
This is for you….
Oh, Dink, you shouldn’t have! But I love it!
Must be pretty bad.
Maybe someone has already used the paper..
Well I certainly hope not!
Of course, they could just say that, but it’s more fun this way. 🙂
You think they were just teasing?
Binky, as powerful as this stuff is, have you considered it as an alternative fuel source?
Actually I haven’t, but I think you may be on to something. I’ll have to procure some for testing.
Twink will know. She nabbed this bottle.
I hope she hid it and didn’t destroyed it.
And you’re not even in Denmark!
No, but I wish Chris was so we wouldn’t have to smell him.
…cologne is fine… sometimes guys just wear too much!
Some cologne is acceptable, but not the kind Chris was wearing. I don’t know where he found it.
Must be Channel – that bit of the English Channel where we pump out the raw sewage. Watch out for Seagulls 😉
I wouldn’t be surprised if it was. I think I did see some seagulls circling him.
