A Chicago high school had to be shut down because of a strange odor that made 47 kids sick. Many had nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or shortness of breath but luckily no one was seriously injured. The cause of the smell was unknown but an 11th grader with a t-shirt that said "Who Farted?" was arrested (not for causing the problem but for having bad taste). Okay, I made that up. Couldn't resist. At this point in my career I don't think any smell would bother me. I could incise and drain a rectal abscess while eating a sandwich.
