I Love Asparagus But... (Read 217 times)

Better I Leave

    ...GAWDAMN!!! Why does my pee stink to high heaven after I eat it!!! LOL!

      Everyone's pee smells like that after eating asparagus but you and I are among the special 22% of people who have the receptors to detect this interesting aroma!  78% of people reading this post won't know what you are talking about.  What I find interesting is how soon after eating asparagus that you can smell it.

        Not necessarily everyone's does, but most do.




        Stinky but worth it. Big grin  I always eat green asparagus.  Does white do the same thing?

          The stinky pee is so disgustingly awesome.  Nothing like a bathroom punch in the face reminder at 3:00 AM that you had aparagus the night before.



            That happens to me with coffee...

              Yeah, I've got that receptor. It's an unbelievably nauseating smell.


              Asparagus. Not even once.

                I love asparagus, and I don't know what you're talking about.

                I think I'm genetically flawed, but in this case, it's likely not a curse.

                    Reminds me of the first time i had beets. I was pretty sure that I had been abducted by aliens (again). Nope, not that time, just beets.

                      This is one of those words that my ESL brain had to work hard on so that I say it properly.


                      My brain processes it as ass-pair-AGG-us.


                      And, yeah, my pee stinks.  But lots of stuff makes my pee stink.

                        But I will gladly take some stankpee for asparagus goodness.

                          I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day. (for now)

                            It's true. Very urine focused over here.

                              I wish I didn't have that reaction to the smell or make the smell in the first place, but I do.  I also live about 10 minutes South of the largest asparagus-producing region in the US (maybe the world...but for sure the US).  Such a shame, but I can't deal with the nausea from that stank!

                                I love the smell of asparagus pee in the morning!

                                Janie, today I quit my job. And then I told my boss to go f*** himself, and then I blackmailed him for almost sixty thousand dollars. Pass the asparagus.
