What’s That Smell?

Today’s Daily Post Prompt was to do a Google Image search on something random, then pick the 11th picture and write a post about it.

Well, while viewing Sons Of Anarchy tonight, my husband said I should Google “I smell like a skank”.  After roaring with laughter, I told him about the challenge. I didn’t feel much like writing today, as I have been preparing other posts for next week and wasn’t going to do anything. I won’t have much time next week, but want to keep up with my new and awesome weekly features.

But this opportunity was just too good to pass up.  While searching, it came to my mind “What exactly is a skank?”

According to urbandictionary.com, this is a skank:
“Derogatory term for a (usually younger) female, implying trashiness or tackiness, lower-class status, poor hygiene, flakiness, and a scrawny, pockmarked sort of ugliness. May also imply promiscuity, but not necessarily. Can apply to any race, but most commonly used to describe white trash.
You know that girl Crystal that lives in the trailer park? She’s a total skank.”

Thanks, now I know.

My image search, pulled up this photo.  That I believe may or may not be Lady Gaga.


Not an especially skanky picture. But, it led to a webpage for radio station 89.3 KPCC, Southern California Public Radio

The article was titled:

You Too Can Smell Like A Skank.

So what does a skank smell like?  I was thrilled that my silly search might actually produce an answer.  According to the article, which I apologize is over a year old, Lady Gaga will be launching a new perfume.  She wanted it to smell like semen and blood.

Everybody else feeling a big EWWWWWWWW here? I must be really out of the loop, since this was news to me.  And not welcome news.

Um, yeah.  Maybe the next time I get the urge to follow the lead of the daily word prompt, I should ignore it.

My sincere apologies
