The King of Fruit

Just came across this video on how smelly a durian is.

I know it's smelly, but no way can it beat stale vomit, rotten eggs and a sweaty shoe combined!

Here's a couple of durian-related quotes!
  • Anthony Bourdain, while a lover of durian, relates his encounter with the fruit as thus: "Its taste can only be described as...indescribable, something you will either love or despise. ...Your breath will smell as if you'd been French-kissing your dead grandmother."

  • Its odour is best described as pig-shit, turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock.
I don't know what they're talking about - I love it!
