A friend was motoring down a rural byway one night, when she felt a small bump, but guessing that she had hit only forest debris, she continued driving. Within minutes, she began to gag, as her car filled with the unmistakable, take-your-breath away, 100-times-worse-than-rotten-eggs, scent of a skunk. However, the further she drove, the stronger the smell became. Desperate to end the foul mystery, she pulled into an all-night gas station where the attendant found a skunk carcass had flipped onto the lip of her front bumper where it remained.
