A flight to Jakarta was recently delayed after passengers complained of a horrible smell. The plane’s cargo hold contained two tons of the world’s stinkiest fruit. Several passengers got into a heated argument with crew members before the airline agreed to remove the fruit. The plane took off an hour behind schedule.
Anthony Bourdain once described the offending “Durian” fruit as “something you will either love or despise. Your breath will smell as if you’d been French-kissing your dead grandmother.”
Food writer Richard Sterling described the smell as “turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock.”
