Sweet Smell of Terror Returns

New, 13 comments

Just when you thought it was safe to leave your bubble, Gothamist reports that the Maple Syrup Smell (MSS) is back and raging in '09. Initial intel pegged the MSS to the Upper West Side but reader updates (pinpointed on Gothamist's map) have indicated MSS as far away as Queens and the Red Hook Ikea. One MSS victim tells the 'ist: "We thought at first it was her neighbors doing something kinky, or that it was a new form of bioterrorism!" The sticky scent has been plaguing city streets since 2005, so it's probably not bioterrorism, unless...we're all dead? Oh no, are we a Lost theory? [Gothamist]
