Snackeroos! ... or not.

Big Al took home these Snackeroos yesterday! They look like little puffs of pure innocence, but LOOKS DECEIVE, I TELL YOU! Looks deceive! Take it from the green guy. I threw the box open and took a BIG whiff of everything! Because Yolly said they were "puffs" and "puffs" are normally very harmless and very pleasant little things (as I am).

And boy! Did those things stink up the room real quick! If you haven't already guessed, they're durian puffs.

durian |ˈdoŏrēən; -rēˌän|
1 an oval spiny tropical fruit containing a creamy pulp. Despite its fetid smell, it is highly esteemed for its flavor.

Really, now! I've caught wind of the pungence of this "oval spiny tropical fruit" once before, at a night market (a.k.a. pasar malam), but wow, these puffs take the stench to a whole new level of Strange!

Do you suppose the chefs wear noseclips?
