I mean if it was a rotten one then that description isn't too far off.

In middle school some kids thought it'd be hilarious to throw a dozen rotten eggs into the air return of the school. Clear the fucking building OUT in under 10 minutes. Also got the bomb squad and several other authorities involved due to them thinking it was a chemical attack.

The smell is... Well, once you smell it, you KNOW that smell. It's engrained into the surface of your brain forever, like skunk musk or a dog with parvovirus.

It's a bit funny that none of the adults in school didn't immediately know what that smell was.

Most of the students and some teachers said exactly what it was. I mean like you said you just know.

Where administrators were coming from was in the off chance someone used the eggs to hide the smell of something else. Basically an abundance of caution. We used to do that in the early 90s

Wait, you can smell Parvo?

When the dogs start to have diarrhea, it has a very distinct smell. It is not just a "sick poop" smell, nor is it just a blood smell. It's almost...chemical.

I remember as a kid trying to make rotten eggs to use for mischief, and we just couldn't get them to rot, even waiting for weeks with them. So frustrating, ha.
