The Aspagarus wee gene?
Not sure about the gene bit but I think we managed to do our oldest (just coming up to 3) psychological damage on earlier this week by giving him some to try, finding he liked it and then giving him a full helping. The house was woken in the middle of the night by a terrified little boy screaming that his wee smelt ‘terrible nasty’.Posted 8 years agostuckinarutMember
It’s not just your 3 year old. My (just turned) 30 year old friend was so relieved to find out she wasn’t the only one! The years of anguish! – at least you can broach this taboo with your son before it ruins his life 😀
Conversely, some people had no idea what we were talking about.Posted 8 years ago
yep it is now thought that only certain people can smell it but we all produce smelly wee!Posted 8 years agostuckinarutMember
IS there really such a thing?
Somehow at a BBQ last night, conversation turned to asparagus wee. And I convinced my hosts that there was a gene and only people with the gene could detect asparagus wee.
I’m sure I have heard that this is the case.
Was I talking tosh?
And if a non-geneholder eats spagarus and wees in a sparagus-gener’s shoes, does it smell?Posted 8 years agoernie_lynchMember
It doesn’t make my pee smell. And coincidently, I was on a road bike ride on monday when it was pointed out that apparently, I have a very acute sense of smell (I always comment on smell of all the different flowers and wood burning etc)
Mind you my sh1t don’t smell either, so I guess I’m just lucky.Posted 8 years ago
