Hold the Mayo

Something I've always wondered about: You folks who do the "Five Weirdest" or whatever number of whatever, how do you know they're the weirdest? What if there's one even weirder that you missed? Do you revise the list? Create a new click-bait list of the Six Weirdest?

Okay, I really wasn't wondering that much.

The mayo stories were... um... let me just say, hold the mayo!

The rancid tub reminded me of this recent Arlo & Janis cartoon re the smells of summer.
I just want to know, the folks in the house where the rancid tub was, were they still alive? conscious? devoid of olfactory senses?
