    White people smell like ignorance, cultural exploitation, oppression, and ketchup.

    Awesome.

    Funnily enough, white people smell like racism.

    Anyone in the LA area that listens to Kevin and Bean knows that white people smell like mayonnaise.
    This is from the unofficial Kevin and Bean blog:

    From the 8/24/2006 show:
    For anyone not familiar with the show here is a quick summary of what the Wheel o’ Racial Stereotypes

    white people smeel [sic] like mayonaise [sic].
    Well I guess much like "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", so does "smell is in the nose of the smeller" ring true... first time I've heard of white people smelling like mayonnaise... but that's from the Black perspective evidently. From the Asian perspective, white people smell like cheese and meat.

    There is a biological basis for different kinds of b.o. among races. I heard that white and black people have larger sweat glands than Asians, and whites and blacks have a different conistency of ear wax than Asians, and there other things. Sorry my post does not include anything about Latinos, American Indians, Middle Easterners, Australian Aborigines, Eskimos, or Natives of the Americas.

    Someone needs to start a thread on commentary between ear wax differences between the races.

    So does anyone think a Japanese school girl in Tokyo smells like an old Betawi man in Jakarta? The question, at the very least, is overly simplistic.

    I wonder if anybody knows if there's a biological basis to the axiom that darker-colored people have more pungent body odor than lighter-colored people. Speaking from personal experience, this has been true for me when it comes to Asians. The two strongest-smelling girls I ever smelled were from Vietnam and India. They were extremely pungent in odor (but not necessarily bad -- just "musky"). However I've known Korean and Japanese girls who have little to no discernible body odor -- even after repeated bouts of strenuous physical exertion.

    I think "excercise" was better than activity or exertion.

    "Good evening ma'am, we are scientists studying body odor, would you be willing to 'excercise' with us, perhaps even repeatedly? Not for a million dollars? Well, how about two?"

    What kind of physical exertion and what part of their bodies smell pungent? I might agree with this...
