Fifty bucks the religious right uses this as "evidence" of what will happen if gay marriage is legalized.

This is how it all went down...
10:30 Watching Flip This House on the TiVO -- it's kinda like Dukes of Hazzard meets Trading Spaces.
10:35 Lucy awakens from her couch nap, sniffs the air -- barks once.
10:36 We discuss how Lucy never barks ... Lucy plops to the floor, proceeds to bedroom ... barks once more.
10:36:20 We cover our faces as dog fart stench hits us ... but wait, no -- is that skunk?
10:37 The apartment is awash in skunk juice horror ... we panic, thinking maybe one of the little bastards (but I hear they make great pets) has wandered into the building.
10:38 But wait -- we're in Manhattan! Okay, Washington Heights -- but STILL Manhattan. I almost faint. I gasp and my man tells me to stop being so dramatic. Then he makes one of those false barf sounds.
10:40 We hear screams from upstairs. The stench is spreading. They may have been watching a scary movie, but I'm willing to bet it's skunk horror.
10:47 The waves of death recede as the wind picks up. Life returns to normal. The Flip This House people fail to flip this house.
3:37 AM I wake. No -- you're kidding me. AGAIN! I start stuffing towels around the air conditioner. Where's that duct tape I bought two years ago? We are under attack. This time it is worse. Is he UNDER the bed? Lucy barks once, and returns to sleep. The man doesn't even stir. I lay awake ... it's an hour before i fall back asleep.
Skunks. Who knew? Take THAT downtown, with your "oh no, I smell maple syrup!" Anyone else from the 190th/Ft. Wash area experience the attack? Let me know....
Also: Skunks As Pets
UPDATE: Wow. My shirt smells like skunk. It was on a hanger in my room last night -- and now smells like skunk. How embarrassing. Send TOMATO JUICE!
