If you ever catch a whiff of a 'fresh' Durian, you will fully understand the panic of the situation. The average Durian is about the size of a large cantaloupe maybe slightly larger. They cost almost a hundred bucks each. My wife 'loves' Durian. I want to remind The Blog should The Blog ever have dinner in our home and the wife has one of these 'stink bombs' in the house, she is required by law to open it outside of the living structure. Then wrap it securely in several layers of gallon sized plastic bags tightly tied, and never ever allowed to bring it into the house.

Durian fact: Some people, my wife, love this awful fart-smelling fruit so much, they eat it until they are sick with indigestion and unable to function as a human being. I try and warn her when she is tempted to buy one when it is available for around $50 each. Oh, if you see one in the market, DO NOT touch it. A Durian is covered in knife-like spines resembling a charging porqupine. I can't spell porquepine. They look a lot like a Durian and are a squirrel in disguise.

Those spines will draw blood, I am not jerking. I can't spell joking.

I posted a rambling message about my experience with Durian. Apparently my message was never posted, so let me say, "Durian, DO NOT mess with them".

Wasn't Rouge 767 that terrorist org that Jack was always fighting?

I never listened to them, but Durian Durian was very popular in the 1980's, though.

The chef, Anthony Bourdain, once said this about durian.

"Your breath will smell like you have been French-kissing your dead grandmother."
