What is the smell of America?
Is it fresh-cut grass? Morning dew? Car exhaust? Fresh human urine on the sidewalk outside Starbucks* ? (maybe that was just the first strong smell I experienced this morning)
Well, here is the answer according to the Harper’s Index:
Percentage of Americans who describe “barbecue ” as the aroma that best defines America: 39
What say you? Is BBQ really the smell that best defines America?
*Presumably this aroma was complements of late-night partier or one of the local park’s many homeless residents
