Sniff Sniff BOOM

Seafood safety testing in the Gulf region has taken a turn for the stinky. Ordinary citizens had presumed that scientists were behind the inspections of oysters, shrimp, and other fishes originating in the oil-tainted waters, but it turns out that anybody with a nose can qualify for the job. Managers of the testing facilities urge the olfactory workers to sniff "like a bunny," according to an NPR report that aired this morning on WWNO. Driving this technology is the belief that people can tell when something's gone bad in their refrigerators. So by extension, they should be able to tell when something's spilled 55,000 gallons of oil on a single catfish.
