See? Tourists Stink!

Not so long ago, I wrote a little ditty about how tourists stink. I also managed to offend a friend who happened to be visiting right before I wrote it, even though I really wasn't referring to her. Although she does smoke. But really, she's not smelly. Except when she's blowing smoke in my face. Which she really didn't do at all.

Boy, I'm a good friend.

Anyway, I'm not the only person who thinks that tourists stink. Upon the opening of the newly air-conditioned Capitol Visitor Center, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that in the old Visitor Center, you could "literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol." He's confident that it's a problem that will be solved now.

Don't be too sure, Senator. After all, I'm smelling tourists on the Brooklyn Bridge, which is outside, often with high winds, and it doesn't seem to make a difference. Tourists stink.

And lest you think I absolve myself from this problem, I am occasionally a tourist as well. I'm sure I stink. I'm on vacation, and I'm there to relax and see the sites. Sometimes a shower just isn't a priority.

So yes, Senator Reid, tourists stink. And I know that Washington is all about Hope and Change these days, but beware: tourists will stink with or without air-conditioning in the Capitol Visitor Center.
