From the book, “Why Do Men Have Nipples?”

WHY DOES YOUR PEE SMELL WHEN YOU EAT ASPARAGUS?
Asparagus contains a sulfur compound called mercaptan. It is also found in onions, garlic, rotten eggs, and in the secretions of skunks. The signature smell occurs when this substance is broken down in your digestive system. Not all people have the gene for the enzyme that breaks down mercaptan, so some of you can eat all the asparagus you want without stinking up the place.

    duh! and my pee doesn’t smell after eating asparagus and it is one of my favorite veggies, right under brocolli and spinach. however, upon further reflection, i don’t think i have ever actually tried to smell my pee after having eaten asparagus. i can verify tonight if my genes are unnatural, if necessary.
