"Freshly showered woman" is just so vague. It really depends a lot on the woman.

Turkey, on the other hand.....now that's a smell you can take to the bank.

Oops, I voted for 5. Turkey in the oven was my 5th choice and if I weren't an idiot it wouldn't have gotten my extra vote. Turkey and ballot stuffing.

What happened to the camping smell of pine trees, camp fire smoke and a freshly blood soaked piece of cloth hanging from the person who passed out first tent to attract bears?

I demand a recount.

I agree, but it's too late for pot roast. Help me save cinnamon rolls.

And here I looked at pot roast and though "How the hell did steamed scrap meat with a bunch of garbage vegetables make it this far?"

Post roast sucks ass. Might as well make Corned Beef a choice.

This was the easiest heat ever.

Smoker Meat
Cinnamon Rolls
Fresh Bread

Tell ya what, Rainman. "Freshly showered woman" is really just shampoo and soap. That violates the 'amateur' rule as it's all man-made. As such, disqualify FSW and it frees up a spot.

The judges would rule that "freshly showered woman" is indeed an amateur scent, because it is not a single commercial scent but rather an unintended and non-manufactured combination of scents, as confirmed by your "shampoo AND soap" diagnosis.

But honestly I'm not sure how it made it this far. In my opinion, freshly showered woman is a pretty mediocre smell compared to the four you mentioned. But I guess that's why we play the games.

'Hamburger and Onions' votes should be given to 'Pot Roast'. After all, both are beef and onions. Pot Roast is clearly the superior version of the two, what with not being pre-chewed, more consistently higher grade of meat, additional roasted carrots, etc.

'H&O' is a flim flam of the magnificence of 'PR'!!


I hope there aren't any laws against campaigning in close proximity to a polling place.

ok, so pot roast is done, and ive done my part for cinnamon rolls.

How is thanksgiving turkey not blowing out most of the field? Have some of you lost your noses?

This poll is about smells......aroma, fragrance, odor, scent.

Look down if you will upon the appearance, texture or flavor of a pot roast, and granted its quiet simmer doesn't have the auditory flair of its distant cousin, the grilled steak. But when it comes to aroma, the pot roast plays second fiddle to no other cut of braised beef.

I'm sorry if I come across strong, but pot roast means a lot to me.

Still just smells like stew or maybe steak soup.

If it can't even win its own division (cooked beef - steaks on a grill own all), what's it doing getting this far in the tourney?

Sorry Pot Roast, but your nebulous odor combo of beef broth and steamed carrots just doesn't do it for me.

I'm really surprised pot roast is in last place. Cold winter Sunday afternoon, come on, the smell just gives you that warm I'm going to pig out feeling.

I have a feeling that late voters are strategically ignoring the humble pot roast, knowing from posts in this thread that it has no chance to advance.

It certainly illustrates the importance of getting early momentum via pre-poll p.r. efforts. The same thing happened to Rudy Giuliani in 2008.

To those who have not yet voted: if you think a Thanksgiving Turkey does not smell better (not feels, smells) than a freshly showered woman, you are provably wrong.

I've been married to one for almost 30 years...I can smell that every day.

Thanksgiving comes once a year.
