Dead Skunk In the Middle of the Road
( Loudon Wainwright III )

Crossin' the highway late last night
He shoulda looked left and he shoulda looked right
He didn't see the station wagon car
The skunk got squashed and there you are!

You got yer
Dead skunk in the middle of the road
Dead skunk in the middle of the road
You got yer dead skunk in the middle of the road
Stinkin' to high Heaven!

Take a whiff on me, that ain't no rose!
Roll up yer window and hold yer nose
You don't have to look and you don't have to see
'Cause you can feel it in your olfactory

You got yer
Dead skunk in the middle of the road
Dead skunk in the middle of the road
You got yer dead skunk in the middle of the road
Stinkin' to high Heaven!

Yeah you got yer dead cat and you got yer dead dog
On a moonlight night you got yer dead toad frog
Got yer dead rabbit and yer dead raccoon
The blood and the guts they're gonna make you swoon!
You got yer
Dead skunk in the middle of the road
Dead skunk in the middle of the road
You got yer dead skunk in the middle of the road
Stinkin' to high Heaven!

C'mon stink!

You got it!
It's dead, it's in the middle
Dead skunk in the middle!
Dead skunk in the middle of the road
Stinkin' to high heaven!
All over the road, technicolor man!
Oh, you got pollution
It's dead, it's in the middle
And it's stinkin' to high, high Heaven!

Here's a story by the guy who posted these lyrics:

So why am I posting the lyrics to this old song? Well, our house was assaulted in the wee hours this morning by a sum'bitch skunk who decided to spray pretty much all around the outside of the house. We sleep with the bedroom window cracked slightly, for fresh air, and the stink was overpowering, awakening us both. It was roughly 5 AM when it happened, and there wasn't much we could do that helped with the odor; some spray finally helped a touch, and eventually we were able to get back to sleep, but we both feel a bit out of sorts because of it. Windows are open around the house now, as we try to air it out.

Blech!

Now me we've had skunks living under our house for several months. So far no major stinks just an occassional whiff thru the vent in the bathroom they're under. Tried all kinds of stuff to get rid of em. I called & no one wanted to come help get them out. I asked one fella what to do with them and he said leave em alone till they leave. Big help. But good advice.

I have it on good authority that tomato juice shifts the smell of skunk.

When I was at my brothers once a neighbour of his had an Old English Sheepdog that had gotten into a fight with a skunk. The dog was sheared - bald ! then washed with tomato juice.

You need a hell of a lot of juice to do a house though.

Couple days ago channel surfing with my wife we saw part of a special about skunks & how many were dying by getting their heads stuck in yogurt containers which they couldn't pull off. Showed a guy grabbing the skunk, wrapping its tail under with a towel, & cutting the cup off it's head then
letting it go. Now yogurt companies are going to make containers skunks can easily get their heads in & out of. Great I got skunks under my house now I may have more in my trash too once those polecats figure out I have safe yogurt cups!

Meanwhile skunks evidently love yogurt. So how can I use yogurt cups to get the damned stinkers out from under my house? Without getting self or house sprayed?

For cryin out loud they can change cups to save skunks easier than they can change laws to save people from abuse & survivors from further grief!

That stinks!

Can you get a 12 gauge - pump action yoghurt pot ?

Brother at this point I'll try about anything.

Do you happen to have a spare one for sale?
