As you might imagine, literal tons of poop baking in the Alabama sun does not smell good, and people in Parrish have had more than enough. Now, they're threatening to sue the waste management company that was meant to receive it all, Big Sky Environmental, if it doesn't haul the shit away in the next two weeks.
"It's just pure feces. It catches you sometimes, just coming through the air. It takes your breath away," resident Sherleen Pike told the Associated Press.
"Oh my goodness, it's just a nightmare here," said Parrish Mayor Heather Hall, per a report in Bloomberg. "It smells like rotting corpses, or carcasses. It smells like death." It's gotten so bad that they've considered rescheduling kids softball games, or relocating them to places that don't reek of sewage. Some residents have even taken to dabbing peppermint oil under their noses to keep from smelling poop all the time. "We're moving into the summer, and the summer in the South is not forgiving when it comes to stuff like this," the mayor said.
