Your character is a truck driver named Buck. He comes out, sits down, and starts talking about how he drives the biiiig riiig all over (the towns around your area). But as he drives he gets Òpowerful smellyÓ. Not just your average smelly either. And here Buck falls into a rambling discourse of how smelly he is. “IÕm talkinÕ real smelly-just-got-my-nose-caught-under-the-belly-of-a-dead-fish-smelly-stuck-my-head-in-a-hamper-smelly-dog-died-got-stuffed-in-a-closet-smelly-had-a-dirty-diaper-fall-on-my-face-Whoo! And so I tried me a roll on.” Buck applies the roll on liberally. “I figure nothinÕ could beat the olÕ rooolllll on. so IÕs drivinÕ down the road again going ÔMan do I smell mighty fine!Õ, until I pull up into a truck stop and the lady behind the counter says, Ôwooooeeeee do you smell bad!Õ and I did. I stinks! And IÕm not talkinÕ a little bad. IÕm talkinÕ dead fish washed up on shore smelly olÕ dress sock been sittinÕ in my closet skunk plastered to my radiater gril stuck my gym shorts in an ol locker SMELLY! So I decided to use some of that there pump (apply pump liberally to both sides.), and then I say IÕm smellinÕ mighty fine. but you know somethinÕ I barely drove five miles and I donÕt smell fine at all. I smell really bad. I smellÉ(you figure it out). Any way, Buck then applies the stick and reenacts the smelly stuff, finds out he still doesnÕt smell good and goes through the same with the aerosol. Buck finally says, “But I finally found something that does work. Peanut Butter!” Buck now applies the PB to the armpits. “Yep! A little bit of peanut butter and I smell mighty fine while IÕm driving the big rig! But yÕknow, when IÕm driving the big rig, sometimes I get powerful hungry! ThatÕs why I carry me a little bread with me (pulls a couple of slices) and so from time to time I make myself a little sandwich!” Buck swabs the bread in the armpits and takes a big bite. “And now I donÕt get hungry while driving the big rig!”
