Le Pew in shoe, aka sneaker

by on February 13, 2012

What more can be said – Actions speak louder than words. Actor portraying a cartoon character Pepe Le Pew, an adorable skunk (opportunistic eater), lover and quintessential flirt.

And what’s that stink, odor, smell, pheromone you say? Well in the real world of skunks I think it is to ward off unwanted advances of the dangerous kind, i.e., a defense mechanism.

If you have ever watched the Pepe Le Pew cartoons, he is seemingly unaware of his malodorous scent being more interested in his unabashed and conceited pursuit of anything in a tail that has a white strip running the length of its back to the tip of its bushy tail.

Now if anyone has been sprayed by a skunk

stinky black and white skunk

If you can see the white stripe on my back you are too close!

It is widely thought that a bath in tomato juice neutralizes the stench. However according to this site, that is a myth –

Olfactory fatigue occurs when a person or animal inhales a very strong odor over a prolonged period of time; after long enough, they will no longer be able to distinguish the powerful odor, as they have grown accustomed to it.

  1. I always thought Pepe was kind creepy-stalkerish. He just wouldn’t leave that poor cat alone!
