GERMANTOWN – Residents across Louisville have been complaining of a smell described as “a wet musty carpet” for the last few weeks. City officials are stumped and have been running air quality tests for the last few days with nothing turning up. This morning Tom Nord, spokesman for the cities air district, followed up on a lead pointing to a house on Mulberry street.
“My staff and I pulled up to the house and we all knew right away,” said Nord.
Before anyone from Nord’s team could knock on the door, the home owner, Janet Taylor swung the door open and confessed.
“Yeah it was me,” said Taylor. “I’ve been walking all over Louisville trying to lose this baby weight.”
Taylor said she’s a little offended by the way local media has been describing her smell on television and print all over the city.
“You try binge watching Steve Harvey and eating tub after tub of manager special hummus,” said Taylor. “I’m tryin’ to lose these last 100 pounds and the hummus makes me a little gassy.”
Mayor Fischer says he’s glad we can all put this mystery to bed, but called for any Louisville residents currently binge watching Steve Harvey or Steve Wilkos to please stay inside for now.
