The smell turns out to be the smell of fireplace ashes, or as Buzz Aldrin put it, the smell of the air after a fireworks show.

A typical example of the humorous village story is that of a rather stupid young man who had to make a formal call with his uncle on a friend, following the decease of the latter's father. Not knowing how to act, he asked his uncle to instruct him and the latter said simply to do exactly as he did himself. Now when they arrived at the firend's house, the uncle, being an unusually tall man, bumped his head on the gate cover as tehy went in. The nephew following him, seeing this, but being short, stepped back, and taking a run jumped up and hit his head also. They went inside and after bowing to the ancestral tablet, the uncle bowed to the host. As he did so he accidentlly broke wind. When the nephew tried to imitate him, he could not. He kept on trying, however, with the result that he defecated instead. The uncle was so disgusted that he took him home.
