Fecund Mind

"During asparagus season, members are requested not to relieve themselves in the hatstand."

Sniffing for a solution to another of life's great mysteries, I went straight to the source (previously effective in illuminating pompatus).

From big steps + l...

Found that the smell in urine produced by ingesting asparagus is attributed to thioacrylate and thiopropionate, stinky compounds known as thioesters – according to the 1975 findings of UCSD chemist Robert White. The metabolic processes by which the chemicals are formed in urine were not determined by that study.

Mystery prevails.

"Love. A urine mirage in a desert of fear."

P.S. – just because fecund sounds like it has something to do with bodily functions doesn't make it so.
