What stink?

I’m sure all of you have watched Lucky Star and wondered how everytime they start a scene with a conversation already going on, Kagami and friends would usually be talking about something that “stinks”. Every time one of the episodes have this sort of scene, I go back to bed and wonder “what in the world is that stink anyway?”, and find it hard to sleep.

What exactly is this “stinking thing anyway?” What could possibly be the “shit” that Kagami and friends so happened to be talking about everytime we start looking at them? It gets even more suspicious. Why do they stop immediately once the scene begins and changes the subject? Maybe it’s Kagamin’s cake.

    To me, it was one of those subtle running gags that remained great every time it was used. We can’t repeat it in real life since we just don’t walk in on conversations like that on a daily basis. I mean, how many times do you go into work and your two best friends are always talking to each other, ready for you to eavesdrop?

    It has definitely made me aware of the verb ‘to stink’ in Japanese, though, as I may occasionally hear it in other anime.

    I took it as a series of fart jokes and thought it was absolutely hilarious. i think just before they cut to the scene, one of them lets it rip and they find it hilarious how damn stinky their farts are

    I know what stinks… the fact that we don’t know what they’re talking about.
