Muni is many things to many people. In addition to being a place where couples meet, where stories are shared with strangers, and where we get to see exotic animals without having to bother with the zoo, Muni is, as we’re all too well aware, a moving cauldron of odors. Sometimes good, usually bad. Of course, Muni also happens to be filled with plenty of wonderfully creative people. And they have Twitter accounts.

Here are some of the better Muni smell descriptions we’ve seen in the last month or so:

@holyempressqb: “shoutout 2 whoever that is that smells like febreeze on muni right now” on June 15.

@kkblabs: “This woman on the1 rly needs 2close her pits!! Smells like my hot yoga studio but filled w hippies+Mexi food+used diapers! :-x” on June 16.

@cwbayarea: “Public transportation is not going my way today. This muni smells like rotten hot dogs…” on June 24.

So, now that we’ve brought it up, (I’m totally gonna regret asking, but …) what does Muni smell like to you right now?
