Smelly Socks Or Dead Body? Eh, Same Thing...

Apparently, old socks CAN smell like dead bodies (for those of you who were wondering-and I'm sure we all were...).

Police in Germany responded to a call from some people living in Kaiserslautern, a city in Southwest Germany, and were er, surprised to say the least, at what they found.

The people they got the call from said that their neighbor had not been home (so it seemed) in awhile, mail was piling up, no noise was coming from the apartment, things like that. The thing that WAS coming out of the apartment was a horrible smell. So potent, it was wafting under the door, across the shared staircase, and into the other people's apartment home.

When police got there, they very much expected to find a dead body. Wrong. They found a very alive body sleeping next to a very foul smelling pile of socks.
