Old Smelly No More
Old Smelly's name reportedly dates back hundreds of years to a legend about a dead horse, but sadly that's all the info the Internet will yield up about that. (Any Serbian history PhD candidates reading this blog? Opportunity for a thesis right here.)
But, in total disregard for their rotting-dead-horse heritage, villagers petitioned the government to change Old Smelly's name to "Izvor," meaning "Spring," so people wouldn't be ashamed to live there anymore.
What, couldn't they get any forward-thinking companies to sponsor them? "Cisco Systems, Serbia" has such a nice ring to it.
