In your opinion, which state totally STINKS?  And we mean that literally . . . which one SMELLS the worst?  Someone ranked all 50 states by looking at four different categories of stink . . .

They factored in how dirty the air is . . . how many landfills there are . . . dental health, as a measure of bad breath . . . and population density to estimate how much B.O. you have to deal with.  Here are the ten smelliest states in America . . .

1.  Maryland.

 

2.  California.

 

3.  Florida.

 

4.  Delaware.

 

5.  Massachusetts.

 

6.  Alabama.

 

7.  New Jersey.

 

8.  New York.

 

9.  Pennsylvania.

 

10.  Mississippi.

 

 

North and South Dakota tied for the most pleasant-smelling states, followed by Wyoming, Idaho, and Wisconsin.
