watching baffled officials

You may have heard that New York City is having some kind of weird air quality problem - basically the whole city smells (unusually) bad. I was checking CNN to see if they had a more recent update, and noted that their story had linked to a video update of the story with the phrase Watch how officials are baffled by the odor, which struck me as having the potential to be one of the funniest videos all year.

Thanks for one of the best laughs I've had for a Monday in a while. Bloomberg, in addition to delivering one of the funniest conferences, has such an ackward tick going on when he speaks. Baffled is really the best way to describe him in general.

I'm glad you enjoyed! I'm amazed they still haven't figured out what it was. I did like the jokes people were making (as reported in the Guardian) - "'You know what you call New York with a bad smell? New Jersey,' Jay Leno wisecracked. And Conan O'Brien killed with this: 'Apparently, New Yorkers knew something was wrong because it smelled bad when they got OUT of their taxis.'"
