Man paves road with unwashed clam shells, neighbors are sickened by stench

A fellow in Tiverton, Rhode Island paved his access road with tons of unwashed clam shells, which still had chunks of meat attached to them. His neighbors saw him doing it, and warned him that the meat would rot and lead to problems, but the man couldn't be dissuaded. Rain fell on the shells for three days. When the sun came out it brought maggots and the smell of death.

The town has issued a cease and desist order to no avail. Residents have erected signs that read "Honk if it Stinks," and "Stop Unwashed Clam Shells."

From Oddity Central:

"Everything is sort of taken over by this stench of decaying," says Blair Moore, who lives close to the decaying clam road. "The smell. The smell is atrocious"

"It's like bodies decaying," Sharon Moore, another local, added.
