My Smelly Valentine - odd (and odiferous) things to do for that special someone

See also

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and every year men and women seem to try to outdo each other with that special Valentine's gift for their loved ones. However, there appears to be a certain trend that has been happening around other parts of the country that may or may not fit what folks from Bakersfield and Kern County have in mind when planning for this holiday.

How would you like to spend that special day taking your wife or girlfriend to visit a sewage treatment plant? Or maybe a guided tour through the aromatic depths of the city sewer system better fits your vision of a "unique" gift to give your husband or boyfriend that will make you the envy of your friends? Perhaps they will think, "Why didn't I think of that?"

Seriously, other parts of the country apparently believe these are great ideas to help you share Valentine's Day sweet nothings with your special someone. Check out the video above to see for yourself. Then, after you've contemplated whether such a visit would make you the envy of Bakersfield or not, please leave a comment below about what you think of the idea.
