    Hello ladies and gentlemen.
    "Brothers" Yu Hua;
    This expression " fit of stink" comes from the description of the death of the hero's father who was drowned by accident in a cesspool.

    I think there is a hint of humor there.
    I could take the French expression "en odeur de sainteté" to make a pun but it won't "fit"...
    Could anybody help?
    Thank you
