Studying at the library for an important college exam totally stinks.

But it’s nothing compared to the smell of a notoriously stinky fruit; durian.

About 550 people were recently evacuated from an Australian college library because of a suspected gas leak.

But it didn’t turn out to be a gas leak at all.

If you can’t read between the lines, the unpleasant smell was actually durian, a foul-smelling fruit.

Turns out someone left a durian fruit inside the library, according to officials at the University of Canberra.

To paint a better picture if you’re never heard of durian before, Smithsonian magazine says the fruit smells like rotting meat, turpentine and onions, topped off with a gym sock.

And yes, it can be smelled from several yards away.

Durian has a spiky exterior and it’s filled with starchy, custard-like pods, according to CNN.

And it’s the second time the stinky fruit was mistaken for a gas leak at an Australian university.

In 2018, fire officials said it was just durian, not a gas leak, that caused hundreds to evacuate the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, according to Fox News.

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, durian makes everyone run for the hills!
