    Of course not.

    Do mathematicians ban the perennial discussion of Fermat's Last Theorem? No.

    Well, Kouros is our perennial mystery of callolfactology. Long may its fragrance lurk.

    Wow. That sounds de-lish. Okay, churros have my vote, too. I'm off to try to find a place that sells them, wearing Kouros, of course.

    PS: I think it's great when guys say they'd never wear Kouros. That means I'm one step closer to making Kouros mine, mine, MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Waaaaahhhhhaaaaaaahaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Churros are vegetarian...unless the batter contains eggs, im no cook haha. it's basically a fried/baked piece of dough that's like 6-10 inches long, in a tube shape and 1 inch think and it's covered in sugar and cinnamon. deliciousness defined.

    Thanks, Reneirwold! I appreciate it very much and am now going to find some churros to eat or a recipe to make them myself.

    Thanks! I'll wear Kouros while eating a churros too.

    You must have Spanish hot chocolate with them, it's almost porridge-thick and you dip the churros in it. Yumsters!

    Cinnamon? Gack! Not in my world.

    Ingredients: (Makes one plateful)
    Vegetable or Olive Oil
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup margarine or butter
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    3 eggs
    1/4 cup sugar

    Heat the oil in a deep skillet. With the other ingredients, proceed as for a pâte à choux (cream-puff batter): Boil water with butter and salt until all the butter is melted, add the flour and stir vigorously over low heat until it forms a ball, then add the eggs one at a time, beating continuously until you get a smooth paste. Put the mixture into a pastry bag with a large star tip, and squeeze out a few inches at a time into the hot oil. Cook about four minutes. Drain on paper towels, and sprinkle with sugar.

    The eggs and butter make them not vegan, but I think many vegetarians are ovo-lacto-vegetarians. Vegans resolutely refuse any "stolen animal products," such as eggs, milk (including cheese and butter), honey, etc.

    If you want to pretend that you are in Spain, you eat these with a very thick Spanish-style hot chocolate, the kind that's thickened with cornstarch.

    Mmmm, ¡sabroso!

    Thanks for the recipe, jaimeb.

    But you left out one vital ingredient: two spritzes of Kouros.

    I say we make a sticky and title it "Post all Kouros comments here." This is in lieu of the already mentioned Kouros FAQ sticky.

    I don't think Kouros is discussed more than Creeds or Chanel or some others.
    And if it was stupid to discuss scents over and over, this website would not exist, it would be enough to have one article about each scent.
