    If you didn't know it had gone off a little bit and you poured a glass, when you tasted it you might say "This milk tastes funny". Here, "funny" means "weird/odd".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    @ worcester. Note that ems said "This milk tastes funny". Smells also works, but goes/went don't.
