Default Stinky Paint

Went to touch up some trim. The latex interior paint smells horrid in
the can, almost like mildew. The paint is a about 2 years old. There
is no visible contamination in the paint.

The paint itself continues to have the "funny" smell while it's drying.
Once it has dried, there is no more "funny" smell.
Is it safe to continue using this paint.

This couple were getting bizzy in the back of a car. "Kiss me where it
stinks!" she said. So, he drove her to New Jersey.

Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other: "Does this
taste funny to you?"

New Jersey is the only state in the union where you can travel its full
length from NYS to Delaware blindfolded, and be able to tell where you
are by smell alone.

Yes. Did it freeze? Putting a tablespoon of pure vanilla extract in
the paint will cut down on the bad smell.

I was wondering if anyone would get around to my question......

No, the paint has never frozen. The paint stinks like crazy while it
is drying (about 24hours), then the smell goes away like magic.

I think it may sour after it gets a certain age.

Other than the nasty smell while using it I have never noticed any other
problems and some of the trim stuff that I have used has been 7-8 years old.
