A man in Iran has gone 60 years without having a shower. And if that wasn’t bad enough, he also smokes animal faeces(?) and dines on rotten animal carcasses, especially porcupines. Amazingly, he is single, but he’s looking for love. Get in line ladies….
The eighty-year-old is called Amou Haji (which is a term of affection in Farsi used by women and children) and he lives in a hole in Dejgah village, a southern province in Iran. He has avoided showers for 60 years claiming that being clean will bring him sickness. He has escaped when people have tried to shower him in the past. Haji has beaten the record of 66-year-old Indian man Kailash Singh, who has reportedly gone 38 years without having a shower.
To trim his hair, Haji burns it over fire, and he checks his appearance occasionally by looking in the side mirrors of passing cars. He says his eccentric lifestyle is down to emotional setbacks that happened in his youth. But he has achieved fame at least, as the world’s dirtiest man!
