    Soap Dodgers

    As if there needed to be a study to find this out !!

    Shower-shy Britons prove a washout
    Shower-shy Britons prove a washout - Home News, UK - The Independent

    Britons do not scrub up well with two in five men and a third of women failing to have a daily shower, research revealed today.

    Just over one in ten (11.5%) people in the UK only have a proper wash once or twice a week, a poll for tissue product manufacturer SCA found.

    This puts us behind France, Mexico and Australia in the cleanliness stakes.

    Researchers found that 41.1% of British men and 33.1% of women do not have a shower every day.

    However, it does not seem to put off the opposite sex - 32.7% of women and 22.2% of men said they would date someone who did not wash every day.

    And 40.4% of those polled said they would employ a shower-shy worker.

    The smelliest people in the UK come from Yorkshire where 16% of people shower once or twice a week, and only half (54%) do so daily.

    They're not worse than Arabs, probably on a par.

    The smelliest people in the world come from Yorkshire where 16% of people shower once or twice a week, and only half (54%) do so daily.
    Which implies that 30% don't wash at all.

    Metro vs Tube. Metro smells are much worse. But...daily shower/bath, how hard is that? No self-respect I guess.

    could it be possible that the brits who come from a civilized country don't get themselves as dirty as americans who seem to be filthy and need to shower every 8 hours?

    I might be able to put up with the stench of Brittles, but their pig ignorance makes that utterly unbearable.

    Horrid people. I often find myself hoping the next one I meet is a deaf mute and begins signing toward me so as not to witness the nightmare unfold when it opens its stinking, gaping, abscessed maw.

    *shudder*

    Could it be that most Brits have a daily bath rather than a shower?

    Sorry Dog but baths were included

    London is the cleanest, where three-quarters (75.9%) of the inhabitants shower or bath at least once per day and 16.3% do twice.

    And 75.9% of Londoners are bullshitters, and 16.3% are immigrants from cleaner countries.

    When you first arrive in Thailand you think the Thais are a little eccentric for wanting to shower before and after sex. Pretty soon , you wouldn't want it any other way.

    Not to worry, they boil cabbage and sausages in it before brewing it.

    Hideous creatures.

    Not their fault. The only running water up there comes from open sewers.

    All wannabe Yorkshiremen shout the loudest. Anyway, those that dont shower are probably the immigrants in Bradford, and Leeds.

    If by "shout" you're referring to buying a round of drinks, I believe no Brittle in the history of the sad little island has been known for that trait.

    Their stinginess is surpassed only by their stinkiness.
