Amou Haji, an 80-year-old Iranian, is being called the world’s dirtiest man. In an article published in 2014, he told the Tehran Times that he hasn’t bathed in 60 years.
Haji reportedly lives in isolation in Dejgah village, in the Southern Iranian province of Fars. He lives a nomadic life, smokes a pipe filled with animal feces and says his favorite meal is dead porcupine and says the thought of a bath after all this time makes him very angry. In addition to animal feces, Haji apparently likes regular cigarettes as well.
He said he adopted his extreme, isolated lifestyle after suffering emotional setbacks in his youth.
Why does he smoke animal dung? I´ve heard of people using it as fuel for making a fire, but I can´t think of any reasons why someone would smoke it, other than being completely crazy. The internet also does not have any information on the benefits of smoking animal shit. However, I did find this interesting article about children in Africa fermenting human feces and inhaling the fumes to get high.
