The dirtiest man in the world?

worlds dirtiest manAn Iran­ian man named Amou Haji has claimed the title for the “Dirt­i­est Man in the World.”  He says that he hasn’t washed in 60 years because he thinks that clean­li­ness will bring him sick­ness. In addi­tion to the issue with bathing, Haji also enjoys din­ing on the rot­ten meat of dead por­cu­pines. Haji also enjoys stuff­ing his pipe with ani­mal feces and will only ingest tobacco by smok­ing mul­ti­ple cig­a­rettes at once. Haji alter­nates between liv­ing in a grave-like hole in the ground “to keep him grounded and in touch with the real­ity of life” and a brick shack. On the healthy side, he does keep his hair neat and trimmed — by burn­ing it over a fire — and drinks five liters of water every day out of a rusty oil tin.

In a not-so sur­pris­ing devel­op­ment, a woman in Italy has named her new­born son after the pope. In a more sur­pris­ing devel­op­ment, she hap­pens to be a nun. The 31-year-old went to the hos­pi­tal com­plain­ing of stom­ach pains and report­edly rejected the doc­tors’ crazy sug­ges­tion that she was about to have a baby. “It’s not pos­si­ble, I’m a nun,” the Ital­ian press quotes her as say­ing. They were right, she was wrong, and lit­tle Fran­cis soon entered the world. The uniden­ti­fied woman worked in an old folks’ home, but the assump­tion is that she got preg­nant on a visit to her home­land of El Sal­vador. “It seems she was not able to resist temp­ta­tion,” says the wise mother supe­rior of her convent.

It’s another headline-grabbing theft at Tar­get, but this one is decid­edly more low-tech. Some­one in Clear­wa­ter, Florida, used a skate­board to make his great escape after steal­ing a TV. In fact, sur­veil­lance video shows him skate­board­ing inside the store with the 32-inch flat-screen. After talk­ing to an employee about cell phone cases, he moves to the TV sec­tion, grabs the tv, and skates off. How did he get out with the tv?  He appar­ently pulled a util­ity knife on a store employee who con­fronted him near an exit. He was last seen skate­board­ing east into the sun­set on a major boulevard.
