Please, please take a shower

A man in India hasn’t showered in 35 years. He hopes it’ll help him produce a son.

A 63 year-old-man in India has refused to bathe or brush his teeth for the past 35 years, reports the Hindustan Times. Kailash Singh ‘Kalau’ takes regular ‘fire baths’ instead.

Why? His neighbors say it’s because he wants a son – he has seven daughters: “A seer once told Kalau that if he does not take a bath, he’ll be blessed with a son,” said Madhusudan Singh.

But Kalau insists it’s for the love of his country. “I’ll end this vow only when all problems confronting the nation end,” he told the paper.

According to the report, Kalau lights a bonfire in his village of Chatav, smokes marijuana , stands on one leg and prays to Lord Shiva.

“‘It’s just like using water to take a bath,” explained Kalau. “Fire bath helps kill all the germs and infections in the body.”

That bonfire and marijuana routine is good comedy. What’s even better is that after 35 years of failure, Kalau still thinks it’ll work.

He’s 63. It’s time to stop.
