And I Thought My Dad Took a Long Time in the Bathroom


An Iranian woman has cited her husband's chronic smelliness as the reason she wants a divorce.

Here's how Reuters, via phrased their lede on this story:

An Iranian woman has requested a divorce from her husband on the grounds that he has not washed for more than a year.

My head must have been in a strange place when I read this sentence, because I imagined that the husband routinely washed his face for months on end, but never for longer than 11 months. Suddenly, the story became much more interesting to me. I pictured the wife nagging her husband to actually spend more time in the bathroom. "Reza! Get back in the bathoom! Do not come out until you have washed for at least one year!"
