Judge John Hodgman Episode 119: Odor In The Court

| 2 comments

Judge Jesse Thorn fills in for Judge Hodgman this week. Jordan Morris steps in as bailiff.

This week's case is international! Christopher is English. His girlfriend, Andrea, is Spanish. And they live together in Holland.

Christopher brings the case against his girlfriend Andrea. Andrea says that Christopher re-wears his clothing too often and doesn't care for the clothes correctly. Christopher says he doesn't smell and he's happy with the way the clothes look -- so what's the problem? Who's right? Who's wrong? Only one man can decide.

Christopher's current choice of outfit. Not only does he not shower for several days, but he also wears these clothes to work and to bed.


Closet
Two examples of Christopher and Andrea's living situation.
In one of the pictures you can see that half of the wardrobe has Andrea's clothes and the other half is empty, as Christopher's clothes are in trash bags around the room.

Sniff 'n' The Fears

The cleanliness crusade of the early 20th century following the discovery of germs and viruses was a good and necessary thing. Since then, however, the soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, detergent and anti-bacterial advertising mind fuck foisted on America by the chemical and advertising industries has produced generation after generation of vain, insecure, sickly asthmatics and allergics. I agree with Christopher (whose hair looks just fine) -- the nose knows.

Waterless Bathing

Maybe Christopher's dislike of water could be solved with this product, designed for those without much access to water for bathing: the DryBath: http://live.www.designindaba.com/news/waterless-bath.

Cheers.
