EuroFunk

Tuesday, June 19, 2007

It has been a long-held stereotype that many Europeans tend to smell because of their irregular bathing habits - I would like to personally debunk that myth. I believe it´s simpler than that, I think there is a EuroFunk that plagues all of the EU. Throughout my travels, I feel as though I have been saddled with a chronic case of BO. Some days, I´m showering two or three times and hours later, I feel like I desperately need another one. If you look closely at some of the pictures of me, you can see the stink lines rising off my body. My American deodorant is no match for this beast. Not helping matters further, the European showers are about the size of a phone booth; god forbid the soap gets dropped because it is irretrievable until the shower is finished. I´ve heard it´s worse in France...

    Too bad about the usb, must be the funk.

    Are you sure you didn't bring the funk with you? I'll be sure to bring u a bottle of Axe body spray, at least you'll be irresistibly funky.
