10HEY ladies. Remember that bit in Dirty Dancing where Patrick Swayze’s just about to shag that ugly bird with the watermelon over a table and she starts sniffing the air in disgust and pulls her skirt up? Then Swayze realises he hasn’t put any deodorant on?
No? Well that’s because it didn’t happen. But BBM’s version is more realistic because, ladies, blokes fucking stink. And we’re not talking in the ‘ooo aren’t men pigs’ feminist way. We mean blokes, literally, stink.
Which is why we’re 100 percent sure it’s a woman who’s campaigning to stop workers in Detroit wearing perfume or deodorant.
The woman has successfully sued her company for $100,000 because she couldn’t stand a colleague’s perfume, and now city officials are planning a ban on scented products.
There will be three signs in problem buildings warning workers off ‘wearing scented products, including … colognes, aftershave lotions, perfumes, deodorants, body/face lotions … (and) the use of scented candles, perfume samples from magazines, spray or solid air fresheners.’
