The French Stink

Not just figuratively, either, according to this poll:

The dodgy hygiene habits of the French have been revealed in a new survey.

Only one-in-10 of our continental cousins regularly uses soap and one-in-25 never takes a bath or shower.

To make matters worse, one-in-33 never brush their teeth, according to a special report by the weekly magazine Le Point, which quizzed 10,000 people.

Rather than have a good wash, many French people simply use perfume and cosmetics to mask their smell.


So one of the Anglosphere's oldest cultural prejudices about those arrogant garlic-eating pseudo-intellectual poltroons is solidly grounded in fact!
