Squalid Britons Extremely Casual About Hygiene

Just your average BritonsIf you need yet more proof that the residents of Knifecrime Island are absolutely filthy individuals, here you go: "A poll suggests that more than half a million Britons only wash their sheets three times a year, allowing some 10 million bugs and dust mites to settle in for a night cap alongside them." The poll reveals Londoners to be the most slovenly members of their verminous race, with almost 25% admitting that they only give their sheets a washing up every four months, which finally explains Dr. Johnson's famous adage that "when a man is tired of London, he is-holy fuck am I itchy."

In better hotels, the sheets are changed every week!

That is disgusting. Also, totally explains how my best friend got fleas from her bed when she lived there for a semester.

When you pass out on the sidewalk every night, there's no damn reason to change the sheets.

Note to self: Change sheets tonight.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. You're supposed to … "wash" … your sheets?

(Ha ha, just kidding, I wash the sheets whenever I do laundry! Because I live with a lady. Before that I, uh, didn't.)

Um, anyone watch Hoarders last night? Glass hovels, people.

If we're to fault the Britons for anything, it would be their failure to archive history's more important artifacts–which indicates a tendency toward compulsive neatness, right! You cannot get a reprint of the front page in the pic for any amount of money– The Daily Mirror did not keep the original! (Nor did anyone in the freaking Empire, it seems!)

I had to do up the whole bed in Frette just to break the eating in bed habit (Cheetos, you name it) and now I'm supposed to wash the sheets?

Seeing as I sleep on a pile of clothes, I have clean sheets every time I do laundry.

The question being, how often do I do laundry?

I was kinda itchy the day after sleeping with Sienna. I just thought it was the clap and crabs combo.

Jesus. I'm not a Purelle-addicted cleanfreak by any stretch, but twice a week at minimum, amiright?

Those half million people are too busy doing daily sheet washes for the other 59.5 million of us.
