A Swipe With Lemon, Huh?

The New York Times weighed in on the Great Deodorant Debate this weekend with an article featuring cute-looking, mostly youngish people who claim to rarely shower and never use deodorant but just naturally smell pretty good all the time, which I’ll call bullshit on. Although I did read somewhere that if we were to switch places with people in the Middle Ages, we’d be nauseated by their stinkiness and they’d be traumatized by our noisiness, and I read somewhere else that a person’s natural scent is what helps us figure out if we ought to have babies with them. So, the upside of smelling bad is that it’ll help us be more like a person from the Middle Ages, and will also help us have a baby. Two of most people’s biggest goals.
