  1. “a certain ethnicity”

    Is there a reason you re being reticent with the ethnicity?

    • We know he wasn’t East Asian.

      Some ethnicities really hurt their already malodorous aura with their diets. Curry actually smells like BO to me on its own, though my brain probably just linked it to its mix with such early on.

        Exactly!

      • I hate curry too, but I used to sit next to a Japanese guy in grad school & he stunk because he wasn’t married & how can a Japanese guy wash his own clothes? Yes, a Japanese guy stunk, because he would wear unlaundred shirts!!!

    • He’s being cute- he’s mentioned smelly Indians before.

      I wonder if it’s a genetically influenced skin microbiome, or maybe diet? Indians use lots of pungent spices.

      One of my daughters never smells no matter how long she goes without bathing. It’s really weird. Another if she skips a daily shower, it’s painful to breathe near her. They both eat basically the same thing so it must be differing skin flora.

  3. Under “merit based immigration” there will be a lot more of where that came from. It’s kind of funny though: I feel the BO perfectly corresponds to the personality of these guys. It’s like you can SMELL the shtiness emanating from those folks before the interaction even begins and removes all doubt.

    • Can’t stand those Halal food trucks. Walk by one in the street and the odors stick to your wool suit all the way up to your office.

      When I lived in Astoria a Greek dude had a Souvlaki barbecue on the corner outside my apartment. Ran the damn thing 24/7, 52 weeks/year. I don’t know why these people are allowed to get away with this. No pollution controls. Smelly Souvlaki stinking up my building lobby all day. His Souvlaki stand probably put out more particle pollutants in one year than 10,000 automobiles. If the city won’t act, where the hell is the EPA?

      I also noticed, before I left New York, in the far end of Queens, in Fresh Meadows, some Halal dudes had commandeered public space and were running Halal trucks 24/7, 52/year. This is sleepy, outer borough Queens. America will be a third-world shit-hole. Just give it enough time.

      • Yeah, that’s the worst. How the odor gets on your clothes, your body, hair, etc. and stick there. It can stay on you for days, even after washing it off. The lamb especially stinks things up.

    • The hell are you talking about? Indian food is the greatest cuisine, with thousands of different combinations of subtly different spices and sweeteners. There is no food as rich, interesting and diverse as Indian food. Have you never had a Lamb Sag? (Lamb cooked in spinach with spices) or Butter Chicken? (chicken cooked so slowly in a creamy coconut, almond and butter sauce that the fat never congeals and it stays creamy), what about a Korma (meat cooked in saffron, almond, and milk), then for people who like very spicy, nothing beats a pork vindaloo (cooked in vinegar and hot red chilis).

  6. There used to be an East Indian guy who worked behind the cash register at an independent bookstore in downtown Manhattan.

    I just loved the fact that he tried very hard to act like a degenerate hipster, currying favor from real hipsters and white patrons in general. I once made a smirk at him, and he wasn’t pleased.

    As Michael Savage would say “liberalism is a mental disorder”.

  9. Lion, any opinion on the deer explosion on SI? They are causing car accidents, spreading lyme disease and destroying property. City won’t kill them for fear of animal rights activists. Residents can kill them on private property, but only if they apply for a permit and don’t use a firearm.

    How did the deer get here in the first place? Can they swim?

    toomanyspiders

    February 9, 2018 at EDT pm

    • They swam across the Arthur Kill.
      You need a permit to kill a deer on your own property? What happened to freedom?

      Lion of the Blogosphere

      February 9, 2018 at EDT pm

      • The deer are under the jurisdiction of dept of environmental conservation so I guess they are protected? Also hunting is illegal in all boroughs so even if on private property killing a deer is ‘hunting.’

        I had no I idea they swam from NJ. How did they know there was anything to swim to?

        On the buses here are exterior ads saying ‘deers are new yorkers too.’

    • I’ve read that the male deer are all being sterilized, so in a couple of years it won’t be a problem anymore.

      Garr

      February 9, 2018 at EDT pm

      • According to people who actually know about deer, the sterilization policy is a waste of effort and won’t work.

      • It only takes one non-vasectomied deer. If anything with less fighting/ competition the remaining virile deer will knock up even more lady deer than they would have otherwise.

    • The deers are looking for “bambi”, which means “child” in Italian. You learn something new and vernacular everyday with guidoism.

      JS

      February 9, 2018 at EDT pm

      • I’m wondering if the word “mameluke” in guidoism, which means a “mama’s boy” “basement dweller” “pushover” is related to the Arabic word “Mamluk”, who was a slave or servant recruited to become a soldier for the Islamic rulers.

        JS

        February 9, 2018 at EDT pm

    • “They are causing car accidents, spreading lyme disease and destroying property”

      Maybe they’re invading Staten Island to get some of that great guido food. But how long before some of these deer are “sleeping with the fishes” regardless of what’s legal or not?

  11. Do Indians use toilet paper? My friend had an Indian co-worker, and he said everytime the Indian went into the stall to take a dump, he was very quick and never heard him use the toilet paper roll thing, which make a lot of noise in public bathrooms.

Perhaps his first reaction will be offence, but after letting it soak in, he will appreciate the tip and then he will be grateful. And the whole office will get along better with him.

  13. As an antidote to one of Lion’s previous Indian BO write-ups, I posted a personal anecdote based on the subject. Still viewable if someone’s willing to do the digging, but be warned, Lion was not amused.

    • Americanized Indians (the ones who speak like white peoples and act like white people) lack any noticeable odor different from natives. In general it seems to be IT Indians mainly because they are less hip and eat a lot of their motherlands ethnic food. The general rule is the more fobby someone seems (true for all ethnic groups) the more likely they smell like BO.

  19. Indian food is God’s divine gift to mankind, far and away the best ethnic food. However, real off-the-boat Indians often do use even more curry than I can stand, and smell because of it, although I sometimes wonder if they just don’t shower.

    Don’t understand the animus against brown-coloured people, myself, they are not at all the same as blaques and most of the ones I’ve known were quite likeable.

  21. What about farts? Do they have worse farts too, or is it just BO? They eat a lot of lentils and veggie based dishes, which make lots of gas.

    Tom

    February 10, 2018 at EDT pm

    • A diet consisting of too much meat will do that to you and diary will give you the same effects including body odor.

      JS

      February 10, 2018 at EDT pm

      • I don’t know about body odor, but that’s not true as far as farts are concerned. If you eat only meat, you will have very little to no gas. Dairy might give you some gas. But what really causes gas are plants and other carbs, which have fiber and indigestible content. They cause the most gas and worst farts.

        I don’t know about meat and dairy and body odor. I don’t know why meat would cause BO. Maybe the bacteria cultures in dairy cause some BO?

        Tom

        February 10, 2018 at EDT pm

      • Ackshully gas is caused by the phytate poisons in beans. Regular veggies like tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, lettuce, etc won’t give you gas.
