Why I Don't Wash

Fifteen reasons why I don't wash:

  1. I was forced to as a child.
  2. People who wash are hypocrites - they think they are cleaner than everybody else.
  3. There are so many different kinds of soap, I can't decide which one is best.
  4. Water has sometimes killed people- why take the risk?
  5. I used to wash, but I got bored and stopped.
  6. I know plenty of people who don't wash who look very clean.
  7. I wash only on special occasions, like Christmas and Easter.
  8. Hitler and Stalin were brought up to wash- some good it did them.
  9. None of my friends wash.
  10. I'll start washing when I get older and dirtier.
  11. I can't spare the time.
  12. Washing is so old-fashioned.
  13. You only end up getting dirty again.
  14. The bathroom is never warm enough in winter or cool enough in summer.
  15. People who make soap are only after your money.

Now insert 'attend church' in place of 'wash'.
