World's "Dirtiest Man" Passes Away In Iran At Age 94

 The "dirtiest man in the world," Amou Haji, an Iranian who lived in the town of Dejgah in the southern province of Fars, passed away at the age of 94.

He earned his nickname because he hadn't washed in nearly 70 years and thought that keeping filthy had kept him alive.

Haji had experienced "emotional failures in his youth" and lived alone in an open brick cottage.

His skin was coated with "soot and pus" as a result of years of not taking a wash, according to the Iranian news agency IRNA.

He admitted to eating mostly dead animals in an interview he gave to the Tehran Times in 2014, saying he really enjoyed porcupine meat. He drank 1.5 liters of water each day, cut his hair by burning it over a fire, and smoked a pipe loaded with dried animal feces in addition to the several cigarettes that the locals gave him as gifts.

He was sad when others tried to bathe him or give him clean water, but villagers did manage to convince Haji to take a bath a few months ago.

After giving in to pressure and washing, Haji soon fell ill and passed away at the age of 94.
