"Pregnant Beyonce hates Jay-Z's smell now"

Like I said, pregnancy can turn you into a K9 unit without the canine.

Getting nowhere fast with the argument, one day the union reps wheeled in a rack of the dancers' costumes into the meeting room. Management could barely hold their stomachs, and the dancers' request was in the next contract.

It's not necessary for deodorants to combat the actual sweat, but the smell. You can be very sweaty and still smell fine. And there's a huge difference between a little sweaty workout smell which a lot of people have and it bothers me not at all, vs. day old reeking nastiness that is so overpowering that people don't want to go near them, which is much fewer and far between, but when you encounter it, its frightening. And its my opinion that it can be controlled, I don't care what anyone says. Sorry if I wasn't specific enough in my original post.
And I don't think its that my culture smells great and other cultures as a whole don't. It's that the members of any culture who like to walk around and work out "au natural" are offensive.
I certainly don't smell like roses every second of every day. But I at least do a damned good job of staying neutral. If god forbid I was rushing out of the house and forgot to apply it or put a stick in my bag (which basically never happens- I have deodorant living in my backpack!), you can bet I'll be out to CVS on my lunch break and until then, taking routine trips to the bathroom to clean and dry. You do what you gotta do to be presentable!
It went like this:
A staffer would hang out in a stall within the restroom with either a cell phone or a hidden microphone.
Two listeners are on the phone with the studio, waiting to play the contest. A little chit-chat while they wait for a pidgeon to walk into the restroom.
When someone walked into the bathroom, the staffer would quietly describe him/her. (Ex: Corporate desk jockey, shiny shoes, briefcase, glasses and a crew cut)
Rocky would ask the players to guess whether the pidgeon would WASH or NOT WASH after using the facilities. The staffer would narrate various things like "Looks in the mirror, glances at the paper and .... okay, he's going for the STALL... ooooo.... He's got shiny shoes and he's wearing aftershave at 6pm."
The staffer would stay and watch, reporting the results afterwards. Sometimes, his or her reaction would be the funniest part of the bit.
(EWWWW! He not only didn't wash, he picked his nose before he left!)
The correct guess would win a prize like tickets to a concert or show.
No,it's not cool,but if it were illegal to not wear D.O. it should also be illegal to wear spandex or lycra when you clearly don't have the figure for it.
Wow. I'm actually astounded by this thread. Its one of the most disgusting things I've ever read here and I actually can't believe someone is getting away with being a racist prat.
It really is harder for some people to control BO. I had one family member, like genevieve, who for some time, just had a very hard time controlling her BO. The only unfortunate difference was that it lasted a couple of years. She was just starting puberty and no matter how many times she showered, washed up and reapplied deodorant, she just had BO issues. It really wasn't her fault. Now that she is older, it's no longer a problem. However, I imagine that children are even worse nitpicking bastards about this issue than adults. I can't imagine what she went through in school.
As for the gym, I don't notice people's smells. I mean sweat stinks and I know some people recycle their gym clothes a few times before washing them so, it doesn't bother me. People are suppose to sweat at the gym. What disgusts me are things that people can control like not washing your hands after using the toilet. That always disgusts me. I never got that. I mean it takes 30 seconds!
