How has your own body made you recoil in disgust?

this morning
when i worked out that the funky smell in my living room was coming from the rug, which had absorbed and fermented the utter stench of my feet. no matter how often i wash them, deodorise them or what have you, the smell never goes away. also, the second toe on each foot is at least an inch longer than the big toe.
my feet are fucking disgusting.

oh, i threw the rug away.

Perhaps some kind of slippers might be in order?

cure for stinky feet
My feet used to stink so badly, I could clear a room by taking my shoes off and my trainers used to make me retch.

My brother in law told me about an unlikely sounding but genuine cure. Get a tube of Nivea nappy cream. Here in France it translates as "protective cream for nappy changing"...dunno what its called in UK. Its a very thick white cream that I believe has Zinc in it. Anyway, wash and dry your feet, smear it all over your soles and between your toes, put clean socks on and carry on as normal. Wash and dry at night. It feels weird at first, but you get used to it. Do this every day and within a week or so your feet will no longer stink. I did this maybe 2 years ago now and its rare for me to get rank feet anymore....a couple of days with the cream soon sorts them again if they do start to pong again.

That's down to the zinc oxide - it's a good non-irritating anti-bacterial agent.
If you can't find Nivea nappy cream, Sudocrem will work just as well, or any other brand of zinc & castor cream for that matter.

alright DOZERTRON!
That post needs 50 more words, a comedy "waveform" and absolute ignorance of how wave-based phenomena actually work.

For bonus points, make some kind of allusion to my imaginary bedsit.

Oh man, it's just like the real thing.

i may be able to do this one or two nights
as long as i got pissed enough to forget i was wearing socks. due to the massive second toes on each foot, socks cause a scrunching effect which gives me foot cramp. i don't actually own a pair of socks, which doesn't help with the smell :(

Sounds like a fungal infection
Ask the doctor. They can probably give you something to get rid of it.

i'm banned from removing my shoes in most peoples' homes.

Another cure for stinky feet
This is apparently the way they do it in Brazil.

Basically, you need to go paddling, with bare feet, in a nice fresh cow pat.

The (harmless) bugs from the cowshit see off the smell-causing bacteria. Allegedly. Haven't tried it myself, but the wife's mother swears by it.

no cowpats round these parts
the only cow i've seen in months was fake and at the entrance to southport pleasure beach

I wonder if you have the same problem as my Dad?...

Heavens to Murgatroid his feet used to honk! So badly so, that he finally went to the docs about it (after incessant nagging from Mumflake)

He was told that the problem was that sweat was being trapped within the layers of skin on the bottom of his feet. He was then given what was (IIRC) an alcohol based fluid in a dodgy brown botttle and was told to 'paint' it onto his rancid plates o' meat straight after he had dried off after a bath.

He did this, it worked a treat and it would last a while before he needed to re-apply the stuff. I also remembering him commenting on the strange (and apparently not unduly unpleasant) sensation of peeling huge chunks of dead skin from his soles.

Euw. I mean, I'm glad it worked for him and all, but just euw.

Ye Gods! You have my sympathies...

Nuke your feet from orbit - it's the only way to be sure...
