Jan. 17 (UPI) -- An Iranian man named Amou Haji who lives in a village in southern Iran claims that he hasn’t washed in 60 years because he thinks that cleanliness will bring him sickness.

He may have the title of “Dirtiest Man in the World” because it’s been reported that the previous record holder for not bathing was 66-year-old Indian man Kailash Singh, who went over 38 years without washing.

Haji apparently had some “emotional setbacks in his youth” that led him to begin leading his current lifestyle.

In addition to the issue with bathing, Haji also enjoys dining on the rotten meat of dead porcupines and “when asked to eat clean food and drink clean water, he gets mad.”

Besides eating animals, Haji also enjoys stuffing his pipe with animal feces and will only ingest tobacco by smoking multiple cigarettes at once.

Haji alternates between living in a grave-like hole in the ground “to keep him grounded and in touch with the reality of life” and a brick shack.

On the healthy side, he does keep his hair neat and trimmed -- by burning it over a fire -- and drinks five liters of water every day out of a rusty oil tin.
