Something smells fishy! One man’s bizarre habit leads to illness

A whiff a day, does not keep the doctor away …

We’ve all got bad habits; biting our nails, leaving the dishes a bit too long, spending too much time on FML (that last one’s okay with us!), but the regular routine of a certain guy in China, is something we are most definitely baffled by.

 

The thirty-seven year old from the city of Zhangzhou has recently been taking pleasure in sniffing his own stinky socks on a daily basis (we’re currently imagining your face squirming), and as a result, has contracted a severe infection in his lungs – and they say smoking is bad?!

 

After a hard day at work, he would apparently come home and take it upon himself to give his sweaty socks a good whiff – we’ve heard about foot fetishes before, but never sock sniffing scenarios!

 

After being admitted to hospital as an emergency case, this strange routine does indeed sound like something that got a little out of hand. He is currently resting in hospital where doctors are keeping an eye on him (hopefully they’ve locked those socks away, or at least put them in the laundry!) We hope he has one foot forward on the road to recovery (sorry lol).

 

Tell us, have you ever known anyone with a freaky fascination or intriguing interest?  Even if it’s a little embarrassing (I’m sure of few of them are!) we’d like to hear from you … and we promise we won’t tell them you told us!

You've never heard about sock sniffing? You've never been off the most vanilla parts of the internet. Granted, normally they're not sniffing their own socks but it's absolutely a thing.

I almost always smell my socks after work. I want to know if my feet stink or not... I sometimes add powder or spray and want to see if its working.

Ew! People just keep baffling me with their weird habits. I don't know what's worse - this or the CSI episode where there were countless men sniffing women's used panties that they actually paid money for. Apparently that's a real thing. o.O
