Dearest peeps Of Awe Inspiring Academic Klevurness,

As a sheep I of course am scrupulously clean. I shower a whole one time a year !!

Look here I am enjoying shower-clean-niceness (I know for some of ewe this might be deemed quite norty but "get over it" I've got it so I'll flaunt it ok ?)



Me In A Shower Literally A few Minutes Ago !!

I have a kweschun and ewe can help me by answering it  !

Why after using my shower-gel and then rinsing it off do I still have an aroma de la shower-gel on me ?  has not the water rinsed it all off ?

I need to know the answer to this so that I can appear filled with klevur joyness when I give my after dinner talk at the annual convention of "showering habits of those whom are sheared"


Thanking ewe in advance !!



Neil

It's true I shower in the nude
To not would just appear plain rude

The whole point of sheep dip is that the active ingredient is lyophilic, so it binds to your wool rather than remaining in suspension in the water, and thus prevents flies and stuff from nesting in your arse without removing the lanolin that keeps the rain off and makes you smell like a wet sheep. The active insecticide has quite a carbolicky pong. 

Human shampoo and shower gel (do gels use shower chep?) is formulated to remove the rancid sebum that makes us stink, and leave behind a non-water-soluble perfume that binds slightly to the skin in its place. It can be remarkably complicated and some anionic detergents (most shower gels and shampoos are anionic) don't shift aromatic greases (axle grease, diesel oil) quite as well as cationic surfactants like soap or Swarfega.

It is a great sadness that the antismoking lobby seem to have outlawed tobacco-scented shower gel. It used to be the only thing worth getting undressed for.

Disgusting!!! Filth!!!

I really don't expect to have my visual senses assaulted by such imagery when I log on to this site.

Accordingly, I have made such adjustments as are the necessary minimum to make this image less pornographic and thus more acceptable to viewers:-



You might notice that the fig leaf covering sheepy's modesty is a tad on the small side. I'll leave you discerning readers to fathom out why.

As to your kwestchun, oh woolly one, I must answer with a kwestchun to you, vis....... Are you using a shower gel which contains lanolin?
