What exactly do you have to do wrong hygienically in order to smell like old musty newspapers? That has always perplexed me. Most of the time you can tell what a person is doing wrong. Usually one good sniff tells you that a person has not bathed in a good long time but old newspapers? Is there a certain part of your body you can neglect for a while and it will start to smell like an old newspaper? I have noticed that more stinky ladies give off the old newspaper smell than stinky guys. Stinky men usually just reek of BO. I think it may be clothing that gives off the newspapers smell. Remember, you should wash your winter coat at least once a year or you'll end up smelling like those crazy old ladies that come in the library. You don't want that.
