In the wild world of making ends meet, you would be surprised at just how weird and unconventional some people get when scoring a little extra cash. We’ve all had those moments when our wallets felt painfully light, whether during those college years when every penny counted or just last week when unexpected expenses cropped up. In those tight spots, people get creative when they are in search of solutions.

Maybe you’ve found yourself pondering the idea of selling feet pictures online. Perhaps you briefly contemplated starting an OnlyFans account. Recently, a Reddit user sparked an intriguing discussion when they asked, “What is the dumbest way you’ve ever made money?” Well, that question lit up the comment section with stories from people that are hilarious and downright odd.

Wait, they did what for money?

That Reddit thread has over two thousand comments; some stand out for their weird approaches to making money. In the comment section, one person shared an interesting story of allowing a Craigslist stranger to shave their head and film it, all in exchange for a cool $600. Another Redditor chimed in with an unexpected twist involving Samsung’s recall of exploding batteries. They managed to purchase 120 of these batteries from Craigslist users and then sold them back to Samsung, pocketing $50,000 in the process. The strangeness doesn’t stop there. One commenter shared an unusual work-related endeavor: “I sold my urine on job sites to guys who knew they were going to be tested.”

Why may some people do weird things for cash?

A study conducted by FinanceBuzz, a financial and career website, found that around 44% of Americans participated in what they described as unconventional side hustles last year. They said the driving factor behind this is that there are many tasks that others don’t want to do, allowing you to make money by doing these odd tasks.

If you’re interested in exploring the unique and unconventional ways people have found to make money, you can take a look at the Reddit thread here.

Redditors Think These Celebrities Probably Smell Bad

Some celebrities, including Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Lizzo, Jake Gyllenhaal and Brad Pitt have admitted to not showering daily or using deodorant. Though they have habits that may not fit everyone else’s “norm” of showering, some have shared alternatives that keep them clean.

Not all celebs are skipping soap and water, though. Like many of us, rapper Cardi B doesn’t quite understand why so many celebrities have shared that they don’t bathe regularly. In 2021, she tweeted “Wassup with people saying they don’t shower? It’s giving itchy.”

Also chiming in the shower talk was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. “I’m the opposite of a ‘not washing themselves’ celeb,” he tweeted. “Shower (cold) when I roll outta bed to get my day rollin’. Shower (warm) after my workout before work. Shower (hot) after I get home from work.”

Despite what celebrities have shared or not shared about their hygiene, people on Reddit took matters into their own hands. Users gathered on a thread and shared who looks like they smell bad in the world of celebrities.

Some of the names on the list aren’t necessarily on it for having foul body odor. It’s unlikely that many of the Redditors commenting have been around the celebrities that they are commenting on (although some claim to have been). There are celebrities named for their alleged overuse of perfumes, colognes, scented creams, or patchouli or things that they’ve said about their bathing habits.

Take a look at celebrities who look like they smell bad, according to Reddit users.

  • Mickey Rourke

    Mickey Rourke is an American actor and screenwriter. In 2009, he won an Oscar for his lead role in The Wrestler. He also appeared as one of the villains in Marvel’s Iron Man 2. One Reddit user said that there are actually stories about him “smelling like a– and earring backs.”
