Are You a Slob Quiz

A slob, from the Irish Gaelic slab ‘mud,’ is a person regarded as slovenly, lazy, crude, or obnoxious. In the way of further explanation, sloven, from the Middle Dutch slof, is a person who is careless in appearance, habits, work, and who is dirty or untidy. You know, a slob.

Slobdom (remember you heard it here first) is the realm within which some people live. It’s not simply a lack of good personal hygiene or housekeeping neglect, but a lifestyle that violates the bastions of civilized society. Slobdom suggests a state of cluttered dirty disorganization manifesting itself in endless ways, limited only to one’s tolerance of living in confusion and squalor.
