This reminds me of a story the pastor in my old Baptist church used to tell about a woman who was mortally offended when someone mentioned that Jesus was fully human, so he probably had zits as a teenager.
It truly is the Great Apostasy. As the Lord did not pollute His body with toxic chemicals or other poisonous and spiritually defiling things, which we in modern society do, He had nothing like zits. Washing with shampoo and such is likewise something forbidden to anyone sensitive to God. With all the fasting He did there was little need for any kind of bathroom, whatever you think of it. With all the LOL-ing here it is difficult to get a word in edgewise with this forum, but consider these...
St. Basil the Great said that the Lord Jesus Christ never laughed. In the eulogy for his sister Macrina, St. Basil said that one of her greatest virtues was that she rarely ever smiled. St. Basil says more, “The Christian ought not to...indulge in jesting. He ought not to laugh nor even to suffer laugh makers.”
St. Chrysostom said that the Lord nowhere laughed or even smiled, saying also that, “This world is not a theater in which we can laugh.” St. Chrysostom mentioned: “When you see persons laughing, reflect that those teeth that grin now will one day have to sustain that most dreadful wailing and gnashing.” Also we have this from St. Chrysostom: “Feet were made, not given for dancing, but to walk modestly, not to leap impudently like camels.”
Many people who had first hand, or very near first hand experience with the Lord, give us these examples. Such tradition should not be mocked. It was the Gnostic Christians who wrongly presented the Savior as having laughed. I can understand how some may feel compelled to laugh at what is absurd, absurdity is laughable. It is still all the better to exercise moderation in all things, even in such situations.
Any bible in the USA has hints of these truths.
Luke 6:25 “Woe unto you that laugh now! For ye shall mourn and weep.”
James 4:9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
“Once, Blessed Sarah saw a young nun laughing, and said to her: Do not laugh, sister, because by this you chase away from yourself the fear of God, and are subjected to the mockery of the devil.” written by 4th century Abba Isaiah to the nun Theodora. From the book Matericon, page 40.
St. Ephraim the Syrian – “Laughter and familiarity are the beginning of a soul’s corruption. If you see these in yourself, know that you have come to the depths of evils. Do not cease to pray God that He will deliver you from this death...Laughter removes from us that blessing which is promised to those who mourn (Matt. 5:4) and destroys what has been built up. Laughter offends the Holy Spirit, gives no benefit to the soul and dishonors the body. Laughter drives out virtues, has no remembrance of death or thought of tortures” from the “Philokalia” Russian edition, Moscow, 1913: vol. 2, p. 448
Sts. Barsanuphius and John, 6th-century (Answer 451): “In the fear of God there is no laughter. The Scripture says of the foolish, that they raise their voice in laughter (Sirach 21:23); and the word of the foolish is always disturbed and deprived of grace.”
Ecclesiastes 2:2 I said of laughter – “Madness!”; and of mirth, “What does it accomplish?”
Ecclesiasticus 21:20 A fool lifteth up his voice with laughter; but a wise man doth scarce smile a little. v26 The heart of fools is in their mouth: but the mouth of the wise is in their heart.
