A really bad joke...

This really bad joke has eggcorn relevance, but I'm not sure how.

Mahatma Gandhi was a peculiar person. He walked barefoot everywhere, to the point that his feet became quite thick and hard. He often went on hunger strikes, and even when he wasn't on a hunger strike, he did not eat much and became quite thin and frail. He also was a very spiritual person. Finally, because he didn't eat much and when he did his diet was peculiar, he developed very bad breath. He became known as a:

super-calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

Very funny kind of pun! I've heard quite a bit like these. These are also known as "shaggy dog stories". The point of them is to build up the joke that leads to the big punch line at the end.
