How about some outrageous bathroom humor early on a Monday morning? My current poll on readers preferences with respect to soaping themselves in the shower shows how there are different strokes for different folks. But the serendipity/mischievous gods were watching out for us yesterday… Mrs. MM and I were shopping for handicrafts at the request of a U.S. based friend, so we found ourselves at Tesoro’s, that venerable house of Philippine crafts for the past 64 years, and found the most outrageously funny item on their shelves. Just next to the coffee and other food items, were some soaps. Mrs. MM picked one up and burst out laughing. I read the label and burst into uncontrollable laughter as well, and I quote:
Antiseptic Herbal Soap that keeps your private part (I didn’t know many men only had one part, not several PARTS) clean and free from unpleasant odor due to bacteria. Clinically proven to be safe, mild and gentle. Use morning and night or as needed for best great feeling. TUTTI-FRUITI flavor (note spelling).”
The packaging seems to suggest this is a Swedish product (but the website says it uses Philippine herbs), and this imported? soap is 3x more expensive than Safeguard! Of course I had to buy one, so I could take a photo for this post. The saleslady at Tesoro’s tried hard to keep a straight face. These would make great gag presents for office Kris Kringle exchange gift silliness. Or to put in stockings on Christmas Eve. And if you want to laugh some more, you have to read this link to the corporate website that explains who the soap is for and how best to use it. TOO FUNNY.
