There should be a law against these silly auctions.

Oh I think it's cute.

I mean, it's not like he's saying it's worth a whole lot or anything. Just 'clever' marketing.

Ok, the part where he says the lather turns white, just like the real dink, is kinda funny. I think everyone knows that all soap does that, regardless of color.

But hey, if he sells a couple more bars of green glyceryn soap 'cause he put the word 'Absinthe' on it, more power to him.

If there was a law, it should be for buying into this kinda crap. =P

The bottom line is that lately anything that's green alien2.gif , that is an old glass, is a perfume dispenser, or an unusual looking spoon is automatically associated with absinthe because apparently using the word absinthe = the other kind of green (MONEY!)

I don't know about this one.

It's bad enough to go to work with my breath smelling like absinthe. Probably wouldn't be good for the rest of me to smell that way too. Of course, most people would just think I was rolling around in a vat of black jelly beans.

You know, I had a bar of blue soap that had a light blue lather, and green soap with a light green lather...one was Zest, I think the other was Irish Springs...

...so not all soaps have a white lather. I could sell the Zest as a P'tit Bleu soap and the Irish Springs as a Pernod soap!

That's not too healthy -- there's Pork Ribs in Thar plants; much
more than in the spiritueux we all love, especially if that goat
chews up the stems in addition to the leaves.

Of course, I doubt you'd let the beast chew up all the
absinthe plants in your garden -- they're much to decorative for
that wink.gif.

"Heavyily scented in the famed black licorice blend, this soap is sure to be a favorite! Take the green fairy into your shower tonight! "

Black licorice? I wonder what absinthe he's drinking.

I'd buy an Absinthe Goat. I need my lawn mowed, and with a hint of anise-herbal freshness to boot!

The soap is cheesy marketing to be sure, but I gotta say I do like their graphic, especially the font.

maybe the purpose of the soap is to wash children's mouths out who utter the curse words "I was gunna commit suicide by eating a bottle of pills and drinking a bottle of absinthe"
