Do you have a small child in your home, and, if so, does he or she hate getting in the bath? Based on the variety of designated “bath toys” I see at gift shows like NY Now, it’s apparent that the playing of bath-time games may be required in order to complete this daily cleaning ritual. Because kids. There’s no reason why bath time shouldn’t be a fun adventure for everyone, even if a sponge shaped like a hungry shark needs to get involved. This adorably fierce Shark Bath Sponge is part of the Bath Biters collection from Genuine Fred, and it can be yours for just $7.00 over at Amazon. You almost have to buy it, because don’t you want your kid to make that face?
Confession: While the Poo emoji may be a convenient way to express the feeling that something or someone is Shit (as opposed to The Shit), I am not really down with this whole ‘making poo seem cute’ thing. I don’t need to see a smiling Poo made into a pillow or a purse or a keychain. Leave me out of the Poo Renaissance, please. That goes also for the Original Bag of Poo that I spotted in a port shop in Ketchikan, Alaska. It’s just a cutesy way to market expensive Brown Cotton Candy. PASS!
Did you ever see the movie Fight Club? It is pretty good, if a bit disturbing, and is sometimes known in popular culture for the bars of Fight Club Soap that were given out to journalists and probably also movie theater owners as a promotional item when the film was first released. While soap-making is a sub-plot thread within the film (don’t ask) these bars of soap do not actually appear in the movie. In short order, however, sellers of novelty items started making Fight Club soap that you could actually buy, and now you can find these bars all over with a variety of sayings on them. Because that is how it works.
