Ducks, soaps, buttons.

We did a little shopping at The Soap Opera today. You can get just the right rubber ducky (click photos to enlarge):

Express yourself with soap:

Also for sale here, though seeming off the store's theme of bathing and grooming -- political buttons:

It's Madison. What can I say? We need to be kept well supplied with political paraphernalia.

I love rubber duckies. I got this random catalog in the mail recently that had a porcelain rubber ducky in it. It looks just like an ordinary ducky with yellow and those cartoon eyes, just in porcelain. The ducky has a hinge down its middle that opens to reveal a piece of soap.

Thanks, honus.

Lindsey: you'd love this store.

I love the photos; the store sounds like Ann Arbor's "Middle Earth."

We were selling rich women their own fatty acids, and making a profit.
