This is a great item to have. I'm not gonna bid on it becuase the guy doesnt take paypal, and that, well, bugs me.

Did they really have soap on a rope in the 1950s? I am not old enough to know.

Well, they had prisons back then, so I'm sure they had soap on a rope...

That soap looks like it may cause a little itchy scratchy.

The soap listed above looks like Amyway Tonga Soap, BOT page 182, from 1975 to mid-1980's?

Just my 2 coconuts worth.

The soap that was in the auction was definately the Amway Tonga soap. My Mom used to be an Amway distributer and we had some at home way back in the late 70's/ early 80's. The soap on the Amen Wardy page is the same soap that Spencer's USED to carry. They closed 'em out a few months ago, and I can understand why, too. The shipment I got for my shop just sits there and doesn't ever get looked at. And I thought they were so cool...

Homer could almost pass for the "Tiki Village Idiot" soap on a rope.
