The Restroom in the Vatican

The restrooms in the Vatican have these little decorative hand soaps. Whoever put them there sure likes the ocean because all the soaps have a nautical theme. There’s this porcelain dish, which looks like a shell, filled with various fish soaps.

I don’t feel right about washing my hands with a starfish.

I prefer liquid soap.

I've always wondered if the Pope uses hand lotion...

Soap can be quite slippery...and a bit dangeroous. You should change that. If they like it in the vatican, doesn't mean you have to.

I'm surprised they don't make little cross-shaped soaps. NO! The best would be sinner-shaped soaps! This way, everytime you wash with it, you'd be wiping away their little soapy sins. If they don't make them in Italy, you could probably get em in NYC - you can get anything there.

I can't believe no one's said this yet, but don't you use Pope Soap-On-a-Rope?

Liquid soap is so much more hygienic - well done Benedict

You should try the pope on a rope soap. I hear it lathers up really nice in holy water.

I forgot about Pope on a Rope. Good call.

Maybe you feel better with Catholic themed soap like little saints and pope mobiles. How about some naked figures from the Sistine Chapel celing?

Have you ever tried Zep liquid soap? Reminds most of a violin.
