Socialist soap

When I read this headline, Socialist soaps wanted, I thought it was about cleaning agents. And for the life of me I couldn't imagine what a socialist soap would look like. How would it differ from any other soap? Perhaps you are told that you can all share it, use it every day, and it will never run out? Or perhaps that you can all share it, use it everyday and the state will give you more when it runs out? Perhaps, and this would make sense of the headline, it is rationed and acquired only by using soap stamps? Maybe socialist soap cleanses the spirit of nasty self-interest? Any other ideas?

For washing out the mouth of rational self interest.

Sounds like PC for a lubricant used for shafting the proletariat.



Good for washing brains too.

It's a TV program looking into the exciting lives of the ideal socialist family. It's called "The Gulag"

My favorite episode was when Comrade Smith reported his parents for talking of revolution against the state by owning property.

That was the episode that the brain surgeon's salary was raised to finally equal the bus drivers as an incentive to do a good job on the Presidents brain tumour.
