No Soap — Rope

with 2 comments

Despite my best efforts I just couldn’t interest anyone on Capitol Hill in buying any soap. They don’t seem the least bit interested in cleanliness — and when I gave ’em that old “next to godliness” cliché you’d think I was waving a crucifix in Dracula’s face.

I did manage to close a deal with the Speaker though — for rope. Miles and miles and miles of good, stout rope.

Not a problem — although I wish I’d invested more heavily in hemp futures. Who knew?

  2. I left seventeen bars of the damn soap stuck to the ceiling of Pelosi’s office. Besides, I suspect Rep. Frank’s influence may have played a part in kiboshing the deal.

    Anyway, can’t stand around and yak. I’ve got 200-plus knots to tie.
